Pinspiration Sunday: DIY Burp Cloths

My best friend is going to give birth to her first child, a little girl, in May and I wanted to make her something for her and baby. That's when I decided to make her some burp cloths. Because let's face it...she's gonna need 'em!

I pinned a tutorial many moons ago from Dana over at Made. She has a great tutorial on this very simple and very adorable project. Honestly, I whipped these up in no time. 

Here's what I used:
fabric- I purchased 3 different patterned flannel fabrics cut to a half yard each and a super soft fabric and got a yard of that. (now if you are only going to make a few this is a lot of fabric. I figured I could make some binky straps and have left overs for anyone else I know who may have a daughter down the road)
thread ( I used white for all of them)
sewing machine

I cut my fabric, just as Dana had suggested, to measure 10 X 18 inches. I ironed the patterned fabric as needed

Next place the fabrics together facing one another

Pin around all the edges.

Next, start sewing. I started part way on the top and sewed around all edges. You'll want to leave a little gap at one area that has not been sewn so that you can flip the fabric to the correct side.

Before you turn it right side out, cut across each corner.

Then turn it out.

Next sew along the outside. This allows you to seal up the opening you used to turn the fabric out and it keeps that line all the way around.

Then split the burp cloth into thirds and sew two lines from side to side. This will help the fabrics stay together and give a nice area to fold.

There you have're done! So simple and super cute! 

Thanks for stopping by!
