I actually sewed something. Yep, that is right. I was able to sit down and sew something.
Now you know whatever I finally sewed after Bean was born had to be essential and it had to be a simple, SIMPLE easy project.
Enter this super simple and easy project- Burp Cloths
This is the perfect project for that wee one in your life or for a quick baby shower present. So here is a quick little tutorial for you all.
Any mix of the following fabrics-
flannel print fabric
coordinating knit or t-shirts
I used flannel I had left over and some old t-shirts I had hanging around.
I made 6 burp clothes total.
I cut out rectangles from 6 different fabrics, 2 from each fabric. The rectangles measured 9" by 16".
First, I wanted to add a little "umph" so I cut out small scraps from two of the fabrics and I sewed the patch onto the solid side.
I went for the messy stitched look alternating randomly between different sized zig zag stitches and straight stitches.
After the patch is sewn on OR if you choose not to add a patch, layer the coordinating pieces of fabric together right sides facing.
Pin all around the edge and sew with a 1/2" seam. Leave an 3-4" opening to turn the burp cloth out.
Turn the burp cloth out so right sides are out. Fold in the opening edge to match the outside edge. Sew around the entire outside of the burp cloth, including closing the hole you turned it out with.
Bam. Now you have some cute little burp clothes.
