Anyone else love cute burp cloths but hate the price tags? Now you can make your own with a few simple steps. I made one last night and wanted to share the steps with you in case you want to make your own.
I also sell them if you want to order some!
If you use this tutorial please send me a picture or link to your picture, I’d love to see the different ones you make!
- Iron & Ironing Board
- Sewing Machine
- Gerber 3-Ply Prefold Cloth Diapers
- Flannel Fabric
Step 1: Make sure you WASH your cloth diapers & flannel fabric. You will need to iron the cloth diapers after you wash them.
Step 2: Measure the middle part of the cloth diaper that you want to cover (it is thicker than the sides) The middle part of my cloth diaper measured 17 3/4 inches x 4 inches. IMPORTANT: You need to add an inch to each side for the flannel fabric for the seam allowance (mine measured 18 3/4 x 5 inches)
Now, fold each side under 1/2 an inch on each side and iron.
Step 3: Pin the flannel fabric to the middle of the burp cloth and sew on top all the way around with matching thread (or a different color fabric for a contrast)
That’s it, enjoy your AWESOME new burp cloth. You can also add a strip of ribbon to the edges of the flannel for an extra-cute touch! Here’s a picture of my burp cloth all finished! :) I know these are going to be so perfect for baby shower gifts.
