Burp Cloths

I had made a few burp cloths last year but they were more the size of wash cloths. This time around I decided to make them a little bigger so they can rest easily on the shoulder when burping a baby. I made a neat little stack of six. The fabric is Kumari Garden by Dena Designs and they are backed with cotton chenille.

Once again I cannot emphasize how easy these are to make. Here's a quick tutorial.

1) Cut two 10.5" x 18.5" pieces from a quilting fabric of your choice and 100% cotton chenille. Since these items are for a baby I would recommend pre-washing all the fabrics. 

2) Place the two pieces top side facing each other and pin as shown below.

3) I added my signature label :)

4) Top stitch using a 1/2" seam allowance, leaving an opening for turning it inside out.

5) Clip the corners to reduce bulk. Also trim the extra fabric.

6) Turn inside out from the opening.

7) Pin the opening.

8) Top stitch all around.

9) A close up of the corner.

10) And there...done.
