Babies & Burp Cloths!

I’m so excited to share with all of you the news of the birth of our newest grandson!  He was born just a few days ago, and is so precious!  Because of this little one, I’ve been doing some fun baby sewing projects lately.  Today’s projects are practical and cute – burp cloths!

Burp Cloths For Baby from

I saw this sewing project on my blogging friend, Deby’s site – So Sew Easy.  She was making several burp cloths for some of her friends who were pregnant last fall.  When I saw Deby’s burp cloth pattern, I thought they would be great to make for our daughter who was expecting her third baby.  You can find Deby’s post about the burp cloths here.  She even did a great video about how she made the burp cloths production style.

I’ve always used cloth diapers for burp clothes, but I like Deby’s pattern better.  She’s made the burp cloths with a curve on one side for the neck of the lucky person who’s burping the baby.  They fit nicely on the shoulder.

I found two really cute flannel fabrics from Joann Fabrics, and they also had some soft terry cloth that is made for babies.  I used the soft terry cloth for the reverse side of the burp cloths.

Deby’s pattern and instructions are on Craftsy, and are very easy to download.  You can find the link to the pattern in her post.

I decided to make several of the burp cloths production style like Deby shows in her post, instead of one by one.



They made up very quickly.  I did sew the burp cloths together with a serger instead of a straight stitch machine.  Deby didn’t have a serger at the time her post was written, but said that now she would serge them too.  It cuts out the step of trimming the seams.

These burp cloths are mommy and baby approved!
