To contact us Click HERE A friend's daughter just had a baby boy last week, and I wanted to make something special. So yesterday I stopped by Jo Ann Fabric's and bought 1 1/4 yards of flannel and batting. You can look at the instructions for making this quilt on the blog I wrote up last summer called Easy 1 2 3 Baby Quilt Making.
I had also seen at a gift shop a few days ago some homemade burp cloths and decided I'd try to make them to match the quilt. I asked the gal at the counter how big she thought they were, and she said I could probably get two of them out of 1/4th of a yard.
Making Homemade Burp Cloths
(1) After cutting the 1/4 yard of material in half, I rounded the edges like I had seen at the gift shop.
(2) Then I pinned the right sides together.
(3) Then I sewed it and left a space so I could turn it inside out.
(4) I sewed a topstitch close to the edge around the burp cloth just like I had seen at the gift shop.
