Cutest Burp Cloths EVER

My mom made these for a friend of ours a while back when her beautiful baby was born. About a year later our friend asked her to make some for a friend of hers. It was so fun the first time that she jumped at the opportunity. So, this is a post for my mama and her fabulous craftiness:

The Finished Product:




 What You Will Need:


  • Cloth Diapers
  • Fabric scraps 
  • Ribbons the same length as the width of your diapers
  • Sewing machine (hers has and embroidery option - shes spoiled)

Let's Get Started:


1. First you are going to want to unfold your cloth diapers
 and measure the width so you can cut your fabric scraps about one inch wider (to allow for a seam)
2. This step is optional: BEFORE you add extra fabric, do your embroidery.
3. Lay out your diaper and lay fabric scrap on top of it. Cut the desired length of fabric. This is totally up to you!
4. Make sure you leave about a half inch for the seam.
5. Lay out fabric, diaper, and ribbons to decide what combinations you like best.
(I just LOVE the super hero one. Definitely my favorite.)

6. Using a straight stitch sew the fabric and ribbon on to the diapers.
VOILA! Revel in your handiwork! Great beginner's sewing project!

  1. Do you finish the back or do you leave the embroidery exposed?

  2. OK I'm sorry this really explained nothing. Did you wrap the fabric around the back? What did your finished back look like? Were all the raw edges folded and ironed and everything attached to the front? I'm sorry but you left a lot out.
    Very cute but not a tutorial.

  4. I'm sorry you feel that way. I left most of it to your imagination because it is so fun! We did leave the embroidery exposed on the back. We folded the fabric and attached it to the front. We put ribbon on the edges to hide the folded fabric. We did not wrap around the ends, we just folded it. Since we did this four years ago, I don't have pictures of the back to show you. I hope that clears up some of your confusion.
