I shared this tutorial last week over at This Crazy Blessed Life!
I am reposting it here just in case you missed it!
I am going to share with you how I made Hollis’s burps!
Ribbon, Ric Rac, Pom Poms, etc.
(any trim you would like to use to pretty up your burp)
They will all shrink differently, so this is VERY important!
(I usually end up cutting my fabric about 21 inches long by 6 inches)
Iron the long sides of your fabric down about 1/4 of an inch.
Then iron the ends of the fabric 1/4 of an inch.
If you want to applique or monogram your burp, now is the time!
I like to iron the edges THEN add the applique or have the fabric monogrammed because you can see the edges of the fabric and be able to place the name/initials accordingly.
FIY: make sure that your monogram is about 2-3 inches away from the short edge!
Now place your fabric face down and then lay the cloth diaper on top.
Fold the ends over the burp cloth and iron into place.
It should look like this:
At this point, it would be super smart to pin the fabric into place…
I was lazy and totally winged it…
Top stitch one of the short ends.
(Don’t forget to backstitch!)
Then stitch both long sides into place.
At this point, I like to flip the burp over and top stitch the remaining short end.
Now you have a super cute burp!
If you want to make your super cute burp FABULOUS,
add pom poms, ric rac, ribbon, ruffles or a cute fabric flower!
I add these AFTER the basic burp is complete!
If it’s gonna wipe up spit… it may as well be cute, right?!
Here are a few I made for my baby, Hollis, who will arrive in early August:
these are so simple to make and are the perfect gift for a new baby!
Who wouldn’t want their baby to have the cutest burps on the block?!
