Burp Cloth Tutorial

Do you find yourself looking to give a baby shower gift that is both functional yet personable? My friend taught me how to make these very simple yet ADORABLE burp cloths! Every new mother will need these, so it is totally acceptable to stray from the registry to make these. :)

 All you need is:
6 ply burp cloth (don't get 3 ply because they are too thin)
About 1 yard of ribbon
Sewing machine

Step 1: Cut two strips of ribbon that measure top to bottom of the burp cloth.  
Step 2: Place and pin both strips of ribbon along the two seams of the diaper

Step 3: Sew a basic stitch down one side, then across the bottom and back up the second side and finish across the top.

 Step 4: DONE!

Now you can make burp cloths for any occassion! Here are the ones I made for my sister-in-law at her baby shower this weekend. (Found the cute ribbon at Michael's)

Tie a bow around them to dress them up for a cute yet simple little gift. 

Let me know how yours turn out!
