Burp Cloth Tutorial

burp cloth tutorial muslim blog

This is the first time I have made a burp cloth and I was extremely surprised at how easy they are to make. I made this with a bundle of baby gifts using the same fabric. I downloaded a free pattern but you could just make up your own design.  This is where you can get the free pattern - they also have their own tutorial with great graphics:

Step 1: Download and print pattern if required. (Pic 1)
Step 2:  Place pattern over your chosen fabric and cut out two pieces. Make sure you cut out one shape fabric facing and one not fabric facing - so that when sewn together they are the same shape. (Pic 2)
Step 3: Pin the fabric together - fabric facing touching each other. Then stitch all the way around - leaving a small gap - to turn inside out!.
Step 4: Turn the fabric the right way around and press with an iron. Then top stitch all the way around. (Pic 3) You now have a lovely gift for a new mum. (Pic 4)

How easy was that!

The photograph below shows you the Tagged Blanket that I also made from the same fabric. Here is the link to that tutorial: tagged-blanket-tutorial
