I made another Burp Cloth - last time I made one for a girl (Here is the link) using Fairy fabric. This time I had some fabric (Upcycled Curtain) with numbers and pictures on which could be used for either boy or girl!
These are really so easy to make - I chose my own design this time because of the style of the fabric - however if you want a pattern I would suggest cloud9fabrics.blogspot.com - they also have their own tutorial with great graphics - this is the pattern I used on my previous Burp Cloth.
Step 1: Download and print pattern if required.
Step 2: Cut out the fabric pieces (I had to cut out two pieces for each sides - but that was only because of the pattern - you could just have one piece for each side!
Step 3: Attach the 2 pieces of each side together to make one piece of fabric for each side.
Step 4: Pin the fabric pieces together - fabric facing touching each other. Then stitch all the way around - leaving a small gap - to turn inside out!.
Step 5: Turn the fabric the right way around and press with an iron. Then top stitch all the way around. You now have a lovely gift for a new mum.
I also made matching items to go with this present - I will try to post about these at a later date.
