Making Burp Cloths for Infants

March 13, 2015

A completed set of flannel baby burp clothsI had extra fabric after making bibs for my niece. You never have enough burp clothes when babies are small, at least not many that look fun, so I made these for my brother and his wife. They're also large enough to mop up spills when my niece gets older.

I bought $1.00 receiving blankets at the dollar store, and some terry cloth on sale at the fabric store. I made 4 burping cloths out of one receiving blanket. If you have a serger you can put them together in a snap.
