Burp Cloths and Washcloths



Things have been moving kind of slow around here.....around the blog I mean. 

With summer I had grand visions of projects accomplished and lots of posts.

Alas.....it was not to be......

But I'm here today with some simple burp cloths and baby washcloths that I made for a recent shower I hosted.

These were inspired by the recent release of 'Monsters University' and some really cute monster flannel fabric I found. I suppose it goes without saying that these were made for a little boy...yet to be born.

{Here are the two fabrics along with a pack of regular washcloths}



Regular white washcloths are lined with flannel on the inside in contrasting patterns. This gives a nice soft lining for baby's sensitive skin.


I purchased a half a yard of each fabric which lined 6 washcloths and made two double sided burp cloths.


If you can't tell these pics were taken outside. I took my sewing machine on vacation and sat out on the deck and stitched these guys up. 

If you want to make the washcloths here's what I did. First I cut my fabric  to size and pinned on the backside of the washcloth.



I used a zigzag stitch to stitch it in place.



Here are the settings:


For the burp cloths I took the two contrasting fabrics and laid them with right sides facing each other and stitched them on all three sides. Then they were insided out and stitched shut. These really could be any shape or size you want depending on your fabric.



About a third of the way up from the bottom and down from the top I stitched across the burp cloth to keep the two fabrics from pulling apart.




Thanks for stopping by!
