Diaper Burp Cloths
This is a fun and easy way to make really cute burp cloths out of cloth diapers. I found this adorable idea at Chickpea Sewing Studio. All you need are cloth diapers and scraps of cute fabric. If you want to buy new fabric just for the burp cloths, 1/4 yd is more than enough to make two of them.
Wash the diapers and then press out nice and flat with a steamy iron:
I really don't measure. I cut the fabric strips wide enough to turn down a nice edge on the sides and the ends. Then I press it down.
Pin and sew around all the edges. I used a simple zigzag stitch for these, but you can use something more decorative if you want to.
This cute way to present the burp cloths also came from Chickpea Sewing Studio.
And for a related craft, the burp cloths I made for Amby went into this basket (from Michael's), along with other gifts I had for her. I made the tag from scrapbook paper. You can buy the baby alphabet beads at Michael's, too.
These burp cloths are really fun to make and are great to go along with another gift, or just by themselves.
