Burp Clothes

IMG_4637

My best friend is having twin girls so I decided to make some burp clothes for the shower.  I have been told that the clothe diapers are the best for burp clothes because of their absorbency. Just buy a package of cloth diapers (I got Gerber ones from Target) and 1 yd of flannel fabric.  You can make about two clothes from 1/2 yd of fabric.  Make sure to pre-wash the flannel fabric first!  Pin the diaper to the fabric (right side facing the diaper) and then cut along the edge.

I then sewed along the edge with a 1/4″ seam leaving a hole to be able to turn it right sound out. After right side out, top stitch all around the edge with the 1/4″ seam and then follow the guides on the cloth diaper and sew along the two lines down the center. You have a easy personalized gift for a shower!
