Baby Burp Cloth

These are a simple cute gift for any baby using your scrap fabrics. I buy most of my cloth diapers from Walmart in a package of 12.


Measure your cloth diaper. Cut your decorative fabric about 1" larger than the cloth diaper.


Piece your decorative fabric however you would like to this same measurement: one inch larger than the cloth diaper.


With right sides together sew all the way around the four edges leaving a 2" opening on one side.
Note: I do not clip my corners on the diaper because the fabric is so thin and can pull through if cut too close.


Top stitch the opening closed and continue around all four sides of the burp cloth.


This step is optional but I like to stitch down the seams on the cloth diaper through all the layers. It gives the burp cloth that finished look.


Here it is folded and ready to go. You could make several and bundle them together with a ribbon. You can never have too many burp cloths.




This is another option for a girl. I used ribbon and ric rac on the edges to make it look cute.


Another simple way would be to sew a cute piece of fabric down the middle of the burp cloth.
This is a great way to use up scrap fabrics and embellishments.

Any new mum would love getting these cute burp cloths as a gift.

Happy Sewing!

  1. You are right, one cannot have enough burp cloths so I'm making them for my niece who is having twin boys. I pre-washed the diapers and am ready;-) why do we cut the fabrics one inch larger than diaper? Can I lay diaper and fabric right sides together and sew around and trim to size? Thanks. I think this is a GREAT idea and love your tutorial for this. Thanks

This is the million dollar quilt. Each block represents the story behind a letter from her son who served a 2 year mission. Don't you think that is such a great idea. I love it.






I love all the hand embroidery on this quilt. It will be a classic.








This was a block exchange quilt. She did a great job of her colors and arranging of blocks. I think this quilt turned out great.







Farm Girl Vintage "Woolly Sheep"

Woolly Sheep is the last block on the  Farm Girl Vintage Friday Blog Hop Sew-Along.

It has been sew much fun sewing along  with Lori Holt, Fat Quarter Shop and all of you every Friday. 


I have a pile of super cute Farm Girl Blocks that I can't wait to start piecing together to make a fabulous quilt. 


I wanted my sheep to be white so I used low volume fabrics...I'm going to add some embroidery around the edge of the sheep to help the outline pop.

My Woolly Sheep and I  took a little field trip to Birdseye, Utah.  My sister-in-law and her husband  live on a ranch... It was the perfect spot for some  Farm Girl Vintage photos.

 Don't you love this old farm truck!

The setting was a beautiful, peaceful, tranquil day.

We were able to take these photos with the perfect backdrop for Woolly Sheep.

In The Meadow Blog Tour

I’m so excited to be playing with Shari Butler’s 
new fabric line called
In The Meadow for Sweet Bee Designs!!!

These fabrics are so fresh and happy.  The colors are bright and inspire sewing fun for days on end...
I decided to make this fun quilt using 4 blocks  measuring 12 1/2" unfinished.

I cut 2 1/2" strips and then cut those  into 2 1/2" squares... the block center is 16 squares sewn  together to create a 16-patch.

The outside edge that creates the star points are made up of  16 half square triangles and 4 squares for the corners... all measure 2 1/2" square unfinished. 
          The border uses the left over 2 1/2"squares.


I love putting black and white with bright colors.  It pops the colors and makes everything grounded and cohesive.
The sashing is where I added the 1 1/2" black squares.  Where the corners meet it creates a black and white nine-patch.
