"B" is for Burp Cloths #3

Sew: personalized baby boy burp cloths



A friend requested two sets of burp cloths for newborn baby gifts:


We went with classic navy and blue boy colored ribbons down the middle:


And my friend asked for a slightly different personalization on each burp cloth.

MONOGRAM:


FIRST NAME:


FIRST & MIDDLE NAME:


And my favorite just the FIRST INITIAL:


It's hard to see in the picture above but the navy ribbon has a red stitch running down the edges:


All tied up and ready to gift:



Here's how I made the burp cloths:

1. Choose grosgrain ribbons 5/8" wide works best:


And use prewashed cloth baby diapers.

2. Straight stitch ribbon on inner panel seam:


3. Cut out fabric letters to fit and pin in place:


4. Zig zag stitch bigger letters.

5. For smaller letters handstitch over fabric letters.
For the tiny letters I used heat-n-bond to hold the letter in place while stitching.
