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.
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.
