"B" is for Baby Girl Burp Cloths

Sew: baby girl burp cloths

Baby Lauren just arrived and as a gift I made these bright and colorful burp cloths:

They're quick to make and such a useful gift:

How to sew personalized burp cloths:

1. Use prepackaged cloth diapers.

2. Cut out letter using this tutorial.  For the L shown here I used Bookman Old Style at 300 point.

3. Determine letter and ribbon selections:

4. Begin sewing ribbon in place, fold raw edge under at end and sew on middle side of diaper first:

5. Then turn around and sew back down outside edge of ribbon:

6. Pin letter in place centered 2.5" from bottom edge and zig zag stitch in place:

For another more detailed tutorial see my previous version here.

  1. So cute! And you can never have enough burp cloths!

  2. These are my favorite baby gifts to give. I usually add a strip of cute flannel fabric, but I'm loving the letter idea!
