I’ve been unpacking tiny baby clothes I found that I was missing my burp clothes. I must have decided after two babies they were cashed.
I found a great tutorial for quilted burp clothes at Swoodson Says. She put together a great rainbow burp cloth using fabric and a Gerber prefold. Since I didn’t have any prefolds on hand I used her other suggestion a flannel backing.
This project works great with my goal to use up my scraps! I used the tutorial as laid out, just with my scraps instead of the original rainbow pattern.
I have used simple flannel burp clothes before and really liked them. They stay where you lay them and they don’t take a lot of space up in the diaper bag. Disclaimer- I’ve never had a big barfer, these are ideal for smaller messes though!
Instead of ladder stitching my turn opening closed I topstitched around the outside edge. Since I’m using flannel instead of a prefold it was easy to add the topstitching!
I’m going to sew up a bunch more before baby to restock my drawer. What is your favorite stash buster?
