With all the hustle and bustle preparing for little Elijah’s arrival in… well… any day/hour now… I realized we were missing something very important.
Kinsley went through burp cloths like a Crossfitter goes through peanut butter… so I NEEDED to get something made.
I rummaged through my fabrics and came across some light flannel (white and patterned), and got to work.
My little guy will absolutely love his little construction burp cloths!!
I cut two pieces of patterned flannel in my desired dimensions. I like my burp cloths long and thin… so I opted for 26″ x 12″ rectangles. I also cut two pieces of white flannel in the exact same dimensions.
I pinned the white and patterned flannel together. Make sure your pattern at this point is flipped inward when you pin!
I then sewed the pieces together, leaving 1/4″ allowance on the perimeter. Make sure to leave 4″ or so of the perimeter unsewn….
Snip your corners just a bit (without cutting your stitching)… and turn your burp cloths inside out through your 4″ hole.
Iron. Then cut a 4″ piece of some heat seal adhesive tape. Seal up your 4″ hole (just iron it into the seam).
There you have it!!
