Burp Cloth #1: This one will be covered completely by fabric on one side. Start out by laying out on cutting mat. Cover with burp cloth.
I then took fabric and burp cloth and folded fabric around the cloth and ironed it down to create the shape I would need.
This is how I do my corners. Kind of a triangular fold?
Place burp cloth on top of fabric and make sure it is straight so you can pin it together. If you can't get it straight, go back and iron it down to the correct shape. If you get it even before you sew then your burp cloth with look better and more even.
Sew fabric to burp cloth, (I used about 1/4" seam allowance) by going around the entire cloth. Make sure when you begin and end you go in reverse a little to secure your stitching better.
Burp Cloth #2:This burp cloth I used a similar technique to the other one, excep this time I decided to just cover the ends of the burp cloth (both inside and out). I layed out my fabric, set my burp cloth on top and then folded the fabric over to see how much edging I wanted. Then I carefully removed the burp cloth and cut out my edging strips.
Burp Cloth #3: This one is the easiest yet, I found this ruffle trim at hobby lobby. I just pinned it around the edges of the burp cloth and sewed it on! Sooo easy and sooo adorable!
I'll also be sharing this cute printable tag this week before I head out on my trip. I made some pink for girls, and some blue for boys.
EDITED TO ADD: Here is a link to the free downloadable tags in blue and pink.
P.S. I'm out on vacation so I may not have access to email for questions or comments so please don't think I am ignoring you...just spending some time with family!
