You guys. I am SO thrilled with these burp clothes.
When I first found out that I was pregnant, I basically wanted every single baby fabric that there was to offer at Joann fabric. Before I even knew if we were having a girl or a boy I picked up both of the fabrics above. I figured, hey! I like sauces, so that totally works for girls, too. I'm so glad I went with both of these! The sauce fabric is freakin adorable (and hopefully Tim will feel better wearing some saucy burp clothes in the future) and the chevron fabric is something I will enjoy wearing and taking "out" with baby.
For this project I used the fun fabric, pre-fold diapers (these are just the Gerber brand, they come in large packs of ten at target and online), and the pattern that Deby from So Sew Easy shared, and simply elongated it a bit.
After tracing the pattern onto the fabric, I cut it out and pinned it face side down on each prefold diaper. I sewed the two together, making sure to leave a small opening in order to turn it out after trimming off the excess pre-fold fabric.
Above you can see my stack of burp clothes, trimmed, before folding them right side out. The last thing I did (after folding right side out!) was top stitch all the way around, making sure to carefully fold in the fabric to stitch together at the opening.
What do you think? I'm super excited to have some unique burp clothes that are a little more contoured than just a plain rectangle. I can't wait to make more of these for friends who are expecting babies of their own soon (and maybe a few more for me, too)!
Linking up with Molly and Carly today!
