After unexpectedly flying back home to Cleveland to receive medical care for the last few weeks of my pregnancy, I have been fortunate to spend a lot of quality time with my mom in her craft room.
My mother’s craft room is really something to envy. With closets of spare fabric, an old Singer sewing machine, paints and canvas, and even more craft supplies to satisfy any creative fancy, there is never a reason for boredom.
With baby arriving soon, I’ve felt the need to nest, and I thought that there was no better way to fulfil this need than keeping up my sewing skills and making personalized burp cloths.
After searching for sewing patterns and tutorials, I found a great tutorial from the blog Diary of a Quilter on Pinterest for making the “Easiest Burp-Cloth Ever”. It really is an easy tutorial to follow, and it makes the process of creating personalized burp cloths a breeze. I created my own template using a Welche’s Fruit Snack box, and I used Gerber Organic cloth diapers as the foundation for my burp cloths.
I rummaged through my mom’s piles of cute fabrics, and selected some of the prettiest patterns to create these colorful burp clothes. It was so much fun playing with different fabric combinations for some of my burp cloths. I added grosgrain ribbon and rick rack to some of the burp cloths as well.
These burp cloths really are the easiest things to make! Each burp cloth took me almost no time to sew, and the most time-consuming part of this sewing project is picking out the right fabrics.
