I've been planning some baby gifts lately and I must say, My Happy Nursery couldn't've come at a better time! After doing a dry run on this simple and stylishly contoured burp cloth, I thought to share the project with you. I made these 4 in under an hour, so it's a fast, practical but fun, last minute project, too.
You can get 2 burp cloth faces out of a fat quarter (18"h x 22"w), which makes it economical if you made two of the same print per set- or even two sets of assorted patterns. Each is backed in our organic Cloud white flannel (1/2" yard needed for 4). The flannel not only makes for a more absorbent mopping-up-side (let's be honest here, these things are intended to be USED!), but also keeps them from sliding off your shoulder. They could be entirely made of flannel of course, but I was looking for simple and effective ways to use our lush My Happy Nursery sheeting. Plus it's silky soft for little cheeks to lay against when their bellies are full and they want a cuddle.You will need to cut out the spacer piece and tape it to the bottom (straight) edge of the pattern.
