A while back, I made a ton of burp cloths for the various baby showers that I attended. The tutorial can be found here. I finally have run out, so, it was time to replenish my stock. I learned a few things to make the whole process go faster. It is sad that it took me so long, but sometimes I like repetitious work over the problems solving work. Below you can see what differences that I figured out to speed out the process.
I folded my backing fabric in half making sure where the fold is. Then folded my piece to use as a guide in half making sure the folds matched up. This way I can cut multiple pieces at once which tremendously cut back on time spent on this portion of the process.
So here you can see that I have 2 folded burp cloth backs as well as my guide on top. They aren’t perfectly round but those edges will either be smoothed with my serger or the sewing machine stitching. Once this step is completed, place the backing and front pieces right sides together and sew all the way around leaving one small opening to turn the whole thing right side out. Then fold the opening’s edges inside, pin if necessary, and iron everything flat. Then top stitch all the way around and you are done. Other Pictures of the process can be found here.
I missed one of the baby showers here, and another I was able to attend this last Sunday so I brought both gifts in these cute buckets from the dollar tree with my burp cloths, and a few things from each of their respective registries since both ladies were at this baby shower.
I hope you enjoyed this, and please let me know if you have any questions so I can make this as easy as possible for anyone to replicate.
