DIY- Baby Burp Towel



We are getting closer and closer to the arrival of our sweet Kennedy girl and I am slowly checking things off our to-do list over these next few weeks! One of the things I had on my list was to make as many burp towels as I possibly could! Honestly baby items are so expensive and I am determined to make as much of it on my own as I can! These burp towels are one of the easiest things to make for your baby and not to mention- 10x cuter than any you will find in a store!

The items you are going to need are:

-Sewing Machine (+ needle and thread)

-Flannel Fabric of choice

-Towel Fabric

-Ball head straight pins

-Scissors or a Rotary Cutter

-Cutting Mat (or any safe surface to cut fabric on)

-Yard Stick

The first step is to measure out your flannel fabric and cut. I have found that a good size burp rag seems to be approx 15" X 6.5" so I like to cut my fabric about 17" X 8.5" that way I have a few inches on either side because when you sew it inside out and flip it, you are going to loose a little bit of space.


After you cut the flannel, lay the fabric pattern side down onto your towel fabric. Go around and use your pins to attach the fabrics to one another. Use your Rotary Cuter and cut out the towel fabric.
