I CAN'T SEW, but sometimes I like to pretend I know how. My mom
These are SO EASY! I would like to thank Chelly for showing me how she made them, AND for the new pile she made for Baby Z3.
Here is how I did it!!!!
First you want to cut your FLANNEL material. I just got 1/2 a yard of each pattern the boyZZ and I picked out. That made one burp cloth. I should not have even cut it because of the amount I sewed around but whatever :o) If you get more then 1/2 a yard or you really need measurements then cut 2 pieces at 18"x22" QUICK TIP: Remember to make it a little easier for you keep the fold, then when you start to sew you will only have to sew 3 sides instead of 4 ;o)
Having my material inside out (pattern sides NOT visual) I stitched a 1/2 inch seam around the 3 sides (did not have to stitch the fold) and left about 4 inches open so I could return my material right side out. (this really reminds me of the pillows I made in 8th grade...all except I am not stuffing these) Chelly told me before I turn my material right side out to clip the corners a little to make a sharp corner when finished...well I forgot to do this every single time and mine still look great :o)
Guess what WASH and then you are ready to wipe up some spit up!!!!
|These are the burp cloths Chelly made for me! LOVE THEM!|
I really would love to sew more. It is so rewarding! Please share with me any tips you may have or other projects to try. Any sites that have helped you when you first started? Anything.... Thank you so much in advanced...as always I LOVE hearing from you!
