Burp cloths aren't something I use very much. Selah spit up maybe twice as a baby and Maddox's "spit up period" was pretty short. But I felt like sewing and they're super easy so now I have a handful of them should I end up needing them. I bought a 3 pack of flour sack cloths at Walmart for $1.99 and then picked out some grey double fold bias tape. I cut the existing hems off of each cloth and then folded them in half. Then I divided the halves into three parts. Each burb cloth is double layered so one flour sack cloth made three of them. Then I just sewed the bias tape around the perimeter. Done. They're certainly not perfect. Folding the bias tape around the corner was not my strong suit…but I like them and they'll do the job.

I love flour sack cloth. It's soft and absorbent and crisp and clean…for now at least : ) Plus, I haven't met a stain that oxyclean doesn't get out so I'm not too worried about the fact that they're white. I love baby things. I love baby things that are simple and clean cut. I'm not crazy about cutesy prints and typical "girly" things. Finding these things in a retail setting seems nearly impossible unless I want to pay much MUCH more for top brands and organic products. It's so much easier, cheaper and more fun to just make my own!



  1. In the end, what are the measurements of the clothes?
