First you will need two pieces of fabric the same size. These were 9 by 14 inches.
Pin the right sides together.
Make sure you mark a 2-3 inch spot to leave unsewn for the opening.
Pull the fabric through the opening so the rights sides of the fabric are showing and press. Fold the ends of the opening in, press, and close with a blind stitch. The chenille fabric is thick and will help to hide your stitches if you are not very good at the blind stitch like me.
Here are the four I made all finished. Press them again once you close the opening to help give them a finished look.
These fabrics are from Amy Butler's Midwest Modern II line. I really love that these are sophisticated and modern and not baby cutesy.
I rolled the burp cloths and tied a ribbon around with a tag (made with scrapbooking paper, scalloped circle cutter, letter stickers and a hole punch).
I decided to spell out the baby's name since it was four letters and I had four burp cloths. You could also spell BABY too, or leave off the tag and just roll and tie with a pretty ribbon.
They look nice in a little basket and really are the perfect baby gift!
I paired these with a package of diapers (notice the wrapping around the diapers, same concept used here for wrapping bread for gifts). This was a fun, easy and affordable gift to make.
