Jessie's Original Tutorial:
As promised I put together a little tutorial for the burp cloths I made last week. They were dead simple, and seriously... I think It took me longer to buy the flannel. If I was smarter and better prepared I would have bought it online. There is a much larger selection online then in any of the stores I went to. The mom to be, her baby colors were pink and green, so I really wanted to stick to those colors.
1/2 yard of each color (which ever colors you choose) I bought 1/2 yard of the solids, and 1 1/2 yards of the Prints, and 3 yards of the white and hot pink. Remember I also made a blanket so you only need about a half a yard.
Free online pattern that you can find Here.
Sewing stick pins.
Directions: Print out your pattern, tape it together, and measure it. This one is a little bit more than 8 inches wide. I also noticed that I could fit two of these patterns on the fabric if I measured selvage edge to selvage edge
At that point I then traced all my fabric to get it out of the way.
Before you turn your shape right side out, clip along your seam allowance on the curves like the diagram above. This will allow your seam allowance to lay flat inside your burp cloth.
