I've been crazy busy - working, sewing, baking, cleaning, eating...wedding flowers, wedding cakes...it's enough to make my head spin...faster! For a baby gift, I decided to make some hooter hiders (Ha!) also known as nursing covers (blah!) and then I had to make some burp cloths to go with them and then I realized that I hadn't made any for the girl so back to the machine I went!
These burp cloths were made by following this tutorial from MADE. I've usually sewn burp cloths by adding cute fabric to ready-made cloth diapers...but Dana has this great tutorial for making them any size you want, still with cute fabric but without necessarily using diapers...on these burp cloths I used diaper fabric and these cloths measure 10-inches by 16-inches...not too big, not too small...just right! Seriously easy and fast...two burp cloths take about 15 minutes, start to finish!
Eight burp cloths in an hour!! That's pretty fast! They make great gifts...and you can use scraps! I backed some of these cloths with waffle fabric I had to make dish towels out of...I also had some towel fabric and I used that on a few...whatever soft, absorbent fabric you have will work.
Four hooter hiders...two for the girl, two for a gift...easy, fast and a fraction of the cost of buying them. Plus, they are practical and used over and over and over! There are patterns on-line but if you'd like a really easy pattern, shoot me an email and I'll send it to you. Now I just have to finish the drapes for Elsa's nursery and make a car seat cover...today!!! No rest for the wicked!
