  1. Baby burp cloths just like in the stores come in different sizes. So for this, we don't do a pattern. The one you see here is 10"x18". I've made them shorter or longer with scrap fabric. For this specific tutorial, we will go with 10x18.
  2. Lay your flannel or other fabric out flat. I like to iron it so it's perfectly flat The EasyPress 2 is great for this. Then cut out the 10 x 18, by hand or using the Cricut Maker and rotary blade.
  3. Take the fabric and lay it out on a piece of terry cloth and cut out the same size piece. Terry cloth is used for the side that will soak up all the fun stuff the baby spits up. Burp Cloth cricut Pattern
  4. Clip or pin the two pieces together with the pattern side facing in. This will be much like sewing a pillow and be flipped right side in. Start at the end and halfway through it stitch all the way around the end leaving a small hole at the end when you stitch back around. This leaves the opening to flip the fabrics. sewing a diy burp cloth for a baby
  5. Once you've stitched all the way around pull the fabric through the hole and make sure all the edges are pushed out. Fold the hole in and topstitch. diy baby burp cloth
  6. For the last part, I divide the burp cloth into three's by folding. Press them to mark the fold then stitch down the two folds. This will create an easy way to fold the cloth when going into the diaper bag. This is totally optional but makes it easier for folding in the long run. baby Burp Cloth Pattern


Flannel, fleece, and terry cloth are the most absorbent so I use these. But you can use a character fabric for one side and the terry cloth for the other.
