Sewing for Baby – The Quickest Way to make Burp Cloths from Diapers
If you’re looking for a unique and practical baby shower gift, consider sewing burp cloths from diapers!
Not only is this a cost-effective and eco-friendly option, but they also provides a large, absorbent surface for burping and cleaning up after feeding time.
In this 🎥 video I’ll share my tips for making Burp Cloths with Baby Diapers quickly and easily. The tutorial include how to make a template and get the fabric the perfect length the first time (because those diapers aren’t a consistent size and shape!)
You can also get a FREE PRINTABLE of the “Something Fore Baby” gift tag shown in the photos and video featuring art from my Golf Days fabric line for Riley Blake Designs if you decide to go with a golf theme gift as well!
Begin by pre-washing, drying and ironing the decorative fabrics and cloth diapers.
This will help to remove any sizing or residue that could affect absorbency or cause shrinkage later on.
