Burp Cloths

These are my matching burp cloths to go with my Reversible Bibs.  The process is basically the same, check out the Reversible Bibs post here.

Materials and Supplies
1/2 yard Fun Fabric 
1/2 yard Terry Cloth in coordinating color
     *Fabric will yield 2 bibs and 2 burp cloths
Straight Pins
Sewing Machine and Thread

How I Did It
1. I cut both my fun fabric and the terry cloth to measure approximately 9 x 18 inches.  

2.  I cut a piece of fun fabric to approximately 5 x 9 inches.  This will be attached as a stripe to the terry cloth side of the burp cloth.

3.  I turned the fun fabric 'fun side down' so that the edge would be approximately 3 inches above the bottom of the burp cloth.  Note that the burp cloth is laying sideways.

4.  I stitched the fabric along the edge, approx. 1/4 inch from the edge.

5.  I folded over the fun fabric along where I stitched.

6.  I stitched along the fold approx. 1/4 inch from the fold.

7.  I folded the other edge under (shown above) and stitched along that fold as well (shown below).

8.  I placed the fun fabric over top of the terry cloth, fun side down.

9.  I stitched along the outside edge, approx. 1/4 inch from edge all the way around the burp cloth, leaving approx. a 3 inch opening so that the burp cloth could be turned fun side out.

10.  I folded the opening edges in and stitched around the outside, approx. 1/4 inch from the edge.
