My nieces have been having babies
so I thought I'd like to make them something
very quick and easy and decided on burp cloths.
I really don't like the name burp cloths and I'm sure
when my nieces get these they won't call them that either
I'm thinking chuckers or chux but anyway I digress.
First of all I prewashed some fat quarters and some new white towels.
Then I cut the length of a fat quarter (about 22")
and the width of about 10 inches.
The same measurements were used for the towelling back.
I used Dickies towels for the backing although you can
buy towelling at Spotlight it's nice to support
With right sides facing stitch around the two
pieces making sure you leave a gap for turning.
Trim corners and turn right side out.
Give it all a good press.
Top stitch all around about 1/2 inch from the edges
closing the turning gap as you go.
So very, very simple but such useful gifts.
You'll have a pretty stack in no time.
