Easy Burp Cloths

Just want to wish a very special birthday to our very own Claudia!!!  Happy Birthday!!

As you know, I am in baby mode.  She is coming!  And soon! I have been feeling not ready until last weekend. I had the chance to complete a few projects.  There is just so much to do to get ready for a baby.  And when it's your second, you start to get ready a lot later. 
Spit up is something that comes in abundance with any baby.  Yep, it is one of the less fun aspects.  I remember with my first how many burp clothes we went through in a day.  And because you have to wash them so often, the ones I had got a bit thrashed.  I found these dish rags at Ikea and was immediately inspired to make some burp clothes out of them.  There are a million ways you can make a burp cloth.  Here is my version :)

You will need:
-One package of Krama towels from Ikea
-2 yards of flannel (I got 1/2 yard of 3 different patterns)
-Sewing machine
-Scissors

First cut your flannel to fit the rags/towels.  I tried to rip them, but you can only do that on two sides.  So I ended up just cutting them.  I like the ragged edges look, so I chose to just sew it straight on there.  And then your done!  I did not turn or iron edges. You could do that though if you want a cleaner look.  Once you wash the finished product it will start to fray.

This is my favorite part.  That little loop is going to help me in some way.  I am sure of it.  Hang it here or there.  Or clip it to this or that.  I just love that loop!
Happy Sewing,
Christie
