I do believe I adore these burp cloths as much as is humanly possible. To wit:
And these are only the photos I kept!
But, they really are little gems. And they were sooooo easy to make! I like small burp cloths, so I cut or pieced these 10.5" x 12.5" from my Folksy Flannel scraps.
Then I rounded all four corners with this half circle ruler. Did I ever tell you that I hate rulers with little guides in which you're supposed to be able to cut? I always dull my rotary blade by clipping the edges of the guides. Navigating these curves was virtually impossible, even with a tiny blade. I resorted to using the cutting tracks to trace my curve and then cutting along the marked lines.
Sew the flannel burp cloth top to a terry backing, right sides together. Trim the terry to match and turn it all right side out. Finish with a close edge stitch that simultaneously closes the turning gap. Voila!
I made eleven. That was all my terry.
I'm going to leave these lovelies out to pet and admire for a good long time.
Hurray for baby GIRL sewing!!!!
p.s. Thanks so much for all your well wishes and comforting comments. I so appreciate that I can count on your support! Thank-you!
