A quick sew which makes a great baby shower gift, especially when combined with matching bibs.


  • 2 types of Flannelette Fabric
  • Thread
  • Existing burp cloth


  1. Trace around you existing burp cloth onto the 2 fabrics so they mirror each other, leaving a 3/8 inch extra seam allowance.
  2. Place your fabric pieces right sides together and pin.
  3. Stitch together using a 3/8 inch seam allowance and leave a 2 inch gap for turning.
  4. Trim edges and clip corners. Snip any curved edges.
  5. Turn right way out and iron. Fold the edges of the turning hole in and press.
  6. Top stitch around the outside using a complimentary thread and beginning with the turning hole to close it.


If you don’t have a burp bib handy to trace you can find plenty of free patters online. Or you can just cut rectangles - 30cm wide and 50cm high gives me a size I’m happy with but do what works for you.

  • I didn’t know there is such thing as a special burp cloth. Any piece of cloth could do


  • We use cloth nappies, but I would love to have these.


  • I’m not a sewer, but very clever and look easy to make.

    • They’re so much fun to make! I think you could probably even hand see them with a bit of patience.


  • Thank you for sharing. I love the design.
