I am so thoroughly enjoying my new sewing machine! Here’s my second project: some boutique burp cloths with GORGEOUS designer fabrics and a super soft chenille backing. I had a set like this with my second baby and they were my FAVE burp cloths EVER! They were more absorbent than the store bought burp cloths and much prettier. My son was a major spitter-upper as a baby and these performed so much better than the other burp cloths I had on hand. This is a simple sewing project, but when you pick beautiful fabrics, they will WOW the mama-to-be! You can find a tutorial for these here. I did everything but the very last step where she sewed the cloth into thirds.

The fabric I used is from Joel Dewberry’s Heirloom collection.

  1. I love the burp cloths, my daughter just had a baby girl and I would love to make these. What size did you make.?

  2. I was on the Joann fabrics website trying to find the chenille fabric you used for your burp cloths, but can’t seem to find it – do you know the exact name that will bring it up with the search engine? I’m in Canada and have to order online
    Thank you!

  3. Hi Rosanna, Joann doesn’t carry the chenille (at least not that I could find). I ordered mine from Fabric.com.

  4. Could you make these fram flannel?

  5. Thanks for posting the tutorial! I made a bunch of these for gifts and they are super quick and easy to make! I used terry cloth for the backing and grabbed a bundle of different cotton fabrics that are sold at Joann’s! I posted some pics of them on fb and would like to give credit where credit is due! Any chance you could post a link to the blog or website? I’m on my phone and can’t seem to figure out how to copy a link to this page! Thanks again!

  6. I love your blogs but have a quick question on these – did you use Terry Chenille? It’s not as soft but I thought it might be better for spit up?

  7. Love that burp clothes.Thanks for sharing.

  8. Very nice! I love your choice of fabric, the colors look great together! I have never used chenille, will have to try. Thanks for the tip!

  9. Love these, my daughter and niece are having babies, this will be a great gift!

  10. Your pattern isn’t showing up :(

  11. Lovely! I actually have bath towels like these. Had them made in Bali but the next batch i will make myself and choose really nice towelling. Sewing them in thirds ensure that the towelling and cloth stay together and don’t slip around.
