Burp Cloths

Flannel burp cloths are a great gift idea for new moms.

I made some for my daughter after she had twins.  One can never have enough.

My first ones were made using any flannel I had as I needed to get them done in a hurry and didn’t have time to buy new and preshrink it.

1 yard of flannel makes two.

2 yards in coordinating or contrasting flannel makes a nice set of four.

  2. I want you to know how much I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these burp cloths. I made my first set when my son was born last year. They are perfect for all types of cleanup, but especially when you want to wipe a little nose with something softer than a tissue… and you’re done with the scent of Boogie Wipes. Nobody mistakes their Plain Jane burp cloths for mine – great for playdates and for daycare. I’ve made these burp cloths for four babies since my little guy was born (twin nieces, another niece and a friend’s son) and they are one of those gifts that get “ooh’s” and “aah’s” every time. I have to keep myself from admitting that I can whip out four of these beauties in about an hour. Thank you!!


    • I am so happy that YOU love them! I think they are easy to make and can be customized by using whatever colors you want. On the last set I made I rounded the corners just a bit but the receiver said she liked at least one squared corner as it was easier to get into a nostril to remove whatever might be there.

      My step-niece said they were the best ones she ever used for her baby. My daughter agrees, too, since she’s made dozens for her friends’ babies.



  3. My friend and I found your pattern quite some time ago. We have made dozens of them with requests for more. I usually make receiving blankets to match. I pass this pattern on. Thanks for sharing.
