Easy Baby Gifts



Easy to make Baby gifts!!
Awhile back I seen some rag burp cloths on  homemadebyjill & thought they would be great Baby gifts to keep on hand. She has a great tutorial that is easy to follow. All I did was found a burp cloth shape I liked & used it as a pattern Cut 2 pieces of baby flannel & 1 warm and natural batting. Stack right sides together & sew about a 1/4 inch all the way around. Then sew a straight line through the middle to hold the batting in place. Then cut the exposed batting close to the seam and discard. Cut little snips all around the edge of the flannel and wash to get the rag effect. Then I found a bib and used it for a pattern. I just used 2 pieces of baby flannel and sewed them with the right sides together leaving a few inches to turn. Then I sewed all around the edge & added a small snap to the top! Pair these two together & they'd make a great little gift!

Wow, they really are exactly the same!! That's so crazy. I saw a person with one like this at the mall and tried to copy it. Good thing I can link back to the original now :) Thanks for your visit. Bhrett
