Burp cloths

lilylover_arMarch 15, 2006

Hi all, still experimenting here... Has anyone made the burp cloths?? If so can you post a picture of the back of one or explain to me how you sew the material in. I'm trying my hand at one now with John Deere material and embroidering a tractor to match. So far.. well lets just say it's a good thing I didn't do a real diaper. My tires ended up yellow instead of black the body of the tractor is black instead of green.... Guess that's what I get for trying to change colors and not following the color codes. Oh well, I'm still loving it!!

There are experts over at the Martha pullen forum for these.

I've made some burp cloths. I cut them out and stitched the design on the top piece. Then, using the top piece and the bottom piece, with right sides together, I stitched the edges together, leaving a small section where I could turn it right-side out. I then hand stitched that area. I have also sewn some borders on the top piece before stitching the 2 pieces together. The back is completely plain on the ones I made.

I have made many burp cloths over the past 5 years. After trial and error my best ones are done on Dundee diapers with decorator stitches along each edge and a design on on end.........such as Jesus Loves Me with a lamb OR "spit happens" and a baby bottle and so forth..be creative...Yeah! Chris
