easy burp cloth tutorial
Remember those burp cloths I mentioned working on a while back? Well, as soon as we got Cora home, I realized how handy these 'burp' cloths are. You can use them under baby for a quick diaper change, as a place to dry breast pump parts, to prop baby up, not to mention their intended use. Because the ones Julie made for me were constantly in the wash, I bought some more from the baby store, but of course they were covered in an ugly teddy bear pattern. Why can't they just keep baby supplies simple?
I liked the design (similar to a cloth diaper) and the fact that they're soft flannel, so I decided to make some of my own. They are super simple, but also so practical, so they would make a great baby shower gift, and like Julie said, the new mom will think of you every time she uses them!
The photo tutorial is here on my flickr page. If anyone makes them, I would love to hear about it!
