Tutorial: Quilted Burp Cloths

Burp Cloths – one of the most functional sewing projects for a new baby. We’ve made them before here at 3ten: burp cloth tutorial and burp cloth tutorial 2. These are quilted burp cloths.

What You Need

  • about 3/4 of a yard of fabric – I used scraps
  • 3/4 of a yard of fabric for the backing
  • serger
  • machine
  • matching thread

I made these after making the triangle quilt and as you can see, I used all the scraps.

Basically, play around with the scraps you have, cut different shapes and sizes and make the front 21 inches by 13 inches.

After I cut out all the shapes, I serged them together to make the front of the burp cloth.

Next – cut out the backing – 21×13 and serge right sides together – leaving about 2-3 inches open to turn the burp cloth right side out. Then, top stitch all around the outside ensuring you close up the opening.

Then, instead of top stitching 2 lines like in the other tutorials, this time we’re going to ‘quilt’ the burp cloth. Pick a few shapes (I did the 2 main triangles) and top stitch all around.

Done!
