Using only 1/4 yard of 45" fabric, this burp cloth is just what every parent or grandparent needs. It fits nicely around the neck - no bunching up.
Create a snuggly place for your favorite baby by using a soft flannel.
1/4 yard of 45" width cotton flannel (non-flannel cottons can be used, but flannel absorbs better and is
softer against a baby's skin). If your fabric is not 45" wide, you will need 1/2 yard (or you can make the cloth slightly shorter). Thread to match background

Cut out your pattern pieces and tape them together as shown on the right. Fold the fabric over from one end just far enough to fit the pattern onto the double layer. Align the top of the pattern with the folded edge of the fabric as shown on the right. Pin the pattern into place and cut out the fabric. Fold the remaining fabric piece and place the fabric on it in the same way you did the first piece and cut out the second piece of fabric. NOTE: the second piece is the back fabric. It can be contrast fabric or the same fabric as the top piece.
Place your pieces right sides together. Pin the pieces together. Using a ¼" seam allowance, stitch around the outer edge, right sides together, leaving
most of one short edge open for turning.
Turn right side out. Press under the unstitched edges ¼". Topstitch around the entire outer edge approximately 1/8" from the edge.
