    How does everyone make their burp cloths? I just use 2 pieces of flannel cut in an hour glass shape. I don't put anything between the layers. I have also heard of using cloth diapers on one side.

    One square yard or smaller seems to be the consensus, but I really preferred the larger ones. The one I loved the most when my son was little was 42"x42". The giver had then crocheted a single row around the edge. Having a tall kid, it was sure nice to have it large enough to work for him.
    I used to be "hot", now it's just "hot flashes!"

    I make mine 38" if I have enough material. A lot of babies are bigger today. My DIL's always liked the bigger blankets. Otherwise I make mine 36". No less.

    Elizajo, flannel always shrinks quite a bit. That is one fabric that I always wash in hot water at least once.
