    Not wanting to "waste" anything, I made these burp cloths to practice quilting on. I also tried out some of the decorative stitches on my machine and used up some old thread and left over bias tape. My granddaughter (Mommy to be of twins) was really into Tigger from Winnie the Pooh when she was young. My thinking was the babies (and Mommy and Daddy) would not care how perfect the quilting was when they were spitting up on these! LOL

    These would be great gifts to put with a matching bib and quilt. ;) I've never made the bib or burp cloth. I guess I need to learn. Since my sister is due in Aug! :)

    Yes, but you really do not need one. I made some several years ago and just curved in the middle a little and rounded the top and bottom. (I made bibs then also). Also you can sew together and turn instead of binding. I still cannot get use to the idea of having a special cloth for burping. In my day we used a clean cloth diaper!

    I love that you used a decorative stitch to secure the binding. I do that too, but don't see a lot of other people doing it. These are wonderful burp cloths and your grand daughter is going to be very pleased. :thumbup:

    Those are so cute. What a great way to use up all those extras without waseting anything. Way to go.... Mom and Dad will appreciate those burp cloths when the time comes.

    I have made lots of burp cloths (one daughter had twins who both spit up). The warm and natural is very absorbent, I use flannel with it. I've also found that 'car diapers' from Target are cheaper and much nicer than the ones sold in the baby departments. I guess men value their cars more? I decorate them on the ends and middle with my leftover quilting scraps. What a great idea to practice your quilting! I think they can never have too many burp cloths.
