DIY Burb Rag

We all want those super cute, one of a kind baby items that NO ONE else has! Well, now you can, at a fraction of the cost! These were really easy to do, and you can make several of them! You can make them all the same, or all different, its totally up to you! There are so many cute fabric patterns available out there. Pick your favorites and get ready to get some crafting on! Why not make those awesome one of a kind prints for you and your friends. Mix and match for your perfect designs.

First, gather everything you need for the project:

Scissors, Cloth Diapers, Fabric, Pins, Sewing Machine (or you can do this by hand if you prefer)

Next, fold your diaper in half, long ways. Cut your fabric to match, then lay over the top. Smooth out any wrinkles that may be hiding, and pin. Next, you are ready to start sewing! Use any stitch you want, and whip around the edges. Keep your fabric straight and even. DONT SEW OVER THE PINS! It could break your needle!

Now you are ready for the final! I got a specialty pair of scissors, and cut a cute edge! I stayed about 1/4 inches away from the stitching and cut an even line on each side! Now you have a super cute burp cloth, and its a one of a kind to boot!

Time: 20 minutes **Please note that this does not include the time you spend in the fabric store drooling over all the prints.**

Cost: For the pack of diapers (12) and 1/4 yard of fabric, I spent $5.35. I got enough fabric to make TWO burp cloths.
