In addition to your usual sewing notions and thread, to make these burp cloths you will need:
Flannel – You can get 2 complete burp cloths out of a half yard of flannel if you’re using the same fabric for front and back. I like to use different fabrics for the front and back, so a half yard each of two fabrics will yield 4 burp cloths.
Batting – I like to use Warm & Natural cotton batting. Whatever batting you choose, you want something lightweight and low-loft for best results. You can buy specifically for this project or just use scraps. You will need a piece of batting about 8.75″ x 19″ for each burp cloth.
Pattern – You can download my pattern piece here.
Cut out one piece of flannel for the front and one for the back. The pattern is designed to be cut on the fold. You can layer up and cut out two at a time, but cutting flannel is hard on your hands – some times less is more. You will also need to cut out one piece of batting in the same fashion.
