Burp cloths: remix

I had a friend tell me she got a lot of pretty burp cloths at her baby shower, but in the end they mostly use towels because they work better. I thought, "I can do that," and here we are.

These burp clothes are made the same way as my old ones. I just used fat quarters. One fat quarter of cotton and one fat quarter of terry cloth. I got the cotton fat quarters at the quilt festival from the Cabbage Rose booth. I love the blue and yellow. Does anyone know what line they are from? Anyway, they were in the clearance bin, so I bought a handful.

Since I did not use a cloth diaper, I went ahead and sewed a line down the thirds to make for easier folding. You can kind of see it on this print. I'm 99% sure it is an Amy Butler.

All I can say is gorgeous. I love these fabrics. They don't match, but they are each so pretty. I wish the blue one would show up better. The colors are amazing.

And for the shower I just wrap them in a scrap-ribbon and put a card in it. Perfect!
