Here is more about how to make decorative burp cloths from pre-folds.
Last time, we layered 2 pieces of print fabric (right sides together) with a pre-fold, sewed around the edges (leaving an opening), turned everything right side out, and pressed it all flat.
Remember that these burp cloths can also be used for diaper changing pads, place mats, bibs, as well as cloth diapers.
Here’s a picture of several burp cloths before they’ve been turned right side out.
Once they’re right side out and pressed flat, put like colors together and match your thread.
Sew around the edge of each burp cloth, getting as close to the edge as you possibly can. The closer, the better. At the corners, you may have to lightly lift the presser foot and pull the fabric along, as it can be a bit thicker in the corners.
Lastly, you want to sew along the pre-fold lines. You can usually feel them through the layers. Mark them by scratching along with your nails or a point turner. Then, sew along the lines.
When you’re done, you’ll have a stack of useful, absorbent burp cloths/diaper changing pads.
And if you’re in a bind, they make very fashionable cloth diapers! A great addition to any diaper bag! They definitely look better than pre-folds by themselves!
