DIY: How to Make Adorable Homemade Burp Cloths

baby deals

I was recently shopping at Target and I saw a mom feeding a baby using the most adorable burp cloth.

Since I’m bold when it comes to talking to strangers about baby products (really, who doesn’t want to hear how cute their supplies are??), I asked where she bought the burp rag she was using.

To my surprise, she said a friend of hers had made a set of burpees for her and given them to her for a baby shower gift. I’ve known for a long time that burp cloths can be a great DIY project, but the discovery reminded me that I should share the information with all of you!

Even better, if you already have the fabric, these can be a very low-cost project for your own baby, or a gift for another lucky baby. I also want to note that this is a fantastic beginning sewing project.

If you’ve been looking to start sewing, few projects are easier than most of the burp cloth tutorials featured below!
