I live in the grand state of Texas! I' love Texas!! I've learned it's hotter than the devils tongue...more beautiful than a fresh baked cup cake....and friendlier than the high school counselor that gave you the creeps. Come share my adventures in life. I'm a mother of three beautiful one's & two hairy ones (my doggies). I must also mention that I'm the CEO of the family. I've learned that life is more than 'my fine shirt just got soaked' bath times, 'hey we are so running fashionable late again' swimming lessons, your most recent 'break down' in the laundry room (yes I'm talking to you; now put down the dryer lint slowly), the latest 'does my butt look big' moment, or even that rock awesome meal you cooked last night. Life is random, sexy, unbelievable, predictable and darn cool. Lets get crafty, create, explore Texas, and have some pretty sweet experiences!

How to Make Baby Burp Cloths

Have you ever wondered how to make baby burp cloths?  Well, wonder no longer.  Here’s a very easy way to make them.

First gather the items you’ll need to make your baby burp cloths:

  • 1 yard flannel fabric
  • Sewing machine and thread
  • scissors
  • a dessert plate (sounds strange, but trust me…)
  • rotary cutter and cutting matte

Now for the making of the baby burp cloths:

Iron your flannel until it’s smooth as…well a baby’s bottom!

Next fold it in half right sides together and place on your cutting matte.

Using your rotary cutter-cut every 12 inches.  This allows you a nice size for your baby burp cloth and you’ll get three out of your yard of fabric.

After cutting them every 12 inches take your dessert plate and place it on the corners so that you can cut around the plate for a nice rounded edge.  Moving it to all corners on all three baby burp cloths.
