How to Sew a Contoured Burp Cloth- no pattern necessary!

January 14, 2019

How to Sew a Contoured Burp Cloth- a fast & easy sewing project for a baby essential!

How to Sew a Contoured Burp Cloth

Anyone with a baby knows that burp cloths are essential! They’re also a fast, easy and beginner-friendly sewing project. I had been using hand towels, but I found that this contoured shape stays on the shoulder better. You can use a variety of fabric for this project. I chose cotton flannel, but lightweight terry cloth and cotton jersey would work as well.

There’s no printable pattern for this project which makes it ideal for sewing newbies. The contoured shape is created by tracing a bowl from the kitchen.

This Contoured Burp Cloth takes only 10 minutes to create and it makes a great gift!

Fabric:

Cotton flannel for the front (12 inches wide 30 inches long)

Cotton flannel for the back (12 inches wide 30 inches long)

Lay the fabric down flat. Place a bowl (that measures approximately 5 1/2 across the top) 9 inches down from the top of the fabric. Trace a semi-circle.

Place the pattern pieces on top of each other- right sides together. Sew all around, leaving an approximately 4 inch opening so you can turn the piece right side out. Once finished, iron the seams flat.
