The perfect baby burp cloth pattern, and how to sew them production line style.

I’m just so excited to be sewing for my 3 friends who are all expecting.  Gives me a chance to knock out lots of small projects from time to time, and take a break from some of the larger projects, pattern designing, and fitting issues that clothes sewing gives me.

I was pestering one of the moms-to-be – what can I sew you, what do you really need, or don’t have enough of, or really used a lot first time round.  Wait a minute she said and came back with – a rag.  Er, what is that and what did you use it for?  Apparently, it’s a burp cloth – something new to me, but she explained she used cloths like this ALL the time and everywhere for mopping up spills, mopping up babies and toddlers, mopping up baby sick, wiping runny noses, mopping up food, etc etc.  And when nursing, she explained the proper use of draping the ‘rag’ over your shoulder while burping baby in case of any up-chuck down your back and clothes.  Nice thought.

So you want me to make you some like this.  Yes – exactly like this, except:

  • a bit wider
  • not so long
  • shaped so they sit better on the shoulder
  • thicker
  • without the binding
  • and in nice pretty fabrics

Right, so exactly like that one, but completely different.  I get it.  And she wants lots of them.  OK.  I switched to production line mode and sewed up a bunch.  And they are pretty neat and pretty quick to sew.

I made all these, including stopping to make the video, in about an hour.  I’ll make up similar bundles for the other two moms.

I’m rather keen on these myself.  I don’t think a baby will be coming our way, but these would be perfect cleaning cloths.  Really hard wearing, a scrubby absorbent side and a lint-free smoother side for windows and mirrors.  Good to keep in the car too. Then throw them in the washer, again and again.  Very eco-friendly.  You could omit the shaping and make them square for cleaning.
