When I buy or order flannel for a receiving blanket, I always buy 1.5 yards of each print. It seems to be the perfect amount for a good sized receiving blanket, and leaves just enough left over for one or two matching burp cloths.
With all the single and double layer receiving blankets I’ve made lately, I had a big pile of fabric waiting to be made into burp cloths.
To save myself from burp-cloth-sewing boredom, I chose three different easy styles, and made a few of each. It’s so nice to have that checked off of my to-do list and have the fabric out of my sewing room and into the baby’s room. I’ll be sharing a tutorial that gives a quick run-down for each of the three burp cloth styles soon!
