No one wants to be carrying around plain white burp rags but it can get pricey for the fancy ones. I also find that the fancy ones aren’t always as thick as the good old plain cloth diaper style ones. This simple DIY project will give you cute decorative burp rags with all the durability without spending a fortune.

How to Make Decorative Burp Rags

Items Needed

6 Cloth Diapers

1 yard Soft Flannel Material (design of your choice)

Sewing Machine with matching thread


Take a cloth diaper and lay it out flat.

Measure Soft Flannel one inch larger than diaper on all sides

Fold the soft flannel edges under till it is the same size as the cloth diaper.

Pin along the edges to keep material in place.

Sew edges using a regular or zig zag stitch.

Finally, sew a large X from each starting in each corner. (This stops the diaper from bunching in the middle and getting misshapen.)

Repeat with remaining diapers.
