What you need:
gerber or carter's cloth diapers/burp cloths (from Walmart or Target)
fun fabrics (1/4 of a yard makes 2 burp cloths)
1. You can start out by washing all of your cloths/fabrics. I don't always do this to be honest though.
2. If you did wash, then the fabrics will need to be ironed and the stray strings clipped
3. Lay out your burp cloth and overlay the material so that there is about 2 inches extra on all sides. The center strip of the cloth is thicker, use that for guidance on the long side.
5. Select a large zig-zag stitch on your sewing machine, and get to work! Make sure the folded line of the fabric is in the center of your zig-zag. Also, dont' forget to back-stitch at the beginning and end!
