    Default Question on baby burp cloths

    Hi Everyone, I have a question on burp cloths. I don't find flannel to be very absorbent, but maybe that is just me. I have a charity project coming up and want to make burp cloths. I also want them to be functional and effective. What do you ladies/gents use for the fabric. When I had my boys a Looong time ago I used cloth diapers for burp cloths and they were very absorbent. But at $15 a dozen now it would be quite pricey to make. I hope someone has an idea or two for me. Thanks for the help.

    Here is a tutorial I use to make my baby gifts. I use terry cloth yardage for the back. Some people also use bath towels.

    I use the prefolded diapers.
    Embroidery a cute little baby design.
    Or personalize with the babies name.
    Really absorbant and the right size.

    I use flannel FQs. Just envelope them & stitch all the way around.

    I have always used flannel print on top, and fleece on the back, 7" x 27" with rounded corners. Very absorbent. I have sold over a thousand over the years I made baby items as a hobby business. Once washed the flannel becomes more absorbent. Also useful to mop up a full size coffee..

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.
