Burp Cloths

Baby gift needed ASAP... I'll make burp cloths!
I used two coordinating fabrics
I cut them the length of the fabric 54" (makes 2)
5" for the middle bug fabric
3" (x2) of the orange
3" (x2) again of the bug fabric

Sew all the pieces together, using 1/4" seam allowance

Trim threads and IRON!

I use new white bathroom face towels (wash before sewing)
(I've made with cloth diapers, and they don't work as well)
Put right sides together and pin.
Sew around fabric 3/8" seam allowance,
leaving an opening to turn right inside out
(or is it outside in???)
Trim extra fabric and towel
turn inside out/outside in??? :)
Pin the pieces together and quilt stitch in the ditches of the
seams of the coordinating fabric.
Fold cute, tie a bow around them. Done!
