Thanks for the tutorial. I will be making some,. Boys' Slim Fit Performance Jeans. Many Indian men tied garters straps, thongs, or bandana-like cloths around their leggings at the knee to help keep them in place. Reply Laurie, the girls and Scott January 20, at 4:
I was looking for ideas for a precious new baby about to arrive and this is perfect. The notching just helps the fabric stretch and contour more smoothly when flipped, just like cutting diagonally on a corner to get a nice point when flipped. Just made these today and they are lovely. Your pattern covers more area from little spit-ups.
I use batting to make it softer, thanks again for the pattern. I just made 5 in a little over an hour for my new grandson. As another poster mentioned it covers more area than the figure eight pattern. Thanks for sharing the pattern.
I love, love, love these fabrics. So cute for burp cloths, but I would also love to use them for so many other cute baby things. I made some similar in a rounded oval shape. I was worried that when they were washed they would bubble out and need pressing. Did anyone pre-wash the flannel first, or did you wait until after it was sewn to wash the burp cloth? I seem to remember that flannel might shrink a lot after washed…. Ashley M — I would pre-wash the flannel, yes.
Actually for this item I would pre-wash all fabrics because of the different rates of shrinkage between the two fabrications. Thank you so much! What a cute pattern! I paln to make a dozen for a co-worker.. Thank you for sharing! Can you use terry instead of fleece, and cotton on the other? I am new at this and wanted to see who has tried it out. Thanks for the pattern, these are beautiful!
I added one more layer of flannel for extra absorbancy and it turned out great. I would recommend not forgetting to clip the curves, as it makes it lay flatter when you turn it right side out. I love the fact that the flannel kind of clings to your shirt too, keeps it from sliding off.
Thank you for sharing it with us! This might be a dumb question but im not a seamstress! What is the spacer for? Is it to lengthen the printed pattern?
It is a piece of the pattern that needs to be taped to the main piece. Otherwise it would not fit on an 8. See diagram with attached. Thank you so much for a terrific and simple pattern! I like that the cloths have a contour in them. I have a showering October with dragon theme, tough to find. Now I can personalize my gift for sure. Made these today as a shower gift. I used cottonprint and cloth diapers in place of the flannel.
The topstitching after you turn the burp cloth keeps the batting in place. I look forward to making these for friends in the future! I made a bunch for my sister and she loves these. She even asked me to make her more of this style. I love how nicely they lay on the shoulder. I am a brand new sewer and I need a little guidance on the spacer…anyone information??
Anonymous I was looking for a pattern for these as I had seen them quite a few years ago. Thank you so much for sharing this pattern.
Wondering if those that added the batting noticed a difference in the absorbency? I think the pattern needs to be rotated before you print.
This makes the pattern go the long way down the paper and you get a much bigger burp cloth. I have made both sizes and bigger is better! These were a beautiful gift! I added a layer of fleece I had laying around to make them more absorbent my boys threw up a lot! I felt like they were really substantial and fancy! Thanks Anonymous August 4th…for your tip to change the printer setting to Landscape! Thanks so much for sharing this pattern! These cloths are so fast and easy to make.
Made a dozen as part of a baby shower gift. Just a suggestion, but I have used receiving blankets for the fabric. I have cut out two today. I used my embroidery machine and personalized them. I used towels and sweatshirt material. Lettering is purple and paw is gold. On the second one, I used deer antler design and then added his monogram to the design. Instead of turning and sewing, I am going to use camouflage bias tape on the one with the monogram and LSU fabric but in bias strips for the other.
Oh my goodness, I had some this shape that my Mom made for me. They were my favorite. My littlest is now 3 so no need for burp cloths, but they are still my favorite. This is a great pattern. I a m not a great sewer but I have made more than a dozen for a friend of mine and am making more for my friends who are having babies.
Thanks for sharing such an easy and great pattern design! Thank you, thank you for putting this out here, for us to use. I have made so many, for gifts. Thank you so much!!!!! Would you mind posting a photo or a link to a photo of how your finished burp cloth looks with the extra lines? Originals can be washed in the dishwasher and are perfect.. Sorry… I writed washing machine, no dish washer. Found you via Pinterest. Love this, thanks so much for sharing it! I have a swiffer and a pledge handle , but have been to cheap to boy the cloths now I can make some: If you cut the flannel in the diagonal you will not get so much fraying… But I love this thanks for sharing it…..
How about using old tee shirts? Thank you for this! I love my Swiffer duster, it makes it fun and easy to clean. But the last box of refills I bought on clearance at the local grocery store are perfumed and I hate the smell.
The more I wash it, the better it gets. I spray a little diluted vinegar on it, and it picks up all the dust like magic. This is such a great idea!! Every time I buy a new box of refills at Costco they come with a new handle in the box, this is a great way to do away with the extra plastic.
Glad to hear you liked the flannel better! I found out quite accidentally that minky fabric is one of those that picks up and really holds dust. Way to expensive to buy for this, but if you have scrap pieces all is good. Keep hook as a handle and bend the rest of the hanger into 2 loops to fit into the fabric duster. What a great idea!!! I have been making these out of fleece. Dust sticks to the fabrics better than to the sweeper ones.
I may have to try them from flannels. I have some of that too! Would you mind if I share your blog with my twitter group? I am actually pleased to glance at this weblog posts which consists of lots of valuable facts, thanks for providing these information.
I made one yesterday and just used it. Works better than the dusters that go with the handle! Just used some fleece scraps! I also cleaned my ceiling fan-and lastly-before tossing it in the wash-I dusted the sides and behind my toilets-always hard places to get to and get dusty.
The Swiffer kits are always fairly cheap, but they kill you on the refills and I hate throwing them away. The right way to use Google Adwords is revealed in an easy manner.
Penguin algorithm that got rolled out in April, almost shook SEO industry. I use these Swiffer dusters for my house cleaning business. I have plenty of flannel so I will make some for use on the job. I also will make some for Christmas presents next year for my environment conscience friends.
So i would still be keeping it green if i used spray. But these look so cool. That I might just have to haul my machine out. Maybe, If I talk softly to it. It might work for me. Thank you so much for the pattern, for these reuseable dusters. I will be making some,. I bought a Swiffer Duster Kit. I like the idea of getting into tight spots to dust and having the dust cling to the cloth cleaning part.
However, the handle was difficult to attach and keep from being covered with the cloth cleaning part. The plastic tongs would end up scratching the furniture I was dusting. It did pick up the dust and was disposable but I did not like having to pay over and over again for the cloth cleaners. This is a great idea. It can be made to keep the handle tongs from touch furniture and then washed to clean and reuse.
Love this pattern and idea. Thank you so much. Reusable, simple to make, fun to use, and all around great idea. Thank you so much for sharing. As someone who has terrible allergies, this product actually works better than the store bought and disposable kind. Such a great idea! I will definitely be making more to share with family and friends. Thanks so much for this tutorial. I plan to make my daughter some also. I made the first one from an old sweatshirt and the second one from scrap flannel.
I bet I can find a few for a good deal at my local thrift store too. I also love the idea of cutting the flannel for the swiffer floor cloth replacements! Also, I wonder how those car chamois would be as a duster…. To print it is 64 pages long!
Like this idea and want to make one. I made them tossed in washer and dryer and now have a mess. What could I have done wrong? Hmm, that is strange! So sorry you had trouble with it, I wonder if perhaps it had something to do with the quality of flannel?
I also used flannel and had the same issue. Tried it again and found that i had used the thin cheap one the first time. The thicker ones work great and no mess. Thank you for the info! Great Tutorial for the Swiffer Cloths!!
I have made some already!! It was a survey from VoiceFive. Throw them in the washer and they are clean again! I love this idea. Quit buying the disposable one and started washing the years ago.
Now I can make my own. Also, quit buying the pads for the floor Swiffer and use an old towel rag and a spray bottle of water. I made one with some fleece scraps I had, I hope it works. I almost fell over in the store when I went to purchase the refills for my duster!!! You are a cleaning angel in disguise. Thank you for this project. Going to work on it watching the super bowl!!!
Hi Bonnie, the pattern download contains the pattern pieces only. The instructions to complete this project are found in this blog post: My daughter has a cleaning business and always looking for green alternatives.
I made similar ones out of fleece for her a few years ago but just made 10 of these with scrap flannel. They were on a bottom shelf and packaged by Gerber. Thanks for the nice tutorial. I always use cloth diapers for my little pie. Now after reading your post i will try to make it at home for my sweet baby.
Thanks for nice post. I made some burp clothes using the extra fabric we had from the canvases and window cornices. I made 10 total using 4 pieces of fabric and cloth diapers we picked up at Target. Below are the four fabrics I used. Saw these cute burp clothes in a local childrens store where I live….. My niece said, Aunt Brenda you could make these!
I had already planned on making some burp cloths with chenille and fabric, but no one had chenille in stock where I shopped. I had some cute fabric! After finding your tutorial I headed to Walmart for a package of diapers! Thank you, Thank you! So easy and so cute! You can make everything from quilts to play mats to receiving blankets, to toys and burp cloths and wall hangings.
Thanks for the tutorial — the sewing is simple enough this great-uncle can probably handle making these for his new grandnephew.
Do you mean a lot of lint on the diapers themselves? It really is an easy tutorial to follow, and it makes the process of creating personalized burp […]. Ok, so really dumb question here…. I understand about the center panel of the diaper, but what do I do with the 2 thinner panels on the sides? I just finished making 20 of these for my daughter-in-love to give her best friend who is having twins.
I like to use decorative stitches and different colors of thread so it adds a little more color. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed. Follow Me on Instagram. Site by Spunmonkey Design.
