Welcome

I’m sure you’re here looking for the best burp cloths you’ve ever used, and I am super excited that I can share them with you. 

If you’ve ever been holding a baby and experienced:

  • projectile vomit that comes from nowhere
  • regular spitting in large volumes that a regular burp cloth just can’t handle
  • the dreaded shoulder spit because your burp cloth doesn’t cover you or won’t stay where its supposed to
  • the slime effect--you know, when a burp cloth just smears the mess instead of cleaning it up)

Then these burp cloths are for you. I’ve even made a free downloadable pattern for you, so click here to download it.

These are the best, most absorbent burp cloths you'll ever use. Coming from a mama who has had 3 reflux babies.

    Hi Lisa I love these little burp cloths, very practical and so stylish with the cotton, great idea! I am stumped about the cotton chenille you use and am not aware of such fabric, does it go by another name? I am only aware of making it which is very time consuming. If you know of another name for this please advise me, thanks, Maureen

      Hi Maureen, great question! I’ve added a link to some cotton chenille above so you can see what it is and where you can find it. I’m not aware of any other name it goes by though. Hope that helps!

          I’d like to know where to get the cotton chenille. The link didn’t show on your printed reply. Thanks.

    I have saved all mine, even though I am not having more kids, for my kids to use as nose wipers. They will all get tissues and waste them. But the burp cloths are mostly soft, and they can wipe their nose much more. This kind might be even better! Thanks for sharing!

    I love the pattern/tutorial. But I really love that you included a list of fabrics and how well they work for this purpose! Thanks.

    Hello, these are super adorable. I tried to click the download link to download the pattern, the when I do…it just scrolls up to the top of the page…not sure what I’m doing wrong! Can you possibly email the link to me? Thank you!

      Hi Kenya, thank you! If you’re trying on mobile or tablet, they aren’t working. But if you try on a desktop they’re working just fine. I’m working on getting the mobile/table problem solved.

    Silly question: does the Chenile side go toward baby’s face and the cotton print side down on top of shoulder?

      Great question! That’s how I use them if the baby is a spitter and you need the absorbency. However, if the baby in question just drools a little I put the cotton side up.

    I have been using terry cloth for the 2nd side of burp cloths, also absorbent. You could also cut out good sections of old towels also.

      Terry cloth is my second choice for the backing definitely. And reusing old towels is a great way to upcycle and keep the cost down!

    Could you tell me the measurements ? I only have a working tablet right now and would love to make but I cannot down load from a mobile device.

      Hi Shannon, I don’t have the measurements at the moment but if you switch to the desktop view on mobile by clicking on the menu at the top you’ll be able to download it on that view. Let me know if that still doesn’t work.

    Have you ever tried it with making your own chenille fabric with 100% cotton fabrics from your stash? Was wondering how that would work for absorbency? Have granddaughter due the end of June and DIL is convinced by her friends that the ones made of swaddle cloth are the best.

      I haven’t made my own chenille–my guess is that it would be okay but not as great as the cotton chenille you buy because of absorbency. If the baby doesn’t spit a lot, I can see why swaddle cloths would be popular, but I reach for these every time–this mama wants coverage! :)

    Great tutorial. Thanks for sharing. I’ve made lots of burps and bibs for gifts and wondered how well they worked using cottons, Warm and Natural as lining and either flannel or terry as backing. Looking forward to trying these. Is the dot Minky equivalent to the 100% Chenille fabric? I have some of the Minky on hand that matches my fabric and wondering if you’ve ever used that.

      Sorry : ( I just re-read that Minky isn’t a good choice.

      Warm and natural would make a great lining. Anything super absorbent would be great in the middle!

    I don’t know if it is just me, but when I click to get the pattern on any of the links, I don’t go anywhere. I’ve tried multiple browsers and am just stuck. Will you check it?
    Thank you so much for sharing this, I really am looking forward to making some great gifts!

    Hi. Thanks for the tutorial; wish I’d found it 20 years ago for my spitter.!

    I am just wondering what size needle and tension you used. If I’m not mistaken chenille goes best with a spring size 11?

    Thanks again for your time and help.

      Hi Beth, I just use a regular needle and tension. I do sew slower with the chenille though. Hope that helps!
