Burp cloths are the most useful yet the easiest baby items to sew. You may have a number of burp cloths for your baby but you can never have enough of them to catch those wet burps.


Burp Cloth Sewing Pattern


Burp cloths are much needed to protect your baby’s clothes or even yours from the baby’s drools and wet burps. They can be made in absorbent fabrics to keep the baby’s chest dry and prevent him or her from catching a bad cold or cough.


DIY burp cloth


These DIY burp cloths can be made from the leftover pieces from a baby dress or diaper cover you made earlier. That way you can make matching sets for your baby or as a baby shower gift.


How to sew a burp cloth


Though this free burp cloth pattern is an easy baby sewing project, I enjoyed sewing it. It took me just about 10 minutes to sew one! I didn’t stop there and I made numerous ones to gift the new moms I know.

10 Minute Burp Cloth Sewing Pattern

Finished Size:

18- inches long and 8.25- inches wide (at the widest point)

Materials Needed:

1) ½ yard of fabric for the burp cloth front (you may use fat quarters instead). Here I have used flannel, you may use medium-weight cotton fabric in a color and print you like.

2) ½- yard of fabric for the burp cloth back. Here again, I have used flannel but you may use terry cloth for more absorbency.

3) Sewing Notions

4) Pattern Piece. * Enter your e-mail address and click the subscribe button to start downloading the pattern piece automatically.


Gather your supplies.


Cut the pattern piece and place it on fabric for the burp cloth front. Cut around the pattern piece to get the front piece.
Similarly, cut the burp cloth back piece from the other fabric.


You will get your pieces like these.


Place the front and back pieces layered, with the right sides together and edges aligning. Pin around the edges (picture for illustration purposes).


Burp Cloth

Sew around the pinned edges with a seam allowance of 3/8- inch and leaving about 2-3 inches to turn the right side out.


Clip the curves to reduce the bulk in the seam.


Turn the right side out and poke out the edges using a wooden dowel.


Tuck in the raw edges and press.


Topstitch around the edge, sewing the opening shut.


Lo, your burp cloth is ready in 10 minutes!
