Pretty Burpies


Here’s a cute & pretty easy gift idea for wee ones…

start off with

cloth diapers

the thicker ones with the extra padding the the middle are the ones I like to use

Choose some pretty cotton fabric

(I pre-washed and pressed it)

Cut it to fit onto the bottom third of the diaper

I sewed this with a coordinating thread color on top and white in the bobbin (for the underside of the diaper)

I also added an applique of the baby’s initial


added ric rac and top-stitched around the whole thing

I like these prettified




Crazy that I’ve had to start using these!

what in the world!
