Burp Cloth Tutorial
So if their are awards for the funniest looking burp cloths, I think I would win! Jill’s burp clothes look so cute, not sure what I did wrong but I am not opposed to trying it one more time.
And here are mine -
I think where I went wrong was with the backing I used. I thought a white towel would work but for some reason it shrunk more than the flannel, leaving it bulky and just not laying right. So what did I learn from this you may ask?? Well I learned that sometimes deviating from the pattern can leave you with an undesired result. And I guess I would have never learned that towels shrink more than flannel.There is always something to be learned.
And you also may be wondering how this is recycled – well the flannel I used was from the goodwill and the brand new towel was from my sister, who was planning on throwing it away. Another item saved from the landfill!
