- 1/3 yard of two different printed fabrics (off a 45 inch bolt)
- 1/3 yard of minky dot fabric (off a 60 in bolt)
- Cupcake box (from the cake decorating section of your craft store)
- Decorative ribbon
- Matching thread
- Jumbo cupcake cups
Cut two pieces of each printed fabric to the size of 11" x 13". Cut four pieces of your minky dot fabric also to the size of 11" x 13".
Now you should have a total of eight pieces of cut fabric.
Sew around each burp cloth with a 1/2" seam. Leave an opening on one side of about 1 1/2" so that you can turn the burp cloth right side out.
Once you have sewn the cloths, trim the corners and turn each one right side out through the opening.
To poke out the corners, you can gently use the point of a pencil on the inside to push it out. (One of my favorite tips from my 4-H days.)
Neatly tuck in the edges and pin the opening you used to turn your burp cloth right side out.
Top stitch around all four edges of the burp cloth. This will give you a nice finished look and seal up the opening.
It's time to wrap them beautifully!
Fold each burp cloth up three times to get them into a shape that is perfect to roll up.
Tip: If you don't have a helper when you are tying your bow, it is easier to tie the bow around the burp cloth first and slip it off. Then put the burp cloth in the cup and slide the ribbon up over the bottom of the cup.
What a beautiful baby gift! Baked with a little bit of love and totally unique!
