More on the DIY Diaper Burp Cloths

Several weeks ago I entertained myself by making diaper burp cloths.  So many of our friends are having babies, and I think that these will make cute, personal baby gifts.  Especially if they are monogrammed.  But I don't have an embroidery machine, nor do I know how to embroider by hand.

Last week I made a couple of diaper burp cloths for a friend's baby shower, which was Saturday.  On Thursday I realized that I should get the cloths monogrammed, since our friends had just decided on a name for the baby.  I called several local businesses for pricing and turn-around time, but none would be able to do the work by my deadline.  After a little searching, I found a local woman who does this sort of work out of her home.  Her prices were extremely reasonable and she was able to do the work overnight!  I dropped the things off on her porch on Thursday afternoon and picked them up Friday morning.  Paul said it sounded like a shady drug deal, but no, no drugs in these diapers.

This is how they turned out:


  1. Wow! Those are super cute! You should start and Etsy account!

  2. All I have to say is you go girl! These turned out sooo cute!

  3. Did you just put the patterned fabric on the front of the burp cloth? I like this because all the other ones I see, the fabric runs right down the middle! Good job.

  4. These were so easy, Alisha. It would be cute to do some to match your bibs.

    The fabric is just on the front. I did some other ones where the fabric runs down the middle but I didn't like the look of those so much and I think the fabric takes up too much surface area. You want to clean up spit-up with the diaper part, right!?

    I've also seen where people use ribbon instead of fabric. It would be cute to do just a border on a diaper. And quick, too.
