Upcycled T-shirt Burp Rags

I am pretty sure that having a baby can break the bank, but I also know that you don't have to let this happen. I made some upcycled t-shirt burp rags for Miss E, and I liked how well they turned out. 

What I liked about them was they were free to me! They also are thin so they didn't stay soaked forever. They are also absorbent. 


Old t-shirt
Sewing machine or needle if you do these by hand.


Cut out your t-shirt. I don't want to give you an exact size because the size will depend on your shirt. If you see in my picture, you can get an idea of where I cut. Cut through both layers.

Here is another shirt that I decided to do a little different due to the design.

Pin together and sew. I didn't worry about trying to put mine right sides together to flip. I just sewed around all four sides. I used 1/2 seam allowance, but you can vary the seam allowance. 

You could choose to do this by hand if you don't have a sewing machine.

You are done! Pretty simple right. Here are the two burp rags all ready for some spit up action!

I would love if you would pin this project!


  1. Miss E is adorable! I pinned this post. Thanks for the tutorial, Lydia! :)

    1. I had to include Esther for the cuteness factor. Thanks for the pin, Sandra!
