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.
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!
