I used 3 different patterns in the Snuggle Flannel, 12 in of each, for the front. For the back you can also use Snuggle Flannel, but I chose to use 1/2 yard of Terry Cloth. It seems to soak up a little bit more!
There is a set of Bibs and Burp Cloths that my Step-Mom had made for my son that i loved. I used those as a guide when making my pattern.
Using the Bib and Burp Cloths that I already know I love, I traced them onto the the paper side of Freezer Paper. This helped me determine the fabric cut sizes I would need. Remember to add 1/2 inch for seam allowances.
My pattern for the burp cloths measured 16"h x 8"w. I would need 3 fabric pieces that measure 6"h x 8 1/2"w.
Pin fabric pieces right sides together along their long edges.
(Simply peel off Freezer paper and use on the next piece!)
Once you have turned them right side out, tuck in your open edge so that it is even with the other edges. Sew a seam around the entire piece, backstitching once you have come back to where you started.
