Two fat quarters make a burp cloth. I like to use a half yard of two fabrics and make them in complementary pairs. My instructions on how to make these are in my post for June 10, 2014. It was the end of the bolt of the elephant fabric and I could only get 1⅓ yard instead of 1½ yard, but the burp cloths are essentially the same, generous size. I just divided that ⅙ yard difference among the six burp cloths. Here are the three pairs. The backside is the same as the edge stripes. The central section is triple thick for extra absorption.
Here are the backs. Three of them are the elephant print and three of them are the tonal pastels. The mom-to-be has a thing for elephants so I hope she likes them. The new moms I've given these flannel cloths to say that they are their go-to burp cloths.
I still have to pre-wash them before gifting, but here they are rolled up as they will be before I tuck them into a lilac polka dot gift bag.
