My sister had her second baby during the summer. With all the use that burp cloths get, they get kind of gross. I knew she would appreciate some new ones.

I have shared a super easy burp cloth before. The drawback of that tutorial is that you need a serger. The average DIYer doesn't have a serger, so I set out to create some burp cloths using a regular sewing machine.
