Hiccup Hankies aka Burp Cloths

Check out my GIVEAWAY!  here !!!

I whipped up these really simple and fast Hiccup Hankies the other night for a baby gift...


9 inch x 14inch piece of Chenille Fabric (preshrunk)
9 inch x 14 inch piece of cotton fabric (preshrunk)

I pinned the right sides of the fabric together facing each other.  I sewed them together on all four edges with a 1/2 inch seam leaving a 2 inch hole open on the last edge I sewed. This is so I could turn them right side out.  (Hint:  when sewing these put the heavier fabric on the bottom so the feed dogs on your sewing machine will push that fabric through easier).  After I turned them right side out I pushed out the corners by inserting a pencil in the opening and pushing it into the corners.  I then made sure that the edges of the opening were turned inside and I sewed around all four edges again to create a finished look. here are a couple of pictures

These are beautiful! I was planning on making something like this for a friend who just found out was pregnant. We also have a TON of unused burp cloths from my son that I need to revamp. Adore the name: hiccup hankie. So clever.
