Burp Me Please! An insanely simple baby gift.

1 cloth diaper
“Burp Me Please!” embroidery design

This is a short post to add to last week’s baby quilt. I always keep cloth baby diapers in my stash. The old kind…like my mom used. They make the most awesome spit up rags for the kiddos. AND – since they are lint-free, dad can use them to wash the car!


I had some left-over flannel quilt binding that was already made up so I used it to quickly bind up the edges of the diaper. No fancy binding tool needed here, just a tuck and sew over method to finish the closure.

One of my favorite embroidery sites is Embroidery Designs. This file was on sale and it’s already the right size for my 5×7 hoop so no resizing required. It was just two colors of thread and finished in about 5 minutes. I did use medium weight tear-away stabilizer because of the very open weave of the diaper.

And in less than 30 minutes, viola’! A cutie homemade baby gift!  Now, even if you don’t have an embroidery machine, these bound diapers still make great baby gifts and just may keep them in the house where they belong and not out in the garage.  And pssst, it’s just another great idea to support you getting your own embroidery machine right?
