I've begun my very first grandma sewing! I made these burp cloths for my grandson who's due in May.
First, I bought a 10 pack of Gerber prefold premium 6-ply cloth diapers at Target. Then I washed and dried them four times, using hot water and a hot dryer, so they would shrink as much as possible.
Next, I went to my stash to find some colorful fabrics that I think my son and daughter-in-law would like.

I experimented with making different kinds of burp cloths, just using cloth diapers and pre-washed fabric from my stash. They were simple and fun to make. I'm curious to see which type the parents will find most useful.
