I’m sure Jackson will be more then happy to throw up on them!
A while back, when I first found out I was pregnant, I bought 36
Gerber cloth diapers from an online friend that was going out of
business. I had heard that while these are crappy for diapering
purposes, they work wonderfully as burp cloths and when she offered me
some for a great deal, I snatched them up!

Thought it would be fun to jazz them up a bit so I dyed them and
sewed some ridiculously cute vintage fabric to the centers. What do you
think? I’m sure Jackson will be more then happy to throw up on them!

Now I realize there are a million burp cloth tutorials out there.
Most of them either use a Serger or the zigzag stitch on a normal
machine. Since I don’t have a Serger (I wish!) and my zigzag stitch
always looks messy, I decided to try something a little different.
