Download the template to your machine for free. Print two patterns, cut them out, and clip them together to create a full form model. Place the design on top of two cotton bits of cloth. When the fabric is dimensional, make sure the fabric faces the same way.
Cut all the burp cloth inside it. If you’re planning to make different burp cloths, you can consider making a fabric bundle and cut through various layers to save time. I often recommend producing more than one at a time as the production/stitching of assembly lines is much easier than cutting and stitching one at a time.
Position the fabrics towards each other with correct sides, then pin across the whole burp cloth.
Sew the burp-cloth front and back together with a 3/8 inch seam allowance. Keep open a differential of 2-3 inches for turning. For newbies stitching around a curve can be a bit challenging! I loved keeping my needle in the downward direction and lifting my right-hand presser foot while turning the cloth gently with my left hand as I move around the curve.
Connect through adjacent seam space, but not into the sewing rows. Clipping through the burp cloth’s curve would cause the fabric to lie flat until rotated to the correct side, reducing any tearing that may lead from the curve.
Switch out the burp cloth from the right side.
Using the Thermoweb Fabric Fuse glue around the seam allowance to seal the gap such that the gap is done with each hand stitching it closed.
Using plenty of steam, press the burp cloth with a hot iron.
