Baby Gift Tutorial: Minky Burp Cloth

Chances are you know someone expecting a baby sometime soon. Sister? Friend? Colleague? Whether you’re going big on presents or small scale, consider making these super easy, handmade burp cloths as part of your baby shower gift. They’re not only extremely practical for parents, but babies will love the feel of the minky material — which is why, after all, this fabric is used for everything from little ones’ stuffed animals and blankets to changing pad covers and play mats.
