I have made several of these burp cloths for friends of mine, and they love them!
I think the shape is one thing they love. I know I could not live without burp cloths when mine were little. I made this several different ways before I found the right combination. I tried using flannel on the front and back, I also used cloth diaper material on the back. Then I tried terry cloth on the back and flannel on the front. We had a winner!
The flannel that is out now is so much cuter than what I had when my first one was little. It gets cuter every year.
The template I used is http://www.newconceptions.com/. Just go under their free patterns to find the template. Super easy!
