Way back in September 2018 I bought in some waffle cotton and made a couple of bibs for Baby Viking, now Miss Viking, (who was born that August).
As you may have seen, I had a bib fest for future Baby Tattoo recently, making a different style
but I did have a piece of waffle cotton left in my stash. After making that lot, to keep baby’s clothes clean, I realised Mr and Mrs Tattoo could probably do with something to help keep their clothes clean at meal times so, I made some very simple burp cloths.
I just cut some rectangles, fairly tea-towel shaped and added some pretty binding (fabric which featured on the quilt & bibs I made for baby Viking).
As I say, they’re just simple rectangles that can be folded in half and flung over a shoulder, but they should do the job. Now I need to get back to the pink 4ply baby sweater I’m knitting!

Lucky baby tattoo and lucky parents!
Very welcome gifts. I well remember having a muslin cloth almost permanently on my shoulder when the girls were babies. They weren’t as pretty as yours though.
yes I can remember having a load of muslin cloths for my three. Mrs T probably has some already, but I was on a stash busting mission and couldn’t think of anything else to make with my leftover waffle cotton.
Looks great, baby and parents will be well supplied and you can never have too many burp clothes!
Lovely simple gift idea, beautifully executed! She’s going to be one well-equipped baby.
Those are gorgeous.
Wonderful gifts, and I am sure will be well used
What a great use of the fabric. I need to see if I can find some of that fabric, probably better than just flannel I have been using for burp cloths.
Oh I love this idea! Do you have a specific pattern that you use for the bibs? I want to make a supply for both my granddaughter and grandson. I think these are so adorable!
not sure which of the bibs you like – sending an email your way ^^
