So as a beginner, I have been trying out simple designs. My friend is having a baby and I decided to try burb cloths. Many other blogs note how simple these are but having never sewn before, it may be intimidating. Here is my take on a unique design.
Start by measuring the width of your diaper cloth. Mine was 12.5 inches. Then, cut out a rectangle from your fabric using dimensions + 1 inch for the width and 6 inches in height. So mine was 13.5×6.
Next, fold the rectangle in half and turn it inside-out. Then, sew the small sides close using 1/2 inch seam allowance on each side.
After you finish sewing the sides, turn it inside-out so that you have the right sides facing you. It should look like a rectangular pocket like the one below:
Now take your diaper cloth and fit it into the pocket as neatly as you can, like a taco:-)
Once you fit it inside the pocket neatly, sew the tops close on both sides. It should look like this now:
