- Free Burp Rag Template
- 2 peices of 1/4 yard fabric that coordinate (I can get 2 burp rags from this)
- Size 6 or 8 crochet hook (I switch back and forth depending on the edging and my mood)
- Size 10 crochet cotton
First, cut out your burp rags using the template. Then place them wrong sides together. I like to pin them together so they don't slide around as I'm sewing, but it's not entirely necessary.
Now take it to your sewing machine and set your machine to the double zig zag stitch. It's #20 on my machine.
*I have heard that people like to use a wing stitch needle to help increase the size of the holes. I have never tried it and found that my regular needle works just fine for me!*
Sew around. I like to stay fairly close to the edge. When you are done, it should look something like the picture below!
Now I'll show you how to dress it up with a super easy edging! First, stick your crochet hook through the front of one of the bottom holes created by the zig zag stitches, yarn over and pull through.
Then you will proceed to single crochet all the way around, joining with a slip stitch.
