Burp Cloths and Baby Washies

My friend is going to be a grandma again and asked me to make some baby girl burp cloths and washies. I jumped at the chance to sew with the soft, pink flannel and terrycloth! I ended up making three sets of four burp cloths and three sets of six washies. I think she'll be set for awhile in the clean-up department.
The burp cloths measure 11" x 17" and the washies measure 6" x 6". They are both made the same way: Measure and cut, sew pretty sides facing using alittle over a
1/4" seam, and leaving a 4" or so gap for turning.
Turn right side out, iron and top-stitch all the way around, closing gap at the same time. You can also view a tutorial at and clicking on the March 08 archives. Her post is simply lovely and more explicit than mine.
I will be making more of the wash-cloths, only bigger for Christmas. I'll post a pic when they're done.
