Burp cloth tutorial. An easy baby gift. If you use cloth diapers as your base (others recommend terry towels), it is a little difficult to turn the thickest part of the diaper in the seam allowance and get it flat. Also: Before buying fabric, buy the cloths and determine length (or bring 1-2 with you). I went with 1/2 yd for the fabric (per the tutorial). It worked great horizontally, but I wanted a vertical layout of the print. I would have bought 4 more inches.
