I remember seeing a blog post (eons ago) about making homemade burp cloths. The blogger (forgive me, I don’t remember) had used chenille fabric and flannel. When I went searching for chenille fabric, none was to be found. One store told me that “no one” wants it anymore so they no longer carry it. So, I used plain fleece in place of the chenille fabric. I thought the fleece would be absorbent and soft, so it could substitute nicely. The finished size of my burp cloths is 11″ X 20″.
