Froggy Burp Cloth Tutorial

I have been wanting to make some burp cloths for some time. I saw a few tutorials on how to make real simple ones and was determined to make them. But one night, not being able to sleep, I kept thinking about the new unused towels that my dad gets from the company he works for... And then this froggy burp cloth idea came along! My hubby thinks I am mad for not sleeping because I got excited about this haha. 

So this is just a pictorial tutorial... I don't really have measurements for it, and it's so super easy to make.

 Step 1: I used a Face towel... I took 1/4 of the towel for the cloth.

Step 2: Measure the length and width of the towel.. and cut out the same for a green fabric.

Like so....

Step 3: Pin them together and sew the sides...

Don't forget to leave a few inches to turn it inside out.

Step 4: I free hand this pattern... This is for the froggy's face and mouth. Cut it on a fold.

Step 5: Do the same for a red fabric for the inside of the mouth

Step 5: I added a pink felt that somewhat is supposed to be the tongue of the frog (Optional). Do this before Sewing the two pieces together. I used some extra balance of the towel to give it more padding on the inside otherwise it would look and feel too flat.

Step 6: Cut out the eyes and nose of the frog however where you want. I made mine with black and white in the back to look something like this:-

Step 7: Pin the eyes and the nose and sew them in place.

Step 8: Sew all around the sides of the body tucking in the small gap that was left open for turning inside out.

Step 9: Open up and pin the middle of the froggy head to one middle end of the froggy body

And there you'll have the froggy burp cloth!

Hmm... It looked a little to boring so...

So I added some spots to it... This is also good so that when you launder it... it wouldn't shift around too much around the middle.

And there you have it. A very simple yet fun and funky burp cloth.

Till I sew Next :)

Well, it can either be a froggy burp cloth or a snakey one... Since both my hubby and dad thinks it's more snakey than froggy, it can be wither I guess. I just realized I'm missing the ears :s
