Hey everyone! I have a huge stash of rickrack and whenever someone I know has a baby these burp cloths are the first request I get. My brother and his wife got a call yesterday morning telling them their was a baby girl ready for them to adopt. They get to bring her home tonight. I'm so excited!!!

I got the majority of my rickrack from my grandmother when she died. There's the Wrights rickrick you can buy at any fabric store. I have also seen a few colors and some Jumbo size sold by the yard at Holly Lobby and Joann's. The best selection of Jumbo and unusual colors  I've seen at quilt shops. It's a hit and miss when I need to buy some.

Those are really cute. I've wondered what to do with the giant stash of rick-rack I inherited from my mother-in-law's basement.
What kind of fabric do you use?

I first made them about about 8 years ago for my sister using plain average flannel, which, I hate because they pill so much, but I didn't know better at the time. I made them again a couple of years later when my sister had another baby and used knit. My sister did not like them, she said the flannel ones were her favorite because after their done pilling the burp rags are really soft and absorbant. I get request for them all the time and lately it's been from people who want to give them as gifts.


This is so weird, I think I just commented on your scrapbooking post.
