- Kathy’s free planes, trains and automobiles printable template (PDF, 136K)
- White cloth diapers for your burp cloth base
- Blue fabric
- Fusible interfacing
- Orange thread
- Paper scissors
- Good fabric scissors
- Sewing machine
First print and cut out my free planes, trains and automobiles template.
Cut a piece of fusible interfacing slightly larger than the cut shape and iron to the wrong side of your blue fabric.
Put the shape face down on top of the interfacing and trace with a pen.
Cut out your shape using good fabric scissors.
Fold the diaper in half. Center your shape about 2-3 inches from the cloth bottom.
Using a tight zigzag stitch, sew around your shape. Remember to backstitch. Repeat for the all three shapes.
