Fabric for burp cloths and bibs? SaraBelle 2 kids; 1 angel baby; Bentonville, AR, United States 1880 posts

When I was pregnant with DS one of my husband's family friends made me these adorable burp cloths and bibs. I am really wanting to make as much as I can for this baby, but I am stuck on the fabric she used for these burp cloths and bibs, and unfortunately she passed away last year so I can't ask her. I tried looking up handmade burp cloths on Etsy and people just say cotton, but it feels thicker and softer than a regular cotton fabric. Does anyone know if it is maybe a certain kind of cotton or what fabric it is?

Probably flannel. That's what I used for ours anyway.

I'm using flannel for mine. And backing them with terry cloth.
