I don't know of a site Vickki but some of the ones my daughter received that she liked the best were just regular cloth diapers -the ones that were rectangular with a padded middle and some decorative fabric down the middle of one side. The diaper material absorbs much better than flannel we've found and the cotton on the one side makes it pretty.

I'm betting if you google burp pads you'll come up with several free sites.

You can also make one like Lynn said out of a prefolded cloth diaper Fold it in half and then turn it inside out and put the seam down the middle of the back. I then sew up the ends by putting lace or decorative stitches along the bottom and top of the pad. If you have an embroidery machine you can do an embroidery on it before sewing it up the middle. they are very absorbent.
I'm regressing back into my youth, I just have to figure out how I'm going to convience my body to come along with me.

Made burp clothes for GS. Used terry cloth. Cut them 12 inches by 24 inches. Cut out teddy bears and pooh bears from material and appliqued them on just to jazz them up. Looked quite cute and my DIL liked them. jessie s

I was just playing around today not looking for anything when I found this site. Free patterns and I noticed they had one for burp cloths.

I pretty much made my own patterns in different shapes but always narrower in the middle for over the shoulder by the neck. Mine have all been out of flannel to match blankets that I made with them.
