Oooohhh...I think I figured it out!

At first I thought she took a prefold and took it apart like described above.

But if you read the description and dimensions (when finished it is smaller than a basic prefold), it seems like she took her prefold, layed it flat, took the fabric and matched up the edge of the fabric to the edge of the prefold (right sides together) and sewed. Then match the other fabric edge to the other prefold edge (still right sides together) and sew. Now turn the whole thing (both ends are left open). Center the fabric strip down the middle - this will cause the sides of the burp cloth prefold to fold over on themselves. Sew trim on each end. I would make the center decorative fabric strip slightly shorter than the perfold so you don't have to worry about the edges sticking out, the trim (ribbon) will cover the edge.

Yes it is. You can buy the Gerber one in a package from Target or Walmart.

So then are the sides just pressed to make the neat edge? and wouldn't it separate when you washed it?

It should stay since you have each end sewn down.

but she has white showing on the sides--if you turn it right sides together and sew the too sides that are down the middle--when you pull it through the opening at either bottom--there wont be any white showing on the sides.

If the fabric strip is not as wide as the burp cloth, when you turn it right sides out, the pieces that the pp said will fold over on themselves will be the white sides. You have to center the fabric strip between the white borders before pressing and adding trim.

i guess i need to try it--i took a burp rag and pinned some material to it and pull it thru and all i had left showing was the fabric on top w/ a white back. no white sides. i covered the entire part that was double layered. would you cover more than that?
