On to the BIB…..
Wow, it’s been baby central around here lately. Lots and lots of baby items. Here’s one more for you all. I know there is always a baby shower to go to…….so these tutorials might come in handy for you. Or maybe you have a drooler that always wears a bib.
(This totally depends on what size bib you’d like to make)
- Scrap pieces of fabric
- Larger piece of fabric for backing
- Thin quilt batting
- Sewing Machine
***If you don’t want to trace or you don’t have a bib to trace around, I found a great bib pattern/tutorial online that you could use HERE. I’m not sure how big it is or how easy the instructions are because I just wanted to hurry and measure off of a bib that I knew fit my little guy. So I just traced. It’s up to you though. Both ways will work great, I’m sure.***
Okay, getting back to work……..
Then I cut out my paper pattern and laid it down next to some scrap pieces that I kind of fit together and trimmed and made sure that they would be big enough, including 1/4 inch seam allowances. Then sew them together. This is where you can get really creative and abstract. Try making just stripes, maybe all squares, maybe just one strip along the bottom, or how about all sorts of shapes……might be fun to experiment with. And if you do……send me a picture. I would love to see what all of your creative minds come up with.
Now, sew around the entire bib, close to the edge. Then, attach some velcro to the 2 end pieces and add buttons to the front. The buttons are totally optional and impractical really. But they sure add a fun little touch to the bib.
