I found something my daughter-in-law likes.
I can make these AGAIN and AGAIN...
and she'll use them
AGAIN AND AGAIN.
I first made a couple...
and have been making...
every so often.
Everytime I see my Little Granddaughter...
she has one on!
Makes THIS grandma Happy. Happy.
I begin with this homemade pattern....
Drawn hastily onto a piece of paper.
Bibs are NOT an exact science. ;)
I lay that pattern down onto
Two pieces of flannel.
right sides together.
and cut the bib out.
Decorate the front of the bib.
Sew the rick rack or ribbon on.
I also used cotton fabric from my stash to
add interest on the first two bibs shown above.
I made the ties by cutting cotton fabric
1 1/2" wide, 15" long
folding the raw edges in
Lay the ties on top.
Put the back of bib right side down....
and sew the front and back together.....
Make sure you don't sew over the ties
that are inside. ;)
(You should also TRIM the seam around the neck
before turning it right side out.)
Leave an opening.
A VERY important step!!!
Turn RIGHT side out.
Top stitch around the edge.
I see many more bibs in MY future.
