Hanmade baby bibs
This is a great project to make. Its easy and you make great results. Using scrap pieces of fabric to make these lovely baby bibs.
I made these 3 bibs as a gift for a baby shower I was going to. I hope you like!
My chosen fabric
I made my own template so that I could make as many as I wanted to.
Trace around the template onto the fabric. Making sure the fabric is turned right sides together.
Then sew onto the drawn line. You are sewing the 2 pieces of fabric together. Make sure you don't complete it, leave about 6 inches open.
Then cut around your stitches leaving a small lip where you haven'y sewn. Turn the fabric inside out (using your unsewn gap)
Looking good so far! Press it with an iron. I added a small sewn label onto one side.
Then stitch around the edge of the fabric, this finishes it off nicely and sews the gap that was left open.
Add a small velcro strip to the top. Pin in place and sew.
I think it looks great. I then made a few more.
I hope you enjoy making these. Let me know how you get on!
