These are for a friend who is having a baby shower, I will probably make about 2 more. I won't be able to go but I hope she really likes my gift.
|Cute Huh!! I used denim for the fronts and cotton for the backs.|
|After taking about an hour to sketch 3 different bib styles. I decided on the classic neck tie bib, as the first one to be sewn. I didn't want to deal with sewing neck holes, Velcro, or button snaps just yet! I wanted it to be easy.|
|I traced out my pattern with a 1/4 seam allowance and cut it out.|
|I ironed out my fabric for the front strip, the back and the neck tie.|
|I cut out the strip size I wanted and also the back part.|
|I stitched a zig-zag on the edge of the strip and added decorative stitching to the top and bottom. |
Then sewed the two pieces together (right sides together), leaving a 2 inch opening at the bottom .
|After flipping it to the right side out, I pressed it and then stitched around it. Then I pinned the the neck tie on.|
|Yay, I'm almost done!! After pinning, sewed the tie all the way across.|
