Messy Eater? Little Drooler?




No problem! I found this pattern in the book Bend the Rules Sewing by Amy Karol. It is a simple bib pattern that I used to make bibs for one special baby I know, for Christmas. I used my new fabrics again from Heather Bailey and Amy Butler. Not typical baby fabrics. Which I love. Plus this was the first time I ever used a snap tool to put the finishing touches on.
These are "Chic Bibs". Don't you agree?I am very much a fan of handmade gifts. Always have been. Now I have a way to try some new things and give gifts truly from the heart.
Now if only I could start a business doing what I love?!?

They are so fun! And I love using fabric that is not "typical baby" stuff. Great job Karen!

Karen, you asked about batting, etc. I didn't add any batting, but that would have been a grand idea. See how little I know about kids?! :) I don't think that the pattern calls for it, but it should have!

Sarah, not sure if you'll see this, but I was thinking about making the back a terry cloth towel next time. Absorbent and still use fun fabrics on the front! what do ya think?

I think that would be totally perfect! Nice and soft too! I like the idea of adding batting to the center for more absorbency, smarty pants!
