Bib ~ DIY
northwest arkansas photographer
Here is my first DIY project for February. It came about when I realized
that I didn't have enough bibs and couldn't find any I really liked out
shopping. I had some left over fabric remnants from making burp cloths
for Owen and all I had to buy was the plush cloth for the backing and
Sorry for not documenting this, I finished them before realizing I could
blog the process. I copied the pattern from a bib I already had. So, these
are all after shots and they have even been washed and warn several times
I recommend getting fabric with lots of pattern and colors to hide all the
stains they will surely get. I'm finding that carrot stains pretty bad, next
to banana which is the absolute worst! I got the dot plush at Hobby
Lobby on sale, I think I spent $3 and got 1/3 yard of each white and
I overlocked the edges because I couldn't be bothered to stitch, then top-
stitch the edges. I knew this way would be the fastest and easiest. Then
I just topstitched the velcro or hook and loop tape to back of the bib.
Next time I'll get the flat version. The regular velcro/hook and loop gets
caught on the overlock stitching, so I have to be sure an connect them
before the go into the wash.
Hope you like!
