Looking for a simple baby shower gift to sew up? How about some baby bibs. For these bibs, Brooke used my Slicker fabric (laminated cotton) for the front and chenille for the back. It’s so soft and comfy with the chenille on the back. The Slicker fabric makes for easy clean-up. To make your own bib, below are some tutorials for you to check out. We used Heather’s Bailey’s tutorial for the smaller bibs and drew out a larger bib template for the toddler size. See below for Brooke’s additional tips. It was super easy and took less than 45 minutes.
Brooke’s tips: I cut the pattern out of just the laminate. Then lay the laminate bib piece, right sides together over a larger piece of chenille. Then using my walking foot, sew 1/4 inch seam, leaving an opening. Then I cut both the chenille and laminate to reduce bulk and make turning right side out easier. When top-stitching the bibs, I used a Teflon foot. After the bib is finished, I tossed them in a warm water wash and then into the dryer.
