Back in November, my niece had a baby shower, and just about two weeks ago, she finally had her sweet baby! It’s crazy to know I am a great aunt (i’m only 32!), but I am beyond excited for her, and can’t wait until February when we will be visiting her and her family. So today’s post is part of her shower gift: bibs! You will need:
- 2 types of fabric
- Coordinating thread
- A sewing machine
- Fusible web (optional)
At first I wasn’t sure about the size of the bibs when I printed out the template. It just seemed so small. And, I was going to make it smaller once I considered the seam allowances that would be used. Though many of my friends have children, ever since I moved it has been a while since I’ve been around a baby. I took it up with my husband; he’s a nurse and sees more babies than I do. We decided the best course of action was to actually make a bib and see what we thought when it was done. So I whipped up a bib and we agreed-this actually is appropriate for a young baby!
As for the project itself, it was super simple. The directions were straightforward, and I never ran across anything that I didn’t understand. I used lightweight fleece for my bibs and found that I could get several bibs from one piece of fabric. I also decided to add a little extra touch to mine to make them a little more unique, so I used the fusible webbing to add the accent details to the front of each bib.
I wasn’t able to attend the shower (it involved a plane ride), but by all accounts, my niece liked my gift. Her little boy is still a bit young to actually use the bibs, but I can ‘t wait to see the pictures once he is ready!
