Here are the baby bibs I made out of recycled jeans (see tutorial link in my previous post!) These were SUPER easy and fun to make...The baby I made these for has a Snoopy themed nursery, and when I saw this Snoopy flannel I couldn't resist. I originally planned to use it just for a taggy blanket (pic below), but stumbled upon the bib tutorial and realized I had enough leftover for them. I loved the whole "design" process and it was fun to pick out the ribbon, etc and do the appliques.
In a nutshell- I just decorated/sewed the fronts, used the printed flannel for the back, added velcro closures, sewed right side together (left space to turn), and used a decorative topstitch to close the hole! FUN, and too cute if I do say so myself!!! :) See tutorial posted in earlier link for more details and the bib pattern (FREE!)
Here is the taggy blanket! Together I think this makes a CUTE and FUN gift! :) I love giving handmade things, and wish I always had time to do so...it's a goal though!
I LOVE making things for babies and new moms....I didn't sew when I had Kara, but hopefully can have a BLAST when it's time for #2...tick, tick, tick....;)
Thanks for reading! :)
