Project

The easiest Bib ever!!!

What are you most proud of? I am so proud that this was my first sewn Bib and it turned out so nice. The shape is very nice and it can grow with the infant to toddler with the adjustable snaps. What advice would you give someone starting this project? You can stitch the bib as I have without binding and it is very easy for a new sewist. I just added 1/4 for a seam edge all the way around or you can put it together with matching edge bias binding as pattern directions, very nice shape for child, could be made with or without crumb catcher so many possibilities.

Q&A with Evelyn Brock Horsley

I really like this one! Are you offering the pattern? I'm not familiar with the neck size for a little one so would appreciate some guidance.
Evelyn Brock Horsley answered:
This is not my pattern. This is a free pattern by Yuzu and Pear. I downloaded it for Free. I did not use the catcher tray in for my bib project of Santa Clause Embroidery. I really looked and looked for a good bib pattern and this one was the best one I ever found!!! I really like it very much, as far as I know it is still free, you just down load it and print it at 100% from your printer and tape it together. It will print in two pieces. I really liked the neck size you can use KAM snaps and make it adjustable or you could even use velcro. I did assemble mine a little different than the original pattern. I stitched mine together and turned it leaving a turning hole and then hand stitching it closed. Either way is great. Just make sure to adjust your seam allowance if you are turning it that way and not applying bias tape. I also quilted my top layer with cotton quilt batting. You can also use a PUL fabric (found in the diaper making section at Joann's) to make it water proof, to the back. Hope this helps The bib would be great for a baby to a toddler age depending on size and weight. Probably not new born but they grow so fast I'm sure this size would be better I would think..
