20-11HM: Babies, Moms & Grans – Bibs!
With a new baby in the family (and more than a little fabric left from piecing Bailey’s quilt) I really couldn’t do anything but pick “Babies, Moms & Grans” as my 20-Eleven Homemade Months theme for January. I had a completely different project planned (and cut out) for today’s post, but then we celebrated my niece’s 3rd birthday yesterday, and I decided to start here instead:
Bibs! Between my niece, and her 1-year-old (teething) baby brother, bibs are getting lots of use. My brother shared that they had stacks our aunt made for each baby, and they were favorites.
For the bibs I made last night, I used the pattern for the “B” version found here, with the following modifications: I omitted the pocket from the front. I rounded the top right tab to make room for hook and loop rather than the snap, and instead of using bias tape around the perimeter stitched right sides together. I left an opening at the bottom to turn through, pressed and then topstitched close to the edges.
I used cotton for both sides of these two. Do you have a favorite bib pattern? What about fabric – cotton, flannel, terry? I’d love to hear!
