More baby bibs

In my New Year sewing room tidy-up, I found a piece of towelling and two baby bibs cut out in a drawer. I decided to finish them and use up all the towelling. The result was four more sets of baby bibs and burp cloths.

As before, I used the Sew4Home baby bib pattern and narrow ready-made bias binding.

The bibs are all a generous size.

Everything is backed with white towelling.

I managed to make the binding sit flatter this time. Practice! I had both 100 per cent cotton binding and poly-cotton blend in my stash. The pure cotton binding (red) was much softer and nicer to use, and I will try to buy only that in future.

The burp cloths vary in size depending on either the fabric remnant I was using or, as I got close to using up all the towelling, how much towelling I had left.

I still love my Kamsnaps snaps.

I have snaps in every colour except pink.

One set has already been given to a dog-park friend. The others are ready for when another baby arrives.

All the towelling is now gone and I have one less UFO and well-intentioned craft supply lurking in the back of the drawers or the Cupboard of Shame. Hurrah!

  1. Now, the question is, do you lack pink snaps because you’ve used them all already, or was the pack of snaps missing this all important colour? Cute bibs, I’d probably use no. 1 myself, especially if eating pasta wearing a white shirt…

  2. I did the same thing – I reorganized and ran across two sew together bag parts. One had been halfway put together and I just stopped. Who knows why. I’d made several in the past so it wasn’t that I was stuck. I took them to a sew day and finished both up! Feels good, doesn’t it?

    • Definitely bias binding, Yvonne. There is no way anyone can bind curves like those on the bibs with straight-grain binding. I rarely even use straight-grain binding on my quilts – except when I have just enough in the perfect colour to do a mini quilt, but it happens to be a long, narrow WOF remnant, as happened this week. 😊
