Can you ever have too many bibs? Well, maybe only when it's laundry day but otherwise, I know I like have drawers full of them (spreads out the laundry days...) Reading around blog world - I ended up on Homemade by Jill - and if you haven't checked her out - go do it and come back...please. :) As fate would have it - the top tutorial (thankyou alphabetical order) was her bib tutorial. Easy cheesey.
My sewing table happens to line up directly with my bin of "cute" (read - not in daily use) dishtowels. And in that stack was KMart's Martha Stewart fruit set that I coveted for months until I finally gave in and paid way too much for them. They're towels. And they get dirty. But I love them. Which is also why they are in a bin and not under my sink....moving on. In the name of things I have actually getting used - I thought they would make ADORABLE bibs. Kids eat fruit - makes sense.
So I printed out the template, cut the towel while it was doubled over, sewed it inside out, flipped right side out, topstitched, added a snap (because I don't have white velcro handy and I'm trying to keep myself out of fabric stores this month), and voila. I'm in love. I can't wait to cut into the rest of the set.
This would be adorable with any cutesy set of dishtowels - and I may not be allowing myself in the fabric store but I'm pretty sure the dollar store is not necessarily off limits...just saying. Or Target's dollar section might also get a visit shortly. Plus, with all the scraps of fabric I have - maybe I should just pick up a bundle of washclothes and go to town. The possibilites are endless!! And these would make such a cute gift paired with a burp cloth!! And be sure to check out the rest of that blog too - it's AWESOME!!
