Do You Sew?
I bet you are wondering just that. Where are the sewing projects, ideas etc! Well I have finally finished a small sewing project for next weekend. I wanted to have a super simple beginner project to demo at Lakewood, so I went searching for a free bib pattern. I found a great one with a down loadable PDF at Chickpea Studio. I made my bib reversible with 2 pieces of Amy Schimler fabric. It might be more absorbant with a plain flannel on the back but I love the fabric too much to use plain. The bib is a cute size for an infant up to one year, more of a drool bib.
Chickpea also has a burp cloth tutorial that I peeked at but I decided to make mine a bit easier. I just cut down the rest of my fat quarter (after making the bib) into a rectangle then cut a piece of matching towel (one is a new diaper). Sew right sides together, turn and top stitch. This makes a cute gift that I managed to eek out in less than an hour.
