Itsy Bitsy Dordable Baby Bibs


A little friend of mine had her first birthday recently. I had some fun making these little bibs for her.

Some Notes:

1. I love working with a warm color palette. Keeping it to just red, pink, orange, yellow always ends up with something that really makes me happy.  This project has just a soupcon of green – just enough I think.

2. I worked with fusible vinyl – I think a winner for baby bibs, but next time I won’t do a quilted piece underneath. It worked out fine, but would look crisper just with piecing.

3. I admit it. Bonnie and Camille fabrics are the cutest. I used up almost the last bit of a mini charm pack for the patchwork bib. Most of the rest of the charm pack was used in the bright hexagon baby blanket I made for this same little one.

4. I failed at making this apple bib from Patchwork, Please! about 10 months ago. I nailed it this time. I knew what adjustments to make and how to get the applique to work. win and win. It really is a sweet little pattern. I could make a lot more.

5. I stuck with the warm-colors-with splash-of-green theme and wrapped all of the goodness is some more of the colors. And an Eiffel Tower and French phrase for a little girl who I think will be speaking French someday.

    1. Thanks so much! I am actually working on burp cloths next for another friend who will have her baby soon.

      If you do tackle bibs, that iron-on vinyl was pretty easy to use.
