Bibs!

Our second project for the Curves class I am participating in (see Scallop Bunting post) was bibs.  I've been determined these first few projects to use materials I already had on hand.  The bibs were to be made out of flannel and as I dug through my flannel stash I realized it's all red, white, blue or Christmas.  :)  Not much variety...  And much of the red, white, blue toned flannels are already cut into squares for rag quilts and OF COURSE the squares are not big enough for the bib pattern.


Oh well!  I made due and managed to make two cute little bibs.  Rachel from Stitched in Color does some great tutorials for the class projects.  I'm excited to see what's to come in the next few weeks.
These bibs are definitely too small for my 20 month old (they're more for 0-6 months), so I plan on making a larger pattern out of a bib we already have and making a few for my little girl.  We could use some that cover more than 4 inches of her torso which is what most of her bibs seem to be accomplishing these days...  I know plenty of people having babies these days so I'm sure I'll find a home for these two.
But again, this was a fast, fulfilling project.  So nice!  Two quick projects in a row!  I did run into some trouble putting the snaps on.  I've never put snaps on, and I buggered up a bunch of the prong pieces trying to make it work.  Sheesh...I guess my blog isn't called Third Time's a Charm for nothing!  (As far as the snaps were concerned it was more like the 10th Time's a Charm.)

  8. Cute! I just made some bibs for my son- he's teething (ie: drooling ALL the time!) so I put a washcloth inside them to absorb more drool! Thanks for linking up!
