Baby bib

One of my colleagues became auntie last week. It’s the first baby in the family so she was veeery happy. We thought that a home-made Lola bib would be the perfect present for little Fons.

I looked on Pinterest for a pattern I liked, you can find it on this board. Since I had too many ideas for the design, I thought it would be nice to make a two-sided bib.

The whale had many little corners so I merely used the handwheel to stitch it on the bib. I stitched the Velcro in the top left hand corner. Make sure you stitch it firmly as it will be pulled a lot.

I first stitched the hourglass-shaped part, leaving the sides open. Then, I stitched the middle part on top of it. Don’t stitch the bow tie too close to the border (like I did, oops!) or it will overlap with the bias. Here too you need to stitch the Velcro in the top left hand corner. Finally, I stitched the two layers together with the help of a bias binder foot.

Next week my colleague will visit the little man. I hope the bib will fit. Photos will follow…
