Baby Bib Gift

There are some brill tutorials and templates out there for making bibs for babies... like here and here. I tweeked the sizing a little bit to make mine a tad longer than the patterns.

I've used a teal blue dotty fabric and glittery white towel for the back piece, seeing as the gender of the baby this is for is unknown it made life much harder picking fabrics, what exactly counts as neutral nowadays? So with that in mind I hand drew a teddy on some felt, pieced, layered and then hand sew it onto the bib, everyone loves teddies right? I've used a small metal snap as the closure for the bib, just to make sure it's secure when being worn.
Now I just got to hope that my friends like it when I give it to them. If they do then I may just have to whip up more for other friends who are expecting soon!


Ok so now I have entered the bib into Better Life Bags Pinterest Challenge on Facebook and I need as many people as possible to like my baby bib in order to win a Better Life Bag. Please go like Better Life Bags on Facebook here and then like my photo here. Pretty pretty please with loads of cherries on top!
