Next in the seasonal baby bib series, I created some quick Easter and Spring designs.
As I mentioned in the Valentine's post, if you don’t have a baby to sew for, these silhouettes can be used for a multitude of other projects! They would be cute on a t-shirt too!
To make your own Spring or Easter baby bib, you will need:
- The Pattern
- a couple of large scraps of fabric
- a couple of small scraps of fabric (for the appliques)
- matching thread
- freezer paper (optional – If you have never used freezer paper before, check out my freezer paper tips!)
- Heat N Bond Lite
- sewing machine
How to sew a Spring / Easter baby bib
[Note: for more photos of each of the steps, check out the Christmas bib tutorial too!]
- Cut two of the baby bib (mirrored). Note: seam allowance is not included in the pattern. Cut around the pattern, including your desired seam allowance. I used about 1/4 inch.
- Choose your applique and your desired fabric You will choose either the bunny or the flower. Cut directly on the line. Do not include a seam allowance, as the design will be appliqued on. Trace the design to your Heat N Bond (or freezer paper) and apply to the reverse of the fabric. Cut out around the pattern you drew.
- Remove paper backing from the Heat N Bond and iron it to the front of the bib, using the included instructions. If using freezer paper, remove the paper and either apply a fabric adhesive or not, you decide.
- Applique the silhouette (I hand-sewed a blanket stitch around the edges of mine but you can also use your machine for this step.)
- With right sides together, sew around the edges of the bib, leaving a small gap on one side to turn.
- Clip the fabric along the curves (Be careful not to clip through the seam.)
- Turn rightside and press.
- Topstitch all the way around the bib, making sure to complete the seam where you turned the bib.
- Install the snap (I used snaps for my bibs because I had them on hand but you could also sew velcro onto the bib to use as a closure instead.)
Like I mentioned above, the silhouettes can be used for a variety of projects. I would love to see what you make from them. Come by and share your projects on the Felt With Love Designs Facebook page or tag me on Instagram (@feltwithlovedesigns)!
