* Quilted baby bibs

Posted on April 26th, 2007 by becket. Filed under Sewing/Fabric Crafts.


Hi – Becket here again. I’m expecting a baby soon (due in August) and so it’s been a good excuse to make cute baby stuff (keep a lookout for future posts – I have a few projects that I’m wrapping up). Since I’ve been on a quilting binge lately, I thought some quilted baby bibs would be cute. I’ve seen several examples of quilted bibs lately that have served as great inspiration. I placed bright contrasting fabrics on the back, so they are reversible. Maitreya and I put a pearl no-sew snap on the pink/green one. We needed a hammer to do this and there were quite a few layers to go through so it took quite a bit of strength to get it through. For the blue one, I just sewed on a snap. There is a layer of quilting batting in the middle which has been needlepunched so it won’t shrink or change shape in the wash. One last thing? I need to scotchguard them before they are used!!

    They are so beautiful, I wouldn´t dare to use them (argh – those darn tomato stains…)

    Congrats on the baby! I guess I must have missed the announcement. I love the bibs and the fabric. I have several of those but I haven’t made anything with them yet because I can’t bare to cut them.

    I like your bibs. I have made some extremely similar for my baby and they are the best…although I didn’t needlepunch the batting, so mine shrunk up, but they keep getting better with age. Unlike all the other bibs I have.

    Love your patchwork!

    so cute! these look awesome.

    and don’t scotch guard- they will wash and dry just fine-scotch guard is actually not very healthy at all to have around people/pets, especially babies and food-if you know what I mean. . .

    I have seen that green dot print on so many blogs! Do you know who makes it? I know it also comes in blues and reds.
