How to make a simple square baby bib
This is only a square with a pair of snaps.
It's too easy but I write here a little bit of tutorial. Please try it!
You need only a pattern of 10 inches square. This pattern includes 0.5 inches allowance.
And you need two pieces of fabrics as the pattern. It would be better if you have two different fabrics.
Then sew them together leaving an opening to turn it out. I sewed it with half back stitch to make it sturdy.
At a corner, I put a piece of cotton string (4 inches length).
Put it like the picture and sew it again and again.
Before turn it out, cut every corner in bias to make the corner sharp.
Turn it out and close the opening.
I hand stitched with Sashiko embroidery thread to decorate it.
Put a pair of snaps (or velcro) at the corner with the string and the opposing corner.
It's all! You can use it reversible.
And you can use it as a hanky too.
I made two of them and today sent them to my sister. These are for her second baby.
I also made a pair of slippers for her first girl, my little niece, with her favorite character.
These days I'm pretty good in the morning so I can sew for several hours.
I'm not so good in the evening but sewing time makes me happier than before (* v *).
Thank you very much for your comments. I like reading them to my Tomato.
