That post title is misleading. Baby Charwee isn’t a baby anymore. She’s 15 months old. And when I say bibs, I’m not talking tiny little cutesy baby spit up bibs. I’m talking big ol’ honking protect her shirt as she shovels food into her mouth at an alarming rate bibs.
I made four bibs out of flannel I had in my stash. I had found the heart fabric super cheap on JoAnn’s remnant rack. The hearts are all going different directions as I wanted to use up as much of this piece of fabric as I could.
The dot fabric was another previous find at JoAnn’s, but these were a fat quarter pack. One fat quarter is the perfect size for a bib! Each bib is reversible and just as pretty on the back as the front.
I’ve only ever sewn with cheap flannel from Joann’s and I’ve often wondered how the designer flannel differs. I plan on finding out someday, but bibs that get food smashed into them on a daily basis aren’t going to be the way. Cheap-o fabric will do just fine here. It’s probably not going to be too long before Baby Charwee rips off bibs and refuses to wear them anyway.
The reason I made four new bibs is I finally decided it was time to retire some of the old ones. Not only had they gone though my son who will be four this fall, but quite a few of them were hand-me downs to boot. And some? Well, they just weren’t appropriate for a girl.
My husband got a chuckle every time I put this bib on our daughter and insists we are keeping it because it’s funny. This bib was my nephews, who is going to be seven this month. Sorry honey, it’s time for it to GO.
I had another fat quarter pack of the flannel dots which I turned into a baby quilt for a friend. Here’s a sneak peek.
See ya later alligator! If I had comments enabled (here’s why I don’t) I would expect all of you to respond with “after while crocodile.”
