baby bibs

A fun sewing project that uses up scraps... perfect! Plus, Morgan really needed some pretty bibs. Dressing her in all of those darling girl clothes is less fun when she is wearing a stained car bib that says "zoom zoom" on it. 

I used this tutorial I found at Zaaberry. The tutorial is very well written, and these bibs are super easy to make!

I loved revisiting some of these fabrics, especially the two prints used in the bib on the left - one from Amy Butler's Midwestern Modern line and another print I found at a cool fabric shop in Wallingford that unfortunately closed up.

And there are those birds again!

The best part about this tutorial is that you just use a bib that you already like as your pattern, trace or pin it onto your fabric pieces (wrong sides together), sew with a gap for turning, THEN cut out the bib. Love that. No matching up the two pieces.

Here's the world's cutest bib model at 3.5 months old.

Now she has something to keep her top dry with and to clip her pacifier to!
