Alright, it’s officially less than a month till Easter.  Which means I have a lot of crafting on my hands.  Along with a bridal shower and bachelorette party I’ve been planning for a friend in the next coming months, I’ve got to much to do and not enough time to do it.

The last couple of years I have decided to make something for my nieces and nephews for Easter, rather than do the whole basket thing.  Mainly because some of them are getting older and frankly there are just way to many of them to be making every single one their own basket.  Usually the ones that are mostly all around the same age I make the same thing, but some are now teenagers and then of course we have the really little ones.

For the youngest who is only a few months old I decided to make a couple bibs.  I found some cute Dr. Seuss fabric over at the quilt shop which I thought would be perfect, not only for his gift, but for another I will hopefully finish up soon and post later.

You can find tons of free bib patterns online and honestly I cannot find the one I used for these bibs, but I have used this one in the past as well.  Its really all a matter of preference to the shape you like.

First cut out your pattern pieces.  I always make one side flannel because its much more absorbent than plain cotton.DSCN0508

Then right sides together sew all around the bib leaving a 2-3 inch opening to turn.

Trim corners, then turn the bib right side out and press.  Tuck in the open seam and pin shut.  Topstitch around the whole bib.  DSCN0513Add either Velcro or a grommet snap and your done.
