Before our next visit with our new granddaughter I made some bandana bibs. These are the "in thing" at the moment. Well, have you seen the price of them. A friend of mine has recently had a granddaughter too and she has made these. She gave me her pattern. They went together so easy. I have just had my over locker serviced after it has sat in the cupboard for 10 years with not being used. So what better task to give it a good workout.
The best thing is I searched my stash and didn't need to buy anything. BONUS....
I found this fabric, used a scrap of wadding and found a piece of flannelette for the back...
Cute fabric, basted with the template drawn on in frixion pen...
 Then I got to the sewing. Within an hour and a half I had 9 bibs completed. Basted, pattern drawn, overlooked and Velcro stitched on... Well worth it. These will become a basic item for any baby gifts I give in the future. They were super easy...... I reversed some so they weren't all the same pattern...
With the wadding in them hopefully they will absorb a little more dribble.
Cute bandana bibs
I will see what the DIL thinks of them before I make more in case I need to make some alterations.
I used Velcro dots for the fasteners and I am not sure that they will be good enough. Time will tell..

But look at these gorgeous guys.

  9. Great photos! From the looks on their faces, Madeline won't be able to date till she's 30. The bibs are fun. What a great way to use up a few left overs and make a nice gift in the process.
