Hoo's Who

Poor Rosa was in desperate need of a new bib! I'd made her several about a year ago while I was drafting and tweaking my pattern, but they've been growing snug (and short!) for quite a while now. Owl fabric to the rescue!

This was the fabric that I originally purchased for the table and chairs that I recovered -- the "wrong blue" fabric. I kept it anyway, because I liked the print and it doesn't hurt to have a gender neutral baby fabric on hand. 

All I had to do was find a coordinating yellow print for the reverse (I love reversible!), and I was set. This bib is really a kind of smock, and is quite easy to put together. I used flannel for the interlining and white cotton for the bias trim. 

Velcro is easier to put on, but I had to go with a snap because it wears so much better in the wash. Besides, Rosa can't put these on by herself, so I'd have to fasten it for her, anyway. I originally bought my snap press and snaps at JoAnn's to convert velcro cloth diapers to snaps, but I'm loving them for so many applications! Maybe because they're so easy? Yes, that could definitely have an influence on my preference...

I think one more bib will set us up nicely -- now to come up with ideas for that one!


  1. I was just wondering if you had some kind of a pattern for this? I would love to make it for personal use.

    1. Grace,

      I do have a pattern I've been working on -- I'll see if I can get it up on the blog in the near future!



I'd love to hear your thoughts! Thank you so much for stopping by!
