I NEEDED to do something, so I started digging through the dresser I keep my fabric and craft stuff in and I came out with an old towel and a t-shirt. So, I decided to whip up a bib! And not just any old bib, but a super bib.
And I'm gonna show you guys how to do one, too! Yay!!!
something terrycloth (cheap washcloth weight is probably best...learned that the hard way.)
plastic wrap (optional)
First we are going to sew up a bib real quick. Just trace a bib you have or use a pattern you found online, doesn't matter. I traced a bib I had.
You're going to cut out two bib pieces, one out of the terry and the other out of the t-shirt.
Pin together and sew leaving a gap to turn.
Turn right side out , press, then topstitch all the way around. I used contrasting thread because I
ran out of black wanted to.
Now here's a funny little fact. My machine hates me. Or it hates velcro. I can't decide.
At this point you want to sew your velcro on using that cute little "x in a box" stitching. My machine did this.
I'm buying some snaps.
Ok, now that you're done with the sewing part, it's on to the freezer paper stencil.
Find an image on Google. I used Batman, because he's awesome.
I like shortcuts so I cut my freezer paper to size to fit in my printer and print my image directly onto it, that way I don't have to trace it.
Cut your image out. The best knife I've found is the Xacto with the swivel blade. Takes curves like a dream.
Iron it onto your bib. Don't rush through this step. Make sure it's stuck on there really well or else it will bleed. Trust me.
Paint away. I used plastic wrap to give it a "distressed" look, but you can do whatever.
Let it dry and put it on a cute baby.
"Holy Roley Baby, Batman!"
Once I'm done being mad at my machine, I'll make a enough to outfit all the SuperFriends.
