OPTION 2: WITHOUT BIAS BINDING BEGINNER FRIENDLY BABY BIB
I wanted to quickly update about the baby bib tutorial, since it can be a bit challenging to handle all of those layers together, so here is how we can make quick and easy baby bib faster than with using bias binding.
You will need to gather your towelling, your main fabric and a bit of Velcro or a (couple of) snaps, plus the free PDF pattern that you can download by signing up as a member here: https://www.seweasypeasy.com/members
Sew one bit of Velcro to each upper side, one on the towel the other on the main, then put them right side together with the Velcro being on each side, like shown on he picture below:
Then sew it all together using a 1/4 inch seam allowance, make sure you leave a couple inches left non-sewn together like so
Clip and notch, press
Turn right side out through the bottom bit still not sewn together, and press. Make sure you press the bottom seam allowance within the bib, like shown on the picture below:
Then you can either slip stitch, or if you're not confident with hand-stitching just use a zigzag stitch all the way around your bib and make sure you close the raw edges at the bottom. Ta-dah! You have made a gorgeous bib, it will be the perfect present for a baby shower or a young mother, or just for your stash, you never have too many of those!
