My friend Jen came in town last week and had me sewing all day…in return she rearranged my furniture. She has an amazing eye for that stuff. She brought this cute little apron that she used for a bib for her daughter Morgen. She wanted to know if I could copy the pattern and make her a few more. I was unimpressed with the design and knew it could offer more. So I started tweaking and cutting and adding and came up with this design. I call it a Bibpron. It is a big kid’s bib. Isaac says that babies wear bibs but I can put this bibpron on him and he is fine. Say goodbye to spot treating and juice stains. Hellllllo Bibpron.
1. Download this pattern. You can print out one of both of the pieces and tape it together according to the pattern directions.
2. Cut out two pieces of fabric with the printed out pattern. I cut out one patterned fabric and then a piece of broadcloth.
6. Get a pin and 2 yards of twill tape or ribbon and weave the twill tape through. Tie knots at the end so that the twill tape will not slide through. I also take a lighter to the ends so they won’t fray.
Sweet…you are done. I love the adjustable neck. It also could be reversible. I think it is cute either way. It is way better than a normal apron and waaay cooler than a bib…it’s a bibpron. They are a must have for toddlers!
And just for kicks and giggles…let’s have a giveaway. I will give away a bibpron to two lucky winners. Because I hate a long, drawn out giveaway I will pick a winner when I wake up tomorrow.
Do you like how I say the giveaway at the end so you have to read this whole thing to see it? Hee hee…I am slick like that.
Here is my big boy posing for you…
Also if you are interested I will sell them. One for $7 or two for $12. Let me know if you are interested. I think I may actually open an Etsy shop because of all my sweet friends’ encouragement who like to make me make things for them. We’ll see…
You can also scale down the pattern to fit a smaller child. I would say this pattern would be good for 2+ age child.
