I began by using a store-bought bib to make a cardstock pattern. I simply traced it onto cardstock and then cut it out.
I chose yellow and white seersucker as the fabric for the main part. I pinned my paper pattern to the fabric and cut it out.
I had a barely used hand towel at the bottom of our linen closet that could be used for the backing. It was freshly washed and just waiting to be made into a bib.
I pinned my paper pattern onto the towel and cut out another of the shape for the back.
Next, I made a square pattern out of paper about 3 1/4” x 3 1/4” size. I chose two other fabrics in party colors and cut out the squares.
I then laid the squares with wrong sides together. I made cuts about 2/3 of the way down diagonally at each corner.
The next step was to sew around all the edges in my square including the cut ones to hold the fabric pieces together. Now it was time to sew the square onto the front bib fabric. I pinned it into place first.
I then sewed an X in the middle of the pinwheel to keep it securely on the bib.
Now that my project is complete, I am lovin’ it but still hatin’ the fact that my baby is turning one.
