A Lovely Little needed more bibs. (Can you ever have too many?)  They are so expensive!  Got this material as a remnant at JoAnn's for $2.36.  It made Three 2-layer flannel bibs.  Boy, was it cute fabric!!

Used my favorite bib as a pattern.  Folded the flannel wrong sides together and cut it out simultaneously!  Next I used different colored thread from my stash to embellish and hold the middle together.  Used matching thread (also stash) to serge the edges.  Add a sew on snap (you guessed it, stash) and I was done.  They took about 45 minutes.  Quicker than washing bibs!!

That quick little project helped me over my frustration with my quilt, and I got started on the last of these.  (Are you getting sick of seeing these yet?)
EDIT:  I am posting this as my Friday finish, be sure to click on the Sew & Tell Friday button on the side bar and visit all the other wonderful links.  If you are visiting, please check out today's post (the quilt's not done, yet...)


  1. certainly like you talking about the bibs rather than the other things I know you're working on! lol

    not sick of seeing it yet...just wishing you and I could have a day of just us, our machines and about 24 hrs of awake and coherent time!

  2. Cute! I like your decorative stitching. I need to use mine more. It really adds a lot.

  3. I also forget about the decorative stitching on my machine - yours really makes those little bibs look sharp! Nice job!

  4. LOVE your bibs! and the stitching. I have been wanting to make some patchwork bibs lately, thank you for the inspiration!

  5. love the bibs! Thanks for sharing - I need to make a few bibs for a friend...

  6. Nice--now I'll have to figure out what else you're working on!

  7. Really lovely bibs!!! Cute fabric you were able to purchase as a bargain and love that everything else came from your stash. Thanks for sharing.

  8. So cute! Quick and inexpensive, too. Can't beat that! I would dearly LoVe to have a serger for just this type of project. (Would make my flannel pj pants go a whole lot quicker!) Bet you love yours! :o)


I love to hear your thoughts, and I try to respond. Thanks for sharing your time and encouragement!
