Quick baby gift

A young couple we know has just had a first baby, an adorable little boy. :) I needed to whip up a quick baby gift, and Craftsy published this cute pattern for a bib. It was quite easy to make, though I did make one modification: I put a layer of vinyl in between the front and back layers so that liquids wouldn't soak through and get the baby or his clothes wet. Having the vinyl between the layers did, however, make the bib more difficult to turn right side out, but I think it will have been worth it. Oh, and I decided to make the owl slightly cross-eyed; he was cuter that way. ;)

Here's the back of the bib, with baseball-themed fabric for a baseball-oriented family. I had the fabric in my stash, and it seemed perfect for this! :)

  1. So cute! I just downloaded the pattern too. My younger son and his wife are expecting in late January, so I see lots of bib-making in my future!

  2. What an excellent idea and stunning reversible bib! This kind of bib is really perfect when you have a baby that drools a lot. This is a must try at home!

    1. Thanks, Rob! The only suggestion I'd make at this point is that, if you're going to add the vinyl layer between the two fabric layers, it might be easier to use bias binding instead of the suggested turned method. :)
