I've started blogging again and as part of my New Years resolution I'm going to blog everyday for the next year and I'm going to make and review a tutorial from another blogger once a week and I found this wonderful idea for a bib and wanted to make it especially as I seem to know a few new mums and mums to be.
A pretty girlie monster bib.
Now where do you find the tutorial to make your very own monster bib, well pop over to
stubbornly crafty blog and make up a little batch of bibs for your monster.
Now I said I'd review the tutorial well it is great and easy to follow, with a great tip for
WonderUnder also known as Bondaweb or fusible web.
The measures are great if your use to inches which I'm not so I had to change the size to cm
12in = 30.5cm
10.5in = 26.5cm
4in = 10.5cm
and for the seams I used the edge of my standard sewing foot which is just over the 1/4in (0.7cm)
and it worked fine.
For the fabrics I used 100% cotton for the main part of the bib, fleece for the back (no batting as I didn't have any) and felt for the teeth and eyes.
I didn't cut notches as I used my pinking shears instead for all the curves.
I enjoyed making this fun bib and will like to make more.
I think the only thing that would of helped with this tutorial is maybe a guide for Velcro or snaps placement, but this is only a minor thing.
Overall it took about an hour to make.
