I made this bib for my sister in law expecting a baby in February. We had a shower for her about a month ago that I hope to do a post on soon :) She likes to use the word fool a good bit like "that fool just cut me off" for example. I knew she had seen this phrase on pinterest before too and liked it. My mom and I found this free bib pattern for a reversible bib and I found some soft white fleece in my fabric stash as well as some fun gender neutral red and yellow fabric in her stash. I went with the toddler size bib thinking that the baby wouldn't really be wearing a bib until around 6 months and a bigger size will get longer usage.
I wanted one side with the white fleece and one side with red. We cut out the fabric using the pattern and followed the instructions but instead of having the raw edge (which would have been fine if not using fleece for one side) I liked the idea of the bias tape going around in a coordinating yellow color and adding some color to the white side. The bias tape part was the trickiest piece and next time hand basting first would be a big help.
After it was finished, I created the words design in my Silhouette software and printed it out on red heat transfer vinyl and ironed it on.
She got a great laugh out of it when opening it at her shower! Can't wait to see my newest niece/nephew in it!
I highly recommend the bib pattern, it was very easy to use.
