I think I've downloaded every free bib out there by now. This one creates a pocket for catching crumbs that unsnaps for emptying and washing.
The bottom gets turned up, folded to the back, and snapped.
It's an easy pattern. I think the hardest part was thinking through the snap part to be sure I was putting them on right. My resident dragon agreed to serve as model here.
The pocket has the advantage of popping open a bit to really catch all those little crumbs which is more obvious in the photo below.
I'd love to tell you where the embroidery design came from, but my sieve-like memory fails me here. Just Google it! Since I did not pay for the pattern, I went searching for that link which is right here. I sooooo appreciate it when people share their patterns. That link takes you to the maker's tutorial which includes a link to get the free pattern on Craftsy.
The maker used laminated fabrics which is a great idea. For my first try, though, I went with cotton and flannel. Laminated fabrics are freakin' expensive, and I am not experimenting on my tiny, costly stash of them. Next time, though, I'll try the laminates....maybe. I have a really hard to actually cutting into pricey fabrics.
That's a lovely bib for your resident dragon - I'm sure everyone will be happy when she doesn't drop crumbs everywhere - even imaginary ones :DReplyDelete
I too have a hard time cutting into pricey (or precious - as in fabrics I can't get easily) fabrics. I bought 3 yards of TMNT fabrics in Ogdensburg this weekend - we shall SEE if I ever manage to use them!
Pretty clever pattern and it turned out beautifully! Love the dragon model LOL! I'm still a little afraid to try out my new sewing machine, but I plan to!ReplyDelete
