Making Baby Bibs

I started making Baby Bibs and it is not an easy thing to do.  I have made 2 and I think that this may be the end of my bib making.  I did some applique on them but I am not completely happy with the bias binding on them.

Care Bears are so cute !!
With appliqued stars.

I put the bias binding on the front on this one first and then turned
it over to the back and machine sewed it on the back.

Alphabet Letters and Hearts.

I sewed the bias tape onto the back of this one and
then turned it to the front and sewed it onto the front.
I figured that they would be washed many times
so they should be totally machine sewn
and not hand sewn.

I fussy cut the little bee on the blue heart,
the orange fabric was plain so I
thought the little bumble bee
would add a sweet touch.

Well, it's sure cute! But I agree, binding around corners on small items is a pain! I'll do it for potholders in order to turn the last bit into a hanging loop but not necessarily for baby bibs!

Babies don't care so I just do the inside out turning technique and some top stitching. Not as cute but a lot easier ;)

Still cute, Peggy!
