Forest Frolics Baby Bibs

Categories: Utility, Gifts, Kid Friendly

Absolutely nothing smells sweeter than a brand new baby. To keep them smelling sweet, sometimes a bib might come in handy for those little mishaps. With all of the wonderful themed prints available, you will most likely spend more time choosing the right fabric than it takes to sew one or perhaps even two of the Forest Frolics Baby Bibs. They are perfect for gift giving or just having on hand when let’s face it – life gets a little messy.

Choosing the perfect fabric is really the amazing part of this project. I could not resist making up another set using Tweet Together by Monkey Bow for Studioefabrics.  What Fun! You will notice I also added a simple placket down the front and trimmed everything up with mini rick rack.
