Shirt & Tie Bibs

September 20, 2011 Sarah Coggins

I mentioned in yesterday’s post that the only girl in our playgroup celebrated her 2nd birthday over the weekend. When I stumbled across the idea of Shirt & Tie Bibs by Modest Maven on Pinterest, I instantly thought of our playgroup and how cute the 2 year old boys would look wearing them at her party. I used newspaper, a black Sharpie & one of Dylan’s bibs to create the basic bib pattern. The tie & collar pieces I sketched freehand. Playing around with various fun print fabrics and coordinating solids, the end result were these 5 bibs …

Supplies: assorted cotton & broadcloth fabrics from JoAnn Fabrics & personal stash; fusible interfacing; Pellon Wonder Under; Sulky Tear-Easy Stabilizer; Coats & Clark threads; snaps.
