Denim and Ties Are So Great Together

I wanted to make some baby boy bibs for a friend’s new baby.  Denim is always so much fun to sew with, especially if it is from an old pair of jeans and you can re-purpose them.

First I cut out a tie shape and appliqued it on using fusible pelon under it.  I then cut  out a collar shape and stitched it in with a satin stitch.

Next I cut out a pocket using the seam of the pant leg as the top.  then I stitched the lining to it wrong sides together leaving an opening and then turning it .

I top stitched around it to give the whole edge a crisp look that would last through the washing’s.  This bib quickly became the favorite bib of my friend’s bibs.

I closed it with snaps sewn snugly on.
