Baby Bib and Burp Cloth Tutorial

Nothing more exciting than making a gift for a friend whose family has just expanded!  Initially, I wasn't sure what I wanted to sew for her so I went looking through my pinterest board for inspiration!
I ended up recycling a pair of blue jeans into a bib and appliquing a burp cloth to match.
Here are my inspriration pieces!
I was drawn to the colors and simple decorative stitches.  I made a few changes after my sewing machine decided that it would have no part in pretty stitches...ugh.  I did not use ribbon, but instead used a scrap of my favorite fabric.  I think I had about a quarter of a yard hanging around.  Ric rac was used along the top.  I then penciled in the baby's name along the bottom and used a simple backstitch using embroidery thread.  While this site offered the styling inspiration, I needed a template to use, since baby bibs have long been gone from my house. 
You can download this template in real sizing by clicking HERE.  Be sure to check out Clover & Violet as well, because the baby bibs there are cute too!
The burp cloth was made using a cloth diaper and simpling appliquing the name to the bottom corner.  I am very low tech and as soon as I get some extra time on my hands, I will write a tutorial on how I did this. 

Thanks so much for visiting!
