One of our most popular tutorials, Bandana Bibs are a great gift for those little droolers and mess makers in your life or as an outfit accessory. So cute!  I, also, used our Heart Shaped KAM Snaps for added pizazz, check it out!

Supplies:

Instructions:

1.  Download the Bandana Bib PDF Pattern.  Print out the pattern making sure the 1″ square in the corner measures 1″ square when printed that will indicate the pattern is the right size.

2.  Cut out the pattern.

3.  Place your pattern, with long straight side on fabric folded in half, and pin in place.

4.  Cut the 2 pieces of Fabric you will use.

5.  Place Fabrics right sides together.

6.  Pin together.

7.  Sew pieces together with a 1/4″ seam allowance, back stitching at the start  and finish of sewing, make sure to leave a 3-4″ gap so that you can pull the piece right side out.

8.  Pull piece right side out and make sure to push all the round and square corners out until they lay flat.

9.  Fold in the opening’s seams and pin in place.

10.  Stitch a finish stitch 1/8″ to 1/4″ all the way around the bib, making sure to ease your way around the left and right tabs.  I do a couple stitches, stop, then lift the foot, turn the fabric slightly, put the foot down, and do a couple more stitches and repeat.  Make sure the back stitch at the beginning and end of your sewing.

11.  Use the template to mark the KAM Snap placement, you many want to check the measurement of your child’s neck and adjust the pattern or snap placement accordingly.  This bib worked for a toddler but with an extra set of snaps can work for more sizes.

12.  I decided as I was getting ready to install the KAM Snaps to go with our new Heart Shaped snaps.  Install the Heart Shaped KAM Snap Cap and Stud in the left and a Cap and Socket on the right tab.

Perfect Bow and Baby Proof Sash Tutorial – Courtesy of Pattern Revolution and I Like Big Buttons! KAM Plastic Snaps

A while back, Robin of Pattern Revolution made this super cute Perfect Bow and Baby Proof Sash and shared how she did it with us.  I thought this would be a great time to revisit the tutorial as fall approaches.

Supplies:

058perfectbow

Every morning it is a struggle to dress my feisty 2 year old. All her pretty sashes hang untouched in the closet, while the dresses they go with get worn over and over. I love the look of a pretty bow, but my baby wont hold still long enough to tie it nicely, and in the miraculous event that she does, she unties it and removes the sash a few minutes later. GRRRR!!! Tell me I’m not the only one with this problem???

058002perfectbow

Decisions, decisions….

First, you need to determine your sash length and width. Measure your child’s waist while wearing the garment, add 2″ for sash length.  Decide how wide you want the sash, double that and add 1/2″. Cut your sash.

Then, you need to determine the bow width and tail length that you like…

Glimpses of the Perfect Bow and Sash Tutorial, to see it in full.
