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.

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.

30 Days of KAM Snaps and Beyond!!! How to make a Reversible Frayed Edge Coffee Cozy with KAM Snaps and Free PDF Pattern

Day #36

How to make a Reversible Frayed Edge Coffee Cozy with KAM Snaps and Free PDF Pattern

Today, I am making a couple cute Coffee Cozys for my cousin.  She called me a week ago super excited with the great idea to make Coffee Cozy with KAM Snaps :).  Since, it was just a week until her birthday I thought it was a sign ;P.  Happy Birthday Dear Cousin!!!  KAM Snaps to the rescue again!

Supplies:

Coffee Cozy Reversable Fabric Rag Edge Tutorial pic title

Coffee Cozy Reversable Fabric Rag Edge Tutorial pic1

Instructions:

1.  Download the Frayed Edge Coffee Cozy 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.  This pattern works on standard sized 12 ounce and 16 ounce cups.  My models were Dixie and Chinet brands.

2.  Cut out each Pattern piece as many times as instructed.  The first time I made this the pattern, though it fitted the cup as a paper template, did not fit when fully finished.  I have added an additional 1″ to the pattern to adjust for the loss in length as fabric sewn and fitted.  Make sure to wash and dry your fabrics before making this pattern if you plan to wash them later to avoid shrinkage.

3.  Original picture of pattern on fabric.

4.  Pattern after I added 1″, PDF Pattern has been fixed.

5.  Cut out 3 pieces, front and back fabric and interlining because this is going to be an exposed layer I used Felt.  You can use whichever material you like, this layer is for protection from the heat of the cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate.

6.  Pin the 3 layers of fabric together.  Bottom fabric right side down, felt or batting, and top fabric right side up.

7.  Sew a 3/8″ seam allowance all the way around the Coffee Cozy making sure to back stitch at the start and finish of your piece.  I trimmed the edges where the fabric didn’t line up exactly perfect after it was sewn together.

8.  Snip small cuts into the edge of the material about every 1/4″ to help the fraying process.  This will happen more fully over time and multiple washings.  Do both the top and bottom, I left the short sides alone.

9.  Finished look.

Coffee Cozy Reversable Fabric Rag Edge Tutorial pic10

10.  Install 2 KAM Snap Caps and 2 Studs on the left side and install 2 KAM Snap Caps and 2 Sockets on the other side.  I have included “blue dots” on the template to approximate where to place them but it is best to wrap the snap-free Coffee Cozy around a Coffee Cup to see how it fits and where you would like to place the snaps.  I placed the top and bottom KAM Snaps about 1/2″ down from the finished seam edge of the Cozy.

11.  Here is the finished product both front and back.  You will note that it is reversible and that I coordinated the snaps so that it has different color snaps parts on each side.  Just seemed extra fun :)!
