This month I've made 5 bibs as my contribution to Kristy's sew-along, over at Hopeful Threads, in support of Hidden Treasures Home of Loaves and Fishes International.
I've used the Big Kids Bib pattern, by Fishstick Designs. It's super quick and easy to make. I've backed my bibs with flannelette and used pre-loved t-shirting as an extra internal layer for added absorbency.
Originally, I bought this flannelette on sale, to use as backing on a future quilt. It was, however, a good colour to go with the Happy Town fabric I used on the bibs.
How lucky am I? Last month I won a fat quarter bundle of Happy Town fabric, courtesy of the Fat Quarter Shop and Hopeful Threads. Now, apart from the fact that this fabric is just SO cute, it was designed to support Quilts for Kids. You can read more about the story behind the fabric collection, over on the Fat Quarter Shop blog, Jolly Jabber.
I've only used a small portion of the fabric I won. These are my favourite fabrics out of the ones I've used so far.
You can see more bibs made in support of the sew-along, for both kids and adults, over at the Hopeful Threads Flickr group.
