Up-cycled Baby Bibs or Another Reason I Need a Sewing Machine
I am learning to sew, and at the moment I am terrible at it. I have a wonderful friend who has come over with her sewing machine to show me the basics and I have the general concept but the detailed stuff still throws me. This is the same friend that did most of the work on E's awesome superhero rag quilt (see that project here), and she was kind enough to come over for another lesson in our attempt to make baby bibs from Goodwill t-shirts and terry cloth. We had both pinned a few different blog posts about making baby bibs, and ended up using the template from http://sewshesews.wordpress.com/2010/04/08/quilted-patchwork-bib-pattern-and-tutorial/. I had two superhero t-shirts I picked up from Goodwill and an old hooded towel of K's. The hooded towel worked great because it was fairly thin terry cloth which was much easier to sew.
