Elephant Walk Bib and Burp Cloth

from 2strings
(9) Name: 'Sewing : Elephant Walk Bib and Burp Cloth
Elephant Walk Bib and Burp Cloth
Elephant Walk Bib and Burp Cloth

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic sewing skills. Applique using fusible web.

Pattern Description:

I needed something special for a baby shower gift, so I designed this little set.

The bib has a choice of two whimsical applique elephants and a Velcro closure.

I thought about my own experiences with new babies when I designed the burp cloths. First, I shaped then to curve smoothly and comfortably around the neck. Then, I remembered that my own babies used to clutch my hair in their fingers and I carefully had to remove each little hair so it wouldn't get into the baby's mouth. That's why I added the satin ribbon tags. They are something smooth and silky to grab onto - surely more pleasant than hair.

The burp cloths also have two applique choices. I like the cute little daisies, but I know some designated burpers who really don't want frilly flowers draped across their shoulder. That's where the idea for the letters to write "burper" originated.

The pattern contains 5 pages of instructions with photographs, full size patterns for the bib and the burp cloth, plus templates for the appliques.

If you have any questions or comments, please send an email to me at: klee2strings@gmail.com.

I would love to see photos of your completed work in the completed projects section of this pattern page.
