Pattern Description:

This is a PDF downloadable sewing ePattern. This is not a finished bib. The Happy Face Bibs are very easy to make! They are wide across the shoulders to protect baby's clothing from spills. Instructions are included to make one style of bib that can be embellished with four different happy face appliqus - a lion, sun, bunny and tiger. A kitty can also be made using the lion/tiger pattern, eliminating the ribbon mane and stripes. You can make a plain bib without the appliqus. Cotton fabric is used for the front of the bibs and fleece is used for the back - a layer of fleece can be placed between the front and back if you would like extra padding. The appliqus on the sample bibs are made from cotton and fleece fabrics which make them very soft (fleece is used for the head and cotton fabric is used for noses, cheeks and stripes on tiger). Appliqus can be made from all cotton fabrics if preferred. Folded ribbons are placed around the edge of the lion and sun appliqus for the mane and rays. Onesies, t-shirts, burp cloths, etc. can be embellished with the appliqus. This 8 pagePDF e-pattern includes full size patterns, materials list, detailed instructions written in English, and clear step-by-step photographs. You can sell finished items made from this pattern in limited quantities. No mass production is allowed.
