Really simple. I just went with the flow. I drew a standard bib as a template and then basically stitched lots of small pieces together and as I went along I just made sure I had stitched enough together to cover the size of the bib template with extra for the hem. Pieces were stitched with patterned faces together as if you are making a cushion cover so when turned out you can't see any ugly hems. I cut out the plastic backing using the template. Remember to leave a hem. Pinned the front n backing together faces together so when stitched it will be turned inside out. When stitching remember to leave about 3 inches unstitched at the bottom of the bib to enable you to turn itinside out. Then I just stitched along the bottom to close n sewed poppers on at the top. So simple n just have a go. I have made many more bibs now and just have a go realy. X
blueeyedgrammie asked:
What kind of plastic backing? Did u use cotton material? I should get same outcome even though I'm sewing by Hand?

to be honest its all recycled materials, i used blackout blind plastic as its lovely n soft on one side yet waterproof on the other. it washed realy well too. x
