Easy Foiled Baby BIbs
I may have said this before but I’ll say it again…I am obsessed with anything foiled. I just finished working on a gold foil ‘A’ to hang in the house and I have (as an obsessive foiler) pinned anything and everything I can find on Pinterest that has to do with adding a touch of shiny gold. I saw the phrase “Brand Sparkling New” while looking through baby items on Pinterest and I fell in love with it. I think it’s just the cutest thing!! I decided to take the phrase and place it on a bib. I debated about doing a onsie but decided a bib and matching hair bow would be so much cuter and my little one would be able to wear it more frequently. Plus, I love sewing baby bibs, it’s so easy to customize them. And, after all, little S will only be “Brand Sparkling New” for a short time 🙂
Here is exactly how I did mine!
- Deco Foil
- Glitter applique (I found this next to the t-shirts at my local craft store, it should already be ready to iron on once your design is cut out)
- 2 kinds of fabric (a pattern and a solid, you’ll need about a 1/2 yard of each)
- Bib pattern (here is a great one you can use if you don’t already have one.)
- colored foil of your choice, I choose a bright pink
The first thing to do is cut your pattern out. Make sure to cut one patterned fabric piece and one solid piece.
With right sides together, stitch 1/4 in around your bib making sure to leave a 2 inch opening at the bottom for turning. Take your scissors and clip your curved edges, be very careful not to clip into your seam. These clips are going to help your curved edges lay flat.
Once your curves are clipped, turn your bib right side out and give it a good pressing, tuck your edges in where you left the seam open. Edge stitch around your bib, closing up the bottom where you had left it open for turning.
Taking your glitter applique, use a stencil or free-hand, the word “sparkling”. The thing to remember is if you are tracing on the backside of your glitter applique you’ll want to remember trace your letters backwards so they show up correctly when you’ve applied them.
Once you have your letters cut out lay them out on your bib and apply them. Instructions for applying will have been included with your applique.
For “brand” and “new” use the deco foil to cut out your letters. Follow the instructions on the back of the deco foil for how to apply to your fabric. I used a slightly smaller stencil because I anted the word “sparkling” to stand out. You could also use a different font too.
Once you’ve applied your deco foil, follow the instructions on the deco foil on how to apply the colored foil you have choosen. It’s very easy to do 🙂
Once all your appliques have been applied it should look similar to mine seen above.
I used a snap as a closure but you could also use Velcro. The reason I choose a snap was because I didn’t want my little S to be able to pull it off easily.
And there you have it! An adorable bib for your new little one. I can’t wait to try this on little S and see how it looks!! As usual you can find a finished product on the Etsy shop. The one at the store comes with a matching hair bow. It’s adorable. Even if you don’t need one, you should still stop by and make sure to check it out.
If you aren’t too keen on sewing, you can easily do this same design idea on a bib you find at the store or even have one at home.
