Batman Baby Bibs

My husband is a huge Batman fan, HUGE. So when I found out I was going to have a baby boy I decided to make some Batman baby bibs for him. Character fabric is pricey so I bought 1/2 a yard when it was 40% off at Joann's recently. I was able to make 4 bibs and I had some scraps left over to make elbow and knee pads.

Supplies Needed: 1/2 yard character flannel, 1/2 yard minky fabric, snaps or velcro, basic sewing supplies.

To make your bib pattern, take an existing bib, fold it in half and trace the outline on a piece of paper. Once you have cut out your pattern take your flannel piece and place the pattern piece on the fold and cut out your bib. Repeat with the minky fabric. Place the two pieces right sides together and sew using a 1/4 inch seam allowance leaving a small opening at the bottom. Clip your curve and turn right side out. Sew the along the bib edge using a 1/8 inch seam allowance. Add your snaps or sew your velcro on the tabs.

I decided to add snaps to close my bib instead of velcro this time. I used different shades of blue so every bib is slightly different.

A little tip, when sewing with minky fabric make sure you sew a little bit slower than normal. I had problems with it stretching to much when I made burp cloths. I can't wait to use these bibs!
