Am I nuts?
I thought it was kinda cool. Quarky, but cool.
A Vinyl Glitter bib.
Ruby is more distracted turning her bib up and down than eating. Oops.
This one ended up a tad BIG...
These two turned out fab.
This is how I made them:
Cut two pieces of vinyl measuring roughly 7.5 inches across and 6 inches tall.
Get out a package of extra wide double fold binding tape.
I use Wrights, or make my own.
You will need at least 40 inches of this, give or take for your baby's fit.
Choose the items to go inside:
(make confetti with a paper punch, poms, glitter, pictures, even magazine pages. The possibilites are endless.)
Pin the binding over the top portion like this and sew it on.
Insert the items and pinch it closed. The vinyl sticks to itself pretty well, so it should stay put.
Place the remaining binding equally over the rest of the bib, matching the neck ties so they are even. This is one continuous strip of binding--so if you need to find the center just fold it in half and press.
Put this crease mark in the center bottom of the bib.
I coaxed it around the curved edge with my iron VERY carefully. Vinyl will melt--so be careful!
Pin in place and sew it on.
Clip the threads and pink the edges of the binding ends for a decorative touch. Binding won't fray, it's cut on the bias.
Did you know that about fabric? I just learned if you cut it on the bias it won't fray. Awsome.
