In the past I've made and sold a lot of quilted baby bibs.
This is the style I've always made before. With the bias binding extended so the bib could be tied on. (Sorry the quilting doesn't show up on any of these pictures.)
They are reversible and become softer and more absorbent the more they're washed.
Recently my daughter suggested (she's an idea-person just like her dad . . . always thinking too much . . . they drive me crazy) I revise my pattern so that the bib closed in back with either velcro or a snap. Hmm, actually a good idea. Easier on and off. (I would have thought of that sooner or later. Uh-huh, sure.)
So this is my first prototype with a snap closure. Only problem I'm having is to get the bias binding to go around the two top curved pieces smoothly enough. Not an easy job, I'm finding. (Lots of blue smoke coming out of my ears while I'm fighting with it.)
The snap closure still allows the bib to be easily reversible. No problem there. I just have to figure out a way to get the binding to go on easier (painstakingly slow to sew around those tight curves) and lay flatter without wrinkles, crinkles, tucks and bunches. I think next I might try pillowcasing it with no binding.
Back to the drawing board.
