Sewing Adventures: Simple Applique embroidery bib

Last evening, I finally got around to sewing the adult bib. I’d drafted a pattern for it earlier in the week and while I’d been itching to sew… something. I didn’t get around to the actual sewing until last evening.

I now do my sewing in it’s own designated area and I must say I like this arrangement a lot more. There are a few things I will purchase like a collapsible sewing table, mannequin and that blind hemmer machine but for the most part I’m good.

Applique embroidery, I have to snip the ends and put it in the washing machine.

My daughter chose the above embroidered design and I must say she made an excellent choice. I’d made this design months ago and set it aside. I’m making another one for one of her friends and will attach it to a bag.

Since the material was so thin, I added additional material to serve as the liner and stitched that to the front part of the fabric. I then attached another piece, sewed everything together on the wrong side and flipped over. Tah Dah! Now, we have a sturdy adult bib.

Completed bib. It’s time to toss this into the washing machine.

This simple project was made for one of my older church friends. I’ve made one for her before. I hope she likes this one.

That’s very nice!!!! I certainly NEED a bib – because I get stuff all over myself when I eat and do other things! LOL But I would be afraid to wear it because it’s so nice and I wouldn’t want to ‘treat it’ like a bib, ya know!? And mess it up! It’s just too nice to spill or drip anything on!
