Bibs from a repurposed pillow case


This is one of my favourite types of repurposing. Sewing fabric is very expensive where I live, especially if you want nice prints. But linens and bedlinens are often very cheap, especially when shops start discounting to get rid of last season’s patterns and colours. I bought a nice set of bedding for very little recently, and decided to repurpose the pillow case for two bibs I want to give to my best friend for her new baby. The backing fabric is some towelling I bought as a remnant, so the bibs are nice and cushy.


I’m not particularly proud of the topstitching, and I had to undo one of the snaps two times, but they’re not too bad, I think.bibdetail
