Baby Bib with your Cricut!

Bib set-1

What is it about everything baby that is just…instantly cute!  I had a big response to the baby bib gift set I posted earlier, so I decided to create a tutorial.

Bib set-3

This project is PERFECT for a beginner sewist.  The bib can easily be made with 2 fat quarters (for a reversible look), or just one if you don’t mind both sides matching.  I prefer to use a flannel or terry cloth fabric for the back just to give it that soft feel and add some extra absorbency.  I used a Cricut Quilting Kit for the fabric.  I just love how all of their Riley Blake patterned fabrics go so well together.

Bib set-4

If you haven’t upgraded to the Cricut Maker yet yet, don’t worry.  You can make this with the Cricut Explore (or even a Silhouette).  Simply follow along and cut the pattern pieces in cardstock, then use the cardstock as a pattern piece to cut your fabric by hand.  Easy Peasy!  Of course, I love using the Cricut Maker to cut all of my fabric pieces.

I’ve provided you with the free SVG file to use for your pattern.  You can download it here.  Be sure and turn off the word layers when you cut the file.

The bib is already sized for you, simply upload it into Cricut Design Space (or Silhouette Studio) and you’re ready to go.

Here’s a picture of another gift set I made using this pattern.

Baby Gifts Galore!

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE my Cricut Maker?  I do!  It has opened up a whole new world of crafting for me.  I made this cute little gift set in one afternoon.

The Cricut Maker cut all of the fabric pieces for me. I love that each piece is precisely cut so that all I have to do is stitch it together.  I created the bib design in Adobe Illustrator and simply uploaded the pattern to Cricut Design Space.

Even this sweet little bow was created using pattern pieces cut by the Cricut Maker.

I think the real winner of this entire gift set is the adorable fabrics!  I bought the Little Dolly Baby Size Quilt Set from Cricut and used the fabrics to create this adorable baby gift set.  The Burp cloth is made from fabric and a cloth diaper.  It’s so soft and absorbant for baby and for mom.

I can’t wait to use more of the fabrics on future gift sets.

Baby Burp Cloths

Hey there everyone!  It’s me…again… twice in one day!

I have the day off and I didn’t get to post last week, so I am bringing you a bonus project today.

Burp-3

I needed a super easy, super quick baby gift this past weekend.  I made a set of 3 burb cloths in about 20 minutes.  I can’t even get to the store to buy something that quickly.

Burp-1

I think they turned out so cute and what new mom doesn’t need some practical gifts to go along with all of those darling baby outfits.

Burp-5

A little ribbon and you’ve got yourself a really cute baby gift.  You probably already have scraps of fabric or fat quarters just waiting to be made into cute baby gifts!

Burp Cloths (2 of 5)

Here’s another set.  I made these with fat quarters from Walmart.  Don’t they look cute together?!!

A little tip:  When sewing with terry cloth, use a longer stitch length (I used a 3.0 to sew it together and a 3.5 to topstitch).

I made you a quick tutorial, but these are so easy, you probably don’t even need it.  ).
