I always enjoy sewing things for the kiddos. Most of the time I go for the fun stuff, but sometimes you need to mix the fun with the practical.
Denim bibs are practical, nice and sturdy, but they don't have to be boring.
For this project, I used the Monster Bib template from Carolynn over at Fab N' Free as my base pattern. (I made a couple of her Monster Bibs a while back and they are just freaking cute.)
I bought my monster fabric because it reminded me so much of Monsters, Inc., one of my favorite Disney movies. Just a cute, bright, and fun pattern!
I went a little different direction on this version of the denim monster bib. I cut the bottom half of the pattern from denim and the top straps from my monster fabric just to mix things up. I cut a separate strip from the monster fabric for my center "pop" of color and pattern.
I stitched my pieces together and added my center strip on top of the main denim piece with a little zigzag stitching for decoration.
I flipped the bib back right side out, folded in my unfinished edge, and top stitched the whole thing with a bright orange zigzag stitch.
After that, I just stitched on some velcro circles at the top flaps of the bib and my denim monster bib was ready to go!
I really like how this one turned out. A good stepping stone for developing some new bib pattern ideas.
