Introducing the Bapron! aka the "baby apron". I hope the name doesn't turn you off (I knowit's hopelessly cheesy), but this bib is really cool! It provides a ton of coverage in the front,much like an adult apron, and ties in back with bias tape! It's easy to make-I can whip oneout in less than 1/2 hour (I've made a dozen or so, so I'm getting pretty quick!), even withmaking the bias tape myself.Here's the back view with the cute ties! love!
I do have to give a disclaimer-I didn't think of this on my own. (wish I was that cool) My goodpal Aimee had a bib that I've always liked that she got in Japan-and so one day Ifinallycornered her convinced her to let me borrow it to trace for a pattern. Thanks Aimee!(that blue and green one below is her thank you bapron-I know, something boyish on thisblog! carazay!)Would you like to make one (or a dozen) of these for your own cutie, or for gifts? Then readon!You'll need:main fabric (a fat quarter is plenty)
(print at 100% scale, cut outand tape together on dotted lines.)Ok. First things first, let's lay the fabric and flannel out, wrong sides together. Smooth it out sothere's no wrinkles.Fold in half, and lay your pattern on the fold, then cut it out.
I am looking for an alternative to the 'bibs' available for purchase or for sewing. My Granddaughter just turned one and she is also wanting to tear off the bib. After choosing THIS one to make, I scrolled down the page to find out that 'Charlotte' is the happy baby wearing the bapron. My babron (s) will also be made by me with love for MY Grand Charlotte <3
I just made one of these from your pattern, I am a beginner sewer, this was so easy and just adorable. Thank you SOOOO much for sharing. Just one question, the weights that are on your material, how can I make my own, what are they made of, and how do you make them? Thank you~ Carla - firstname.lastname@example.org
