Giraffe Bib

I have a ton of friends who are pregnant right now, so I wanted to get a head start on the baby gifts! While gifts from the store make great presents, homemade just adds a little something special. I found an adorable bib pattern from Pine Needles, one of my favorite shops here in Utah {located inside Gardner Village to be exact}, with almost everything you need for any sewing project.

Giraffe Bib

While the finished bib looks a little complicated, I promise it's not!! The pattern is made by Precious Patterns, and is so easy to follow and had pictures to show you every step of the way. I was so happy that for once, I didn't have to unpick anything! If you are a beginner sewer, I would highly recommend this pattern. With just a few changes in fabrics, every bib will be unique!

Pattern, fabrics, and all accessories for this project can be found at the Pine Needles store!

Giraffe Bib

It took me about an hour to make this bib, but I'm kind of slow when I'm working with a new project. Now that I've made it once, I know I could make it again in less than 30 minutes. My daughter has been wearing it herself, and having a lot of fun using this bib for her dolls. So, I can positively say that this pattern is kid-approved! The fleece/flannel inside of the bib makes it absorbent to any spills, and it's constructed in a way that I'm sure will hold up nicely in the wash.

To see more from Pine Needles, make sure to visit their blog, online shop, and on Facebook! If you're local, be sure to check out their new shop location at Gardner Village!
