I cut the fabric 13"x the lenght of the fabric all the way down. I then fold it in half and sewn it together with leaving a 4" space opening for turning. I then hand stitched it up. Very quick and easy! The boys just love them, super soft and very warm.

I wanted to make Sweet pea a special Christmas bib for this is her first Christmas. I have seen the foot and hand print reindeer and though oh how cute to put this onto a bib.
brown scrap fabric, two different browns
heat and bond
green fabric cut 2" down the whole length of the fabric
baby rick rack
2 black buttons, one green button
***sew in a 1/4" seam allowance***
To start off trace your baby's foot and hands, this was hard for me because my little girl wouldn't sit still ;) .Next trace a bib onto the white fabric adding a 1/4" seam allowance. I also added about a 1/2" to the sides to make room for the antlers. Cut out and add the fusible interfacing to the front side of the bib.

I just love the stitching on the back. Now all I will have to do is cook the gingerbread cookies and fill the stockings.

You will need:
fabric for the front and lining, just scraps will be enough
warm and natural for inside
elastic hair band
button and thread
***sew with a 1/4" seam allowance***
Step 1; Take a paper coffee band and trace for the pattern, add a 1/4" seam allowance all the way around. Also add a 1/2" to the pattern at the right end of the pattern. On the left side of the pattern mark "place on fold" as in picture.
Step 4; sew around with leaving a 3" space open at the bottom middle for turning. Clip the extra off the corners (this is to make sharper corners after turned,) turn and press.
