Matching Bibs, Burb Cloths, Diaper Pouch and Tie Onesie
This gift set was so much fun to make because I knew it would be used and loved by my soon to be cousins’ son. Eliana and I unfortunately missed the baby shower because we already had our Florida vacation booked, but we attended in spirit and gift.
I chose three coordinating fabrics for the set that were appropriate for a boy, but honestly I love two of the fabrics so much that I may go back and get more to make something for Eliana too.
Three coordinating bibs:
I love the pearlized snap on this bib.
They were lined with a very soft off-white minky fabric and had fusible fleece sewn between the layers so that they would be more absorbent.
I use a free pattern on Purl Bee for all my bibs. I have made several for Eliana to match outfits with the same pattern – I think it is a nice size and shape.
Three coordinating burb cloths:
I made a sleeve to hold the burp cloths and added my label to the green fabric sleeve.
I lined them with a soft terry cloth.
The burp cloths were a half a yard long and about 11 inches wide.
Burp Cloths with their Matching Bibs:
Coordinating Diaper Pouch:
It folds into a nice size to either carry or throw into a diaper bag
It has a pocket on the inside when you open it to hold a couple diapers, wipes and cream
When opened it is long enough for a baby to lay on it while you change their diaper with a pocket that holds all the necessities.
I found the tutorial to make this at: Cluck Cluck Sew. I only altered it slightly by adding two of the coordinating fabrics for the outside (instead of one) and the soft minky for the inside (instead of chenille).
Coordinating Tie Onesie:
I found a tutorial for the tie onesie at: The Cottage Home I altered the size of the tie from the tutorial because the tie was too big for a 0-3 month onesie.
And the back…
I added one of my clothing labels onto the back outside.
I think it looks cute and adds to the homemade look.
