After a week or two of sewing some practical items (I'll post about that next week) I was itching to do a quick, done-in-one-session project. With all the gardening and subsequent watering being done around here, it really needed to be an extra quick one.
I've had Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing for Baby for quite some time. I thought I would try the bib kerchief project which looked extra quick and easy.
Which it was. Basically a distorted triangular shape that is hemmed. Though I have to admit that I had a little drama with sewing the narrow corners. My machine doesn't seem to like tiny strips of fabric, or perhaps it is just a case of the worker blaming her tools.
The kerchief can be used like a drool bib (while looking quite fun and stylish ) or as a headscarf.
This is a great project for using up scraps. I used some Japanese fabric that I recently bought on sale, as well as a few vintage sheeting pieces.
Safety note - as with items that tie around the neck, be careful not to leave baby unattended.
Hope you all have a marvelous Friday.
