Spring has finally arrived here in Northern California! It’s such an inspiring time to create handmade gifts for upcoming celebrations and baby showers. Before I got started, I watched a baby bib tutorial from Spoonflower. It was really helpful to see the entire process from start to finish.

I really like this style of bandana bib because it allows for a little extra fabric around the chin area for added comfort. I’ve included an inch indication on the left side for reference. The bibs I made from this pattern will fit an 18 month old baby. You’ll notice that the bandana front is a little taller than the bandana back. The extra fabric on the front is what provides a little folded area at the top to make the bandana more comfortable around the baby’s neck. To begin, cut out the paper pattern pieces and pin them to the fabrics.

Cut the fabric around the edges of the pattern. With right sides together, pin the fabrics along the bottom edge only. Turn the bandana right side out and push the corners out using a bone folder, pencil or chopstick. Attach the Velcro dots on both sides by stitching with an X. You have completed your first bandana! I hope you enjoy this project. As you can see, I’ve made lots of extra bandanas for upcoming baby showers, and I just can’t wait to give them away.

If you love crafting, you know just what I mean. There’s something so gratifying about making things, even if you don’t know what you’ll ever do with them! Since Mother’s Day is coming up on May 13, I thought it would be fun to use these lovely felt flowers to make corsage pins for some special moms. Two dear friends, Nancy Ball and Jeni Henry, joined me for an afternoon of crafting to make these lovely gifts. The Camellia die makes the multi-petaled flowers, and the Flower die makes beautiful roses. Instead of adhering the flowers to a headband, you’ll adhere them to a round backing piece. Play with the arrangement until you find the positioning you like.
