Hi, Everyone! Jessica Dayon and I am here to share with you another new tutorial made using the AccuQuilt GO! Baby Bib and GO! Burp Cloth Dies. Earlier this week, we made a little girl's bib and burp cloth set and now we are following up with one for a baby boy!

 

Rustic Baby Boy

 

The GO! Baby Bib and GO! Burp Cloth dies are so handy to have around and they make creating baby gifts SO easy and quick. They are two dies you'll keep coming back to when you are making gifts for other or everyday bibs and burp cloths for your own children.

 

This project makes one baby bib and one burp cloth.

 

Materials

  • AccuQuilt GO! Fabric Cutter
  • GO! Baby Bib Die (55864)
  • GO! Burp Cloth Die (55863)
  • 2/3 yard of Robert Kaufman Mammoth Flannel Plaid Adventure {SKU SRKF-14891-267}
  • 8" x 9" piece of black solid fabric
  • 8" x 9" piece piece of Therm O Web Heat n Bond Lite
  • 20" x 20" piece of The Warm Company Warm and White Batting
  • Baby Tie Template

 

Bib Instructions

Rough cut the fabric for the bib into two, 9" x 14" pieces. Lay the two pieces on top of each other (make sure they are wrong sides together). Use the AccuQuilt GO! Fabric Cutter and the GO! Baby Bib die to cut the bibs out. Repeat this process with one, 9" x 14" piece of batting.

Print out the Baby Tie Template for the tie shape. Fuse the Heat n Bond Lite to the back of the black fabric. Cut out the template and trace it onto the paper side of the Heat n Bond Lite. If you don't like to use templates, you can get creative with the GO! Kite dies from AccuQuilt's GO! Mix & Match Companion Set-Angles.

Cut the tie out following the lines on the paper. Peel the paper off and line the tie up on the front of the bib where you'd like it to be- staying at least ½" down from the top center edge. Fuse the tie to the bib, following the directions on the Heat n Bond Lite package. Sew the tie to secure it completely - a blanket stitch, zig-zag stitch, or straight stitch would all work great.

Next, this is optional, but I trimmed away about ¼" around the edge of the batting. I did this so the batting would sit about ¼" of the bib fabric so that once we sew and turn it right side out, the seams would lay really flat. I just used my ruler and a sharpie and marked ¼" dots all the way around and then trimmed away up to the dots.

Put the layers of the bib together- back of bib with the right side facing up, front of bib with the right side facing down, then batting.

Pin the layers together. Sew roughly ¼" from the edge (you want to, ever so little, bite into the batting with the stitches to secure it in place), leaving about a 3" opening for turning.

Turn the bib right side out. Turning the portion that goes around the back of the neck is tricky because it is narrow but go slowly and it will come out. Press. Then top stitch around the bib, about ⅛" away from the edge. As you topstitch, you will close up the 3" hole that you left for turning the bib right side out.

Attach a snap as the bib's closure. I used this kit and followed the directions in the kit to attach the snap.

Your bib is complete!

Burp Cloth Instructions

Now, let's make a coordinating burp cloth! Rough cut the fabric for the burp cloth into two 10" x 20" pieces. Lay the two pieces on top of each other (make sure they are wrong sides together). Use the AccuQuilt GO! Fabric Cutter and the GO! Burp Cloth Fabric cutting die to cut the burp cloths out. Repeat this process with one 10" x 20" piece of batting.

Next, this is optional, but I trimmed away about ¼" around the edge of the batting. I did this so the batting would sit about ¼" of the burp cloth fabric so that once we sew and turn it right side out, the seams would lay really flat. Just as before, I used my ruler and a sharpie and marked ¼" dots all the way around and then trimmed away up to the dots.

Put the layers of the burp cloth together - back of burp cloth with the right side facing up, front of burp cloth with the right side facing down, then batting. Pin the layers together. Sew roughly ¼" from the edge (same as before, you want to ever so little bite into the batting with the stitches to secure it in place), leaving about a 3" opening for turning.

Turn the burp cloth right side out. Press if needed. Then top stitch around the burp cloth about ⅛" away from the edge. As you topstitch, you will close up the 3" hole that you left for turning the burp cloth right side out.
