Hi, Everyone! My name is Jessica Dayon and I am here to share with you a new tutorial that made using the AccuQuilt GO! Baby Bib and the GO! Burp Cloth dies. These two dies are so handy to have around and they make creating baby gifts SO easy and quick. I can almost guarantee you'll keep coming back to them when you are making gifts for other or everyday bibs and burp cloths for your own children. Today's baby bib and burp cloths are perfect for the little girl in your life, but check back for a dapper project for a little boy.

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). I used the AccuQuilt GO! Fabric Cutter and the AccuQuilt GO! Baby Bib Die to cut the bibs out, but both dies also fit the GO! Big and Studio with die adapter. Repeat this process with one 9" x 14" piece of batting.

To sew on the daisy trim, lay the batting down and then, on top of it, put the front of bib with the right side facing up. Use a few pins to secure these layers together. Lay the daisy lace trim on the front, center of the bib. Sew the trim on.

Next, put the three the layers of the bib together - back of bib with the wrong side facing up, batting, then front of bib with the right side facing up. Pin the layers together. Sew roughly ⅛" from the edge all the way around the bib. This is just to hold it together while you are putting on the trim and the binding. It doesn't have to be perfect but don't go out past ¼" from the edge because then you would see it after the binding is attached.

Then cut the extra portion of the trim that hangs over the edges.

Use the two 2½" x 21" strips and make continuous binding. Press the binding in half widthwise. Sew the binding on to the front of the bib - lay the raw edges of the binding so that they are matched up with the raw edges of the bib, sew ¼" in from the raw edges. Gently guide the binding around the curved portions. I used a yarn-dyed fabric for my binding, which is pretty stretchy. If you are using regular quilting cotton here (or something else that doesn't stretch as well when it is cut straight of grain), you would probably want to make bias binding so that you have no issues working around the curves.

 

Take a look at this post for more information on how to use bias binding.

Gently pull the binding to the back of the bib. Use the Heat n Bond hem tape to secure the binding to the back of the bib. Follow the instructions on the package for fusing it.

Attach a snap at the bibs closure. I used this kit and followed the directions in the kit to attach the snap.

Your bib is complete!  Let's make a coordinating burp cloth!

 

Burp Cloth Instructions

Rough cut the fabric for the burp cloth into two 10" x 20" pieces (one from the yellow print and one from the denim). Lay the two pieces on top of each other (make sure they are wrong sides together). Again, use the AccuQuilt GO! fabric cutter and the GO! Burp Cloth Die to cut the burp cloths out. Repeat this process with one 10" x 20" piece of batting.

Put the layers of the bib together - back of bib with the wrong side facing up, batting, then front of bib with the right side facing up. Pin the layers together. Quilt the burp cloth quilt sandwich as desired. Here I did a free motion stipple.

Use the three 2½" x 21" strips and make continuous binding. Press the binding in half widthwise. Sew the binding on to the front of the burp cloth - lay the raw edges of the binding so that they are matched up with the raw edges of the burp cloth, sew ¼" in from the raw edges. Gently guide the binding around the curved portions. Once again, I used a yarn dyed fabric for my binding, which is pretty stretchy. If you are using regular quilting cotton here (or something else that doesn't stretch as well when it is cut straight of grain), you would probably want to make bias binding so that you have no issues working around the curves.

Gently pull the binding to the back of the burp cloth. Use the Heat n Bond hem tape to secure the binding to the back of the it. Follow the instructions on the package for fusing it.
