I had leftover over from my Modcloth inspired Peter Pan dress refashion. This was the leftover scrap. I decided to use it to make bibs.
I pinned the bib pattern and cut out the plaid bibs!
Now to make my tree pattern I just simply cut a triangle on a piece of paper folded in half!
I used the triangle pattern to make trees.
I cut brown rectangles too for the bottom portion of the trees. I added the pieces to the iron-on bond.
I cut out the trees and stumps and I peeled off the paper backing.
I first added the stumps.
Next add the tree!
For some of the smaller trees I decided I wanted a smaller tree. So I just took some off the edge.
Again the craft bond. I did it in reverse this time. Made life easier and my iron thanked me.
Now I need to applique (which I have never done before) the trees and stumps. Here is me practicing.
Sew! I did several variations.
Now time to add stars! Simply add star and iron!
Here are some in progress...
The bibs need backs. I traced the bibs on green fabric I had in my stash, and cut out.
I am ready to add bias tape. I pinned the short side first and sewed down.
This picture is a perfect example of the difference between iron (left) and not ironed (right) after sewing the curves. Definitely iron!
I then sewed the top portion down of the bias tape. Repeat, repeat, repeat!
I added about 2 feet of bias tape to the top of each bib to finish it up! Done!
Here are the end bibs! OMG I love them!
