Sew Baby - Sleeve-Saver Bib

I made my son a nautical-themed sleeve-saver bib for his birthday. I found the perfect baby-blue stretch terry in the red tag fabric area at JoAnn's and complimented it with navy ribbing from my stash.

You can see here since it was his first birthday, that I made my own applique of the number 1 with nautical fabric. Instead of purchased bias tape, I made it from the same fabric as the applique.

I have made this pattern a few times before. It is super-quick and perfect to pack along if going out for dinner after church. The terry from these two also came from the red tag fabrics at JoAnn's. The ribbing is actually dancewear fabric from JoAnn's.

This was my first sleeve-saver, made for my daughter's first birthday. The stretch terry was from SewBaby, as well as the daisy-printed knit that I used for the neck and wristbands. Also, SewBaby is one of the only places I know of where you can find ribbing for neckbands. They also have a new "sleeve saver smock" for sizes 3-6x, perfect for little crafters!
