Spoonflower (adult size) Lobster Bib

by Julie Hirt

This is my own design!   I drew it up in Illustrator, uploaded to and received it in less than 2 weeks.  Very happy with fabric and the entire process.

Fairly simple to make- I backed it with an orange and white pattern fat quarter fabric, put a piece of scrap quilting batting in between.

To sew place your batting down, lobster fabric on top (right side up), then backing fabric face down.  Sew around leaving about 6 inches to turn it back to the right side.   Then sew up the hole.

Quarter inch edging around the sides – not the top where the tie goes.

Tie: Cut and sew together to form one long piece.  Fold in half and iron > open > folded the edges to the iron line > then fold in half again and iron. The result is 1/4″ inch strips.  Then sew along down the middle and attaching to the front of the bib. I did take photos along the way and will get those uploaded shortly.
