Bapron {or no more eating the bib!}

 Jess over at Craftiness is not Optional has come to my rescue with the bapron. Its like an apron and a bib had a baby! Oh, and what a baby it is! 

Emma has a thing for chewing on her bib. And in doing so, she gets her food all over her shirt. It makes the bib less than helpful.

Enter the Bapron. This lovely little diddy is going to solve this clothes killing problem. I've made them as baby shower gifts for several friends. They've all been thrilled. I'm so excited to finally have had the time to make one for my little miss.


I used two flannels that I picked up at Joann's $2.50/yd sale. The bias tape is store bought. I haven't braved making my own yet. Its on my to do list, though. 


I have a couple of hints. First, I don't pin. Its just easier to go slow rather than pin down all that bias tape. Second, you can make one of these guys out of a 1/4 of a yard of fabric. Its a tight cut and you have to have a really straight cut of 1/4 of a yard. But, it makes it super affordable!


These pictures were taken on the same day as the spring dress pictures. Again, there were very few pictures of her sitting still. But man she loves the empty paper towel roll!


Thanks for the feature!
