These oversized spaghetti bibs were a great find.
« on: April 27, 2009, 12:25:49 PM »
I found three of these wonderful oversized
spaghetti bibs at a yard sale. Since
three does not my family make - I decided
a few more were necessary. The original bibs
had the word spaghetti embroidered. Since I
hate to sew I decided to make more bibs the
lazy cheap  way.
   
   
Here are the instructions to make a set of bibs from a pair of cast off jeans.
  • Cut the hem off each pant leg. Cut 25" up from the bottom of each leg.
  • The outside seam  of the leg will become the center of the bib.
  • Cut the leg open and then cut it to a width of 16" across.
  • Round the bottom edges and taper to the top similar to the
    bib photo.
  • Cut a large oval shape to form the neck opening. I cut my neck
    opening 3" down from top center seam - the opening was about
    9" long and 3 1/2" at the widest point.
  • The center back seam can be cut open and later a button or
    velcro closure can be added or leave seam uncut and slip bib over
    head.
  • Make slits into all the edges of the bib about 1" apart and 1/2" deep
  • Throw the bib into the washer and dryer - this will give it a nice fringe.
  • Paint the word spaghetti on the bib with fabric paint or fabric markers.
    Or if you're feeling artistic an illustration of the Leaning Tower of Pisa would
    look great
Here's my finished bib.
