sailboat bib

I made another bib for our nephew by sacrificing my sailboat sleep shorts found at a garage sale. I was planning to replace the elastic and keep them as shorts, but then decided they didn’t fit well enough to be fixed.


I used the trusty Shwin&Shwin bib pattern but changed it up to add some contrast at the top since there was only so much fabric in the shorts. I used navy fabric for the top pieces and back of the bib and topstitched the whole thing in navy.


It’s the boldest thing I’ve made for the new baby color-wise and I like it. Boy fabric is hard to come by, so cutting up the shorts was an easy choice. I think it’s just as well that the fabric will be out in the world instead of just lounging around my house. As previously mentioned, I really didn’t need anymore sleep shorts. 🙂
