Neck Tie Bibs and Onesies

Here's a snazzy way to dress up any little man!  This is a simple and quick craft for anyone with a little bit of sewing experience.

You can make a bib if you choose, but I bought my bibs since I
wanted to get right on the applique part... as you may already know, I am impatient and jump from craft to craft constantly.

I made 2 different size "Tie" patterns, one small and one large.  I like the larger one better...

First, I ironed a rectangle of tie fabric onto some Wonder Under and cut out the tie.  Peel off the paper backing and lay the tie in place on top of the bib, being careful that it is straight and exactly where you want it.  I put a piece of fabric on top, to keep from ruining or burning the bib, and ironed the tie to the bib.

Using a contrast or matching thread on top and white thread in the bobbin, I zigzagged all around the edge of the tie and across the bottom of the knot part.  Using the trial and error method, I found the right size stitch to use.  I wanted the stitches close in length but not on top of each other ~ there goes the impatient part again, longer stitch length means shorter sewing time!

I also added a top stitch of the contrasting color around the edge of the bib on some.  You can use a decorative stitch here too but I didn't want any type of "frilly" look.

Using the same procedure, I created my little man some dashing Onesies...  

 Really, does it get any cuter???
