DIY.. Applique A Letter On A Baby Bib
On Monday, I shared my baby bib pattern. I have a friend’s baby shower coming up, so I decided to make another bib. This time, I’m going to applique the first letter of the baby’s name on the front. The pattern is in two pieces, so you’ll need to tape the paper together. Check back in on Friday for an even EASIER matching burp cloth and bib.
What Stitch do I use for applique?
The double blanket stitch, which takes two stitches on the horizontal and two on the vertical portion of the stitch, is my go-to stitch for machine appliquu00e9, and some of my quilter friends have even created a dance to demonstrate the motion that the sewing machine needle travels when making this stitch.

Can you applique with a regular sewing machine?
All you need is a sewing machine and the zigzag or satin stitch, which allows you to apply a motif without turning under the raw edges. The zigzag or satin stitch is used to bind the edge while also attaching the appliquu00e9 pieces.
How do you sew fabric on first?
Stitching in Splits
- Bring the needle up through the back of the fabric.
- Take it down a stitch length away.
- Bring the needle back up through the center of the previous stitch.
- Take the needle down half a centimeter away from its current position.
How do I stop my applique from fraying?
If you don’t want the appliquu00e9 fabric to fray too much, stitch very close to the edge; if you want a more ragged edge, leave a larger gap. Stitch all the way around your appliquu00e9 shape.
How do you finish applique edges?
Pin a layer of tulle over your appliquu00e9 block and stitch around the edges with fine matching thread or invisible thread. This edge-finishing technique leaves no stitches in the appliquu00e9 fabric, making it a good choice for delicate or fragile shapes.
What material do you use to make burp cloths?
13 yard flannel fabric per burp cloth (44u201d-45u201d wide fabric) (Flannel is the key here, so don’t buy cotton fabric. Spit up will just run off of cotton burp cloths and/or soak through to your clothes, which is gross. The flannel fabric will absorb the spit up and actually work better after each washing!)
What is the best fabric to use for burp cloths?
So, what’s the best fabric for burp cloths? Cotton chenille is the best fabric for absorbent burp cloths I’ve found, and it’s far superior to any other combination when combined with a terry cloth layer for absorbency.
