Here’s a sweet set for making baby bibs from a booklet that I have, so adorable! Original description:

These are fascinating to make especially when you have a scrap bag from which to select odds and ends of pretty cotton fabrics. These are not slap-dash affairs; little details, amusing, imaginative add to the fun of making–and to the pleasure of the wearer.

Four projects shown here have appliqued designs. To make the appliques in the easiest way, cut the templates (given below) from cardboard. Cut material slightly larger, then with hot iron press edges of cloth (clipped to make it lie flat) over cardboard piece. If material is hard to handle, baste it to cardboard first, then press–and remove basting threads. Hem, slip-stitch, or blanket-stitch cut-out in place.

Viewing Instructions: You can click each image to view a larger sample size. Templates are at the bottom of the page.

[22]
Story Book House: Gingham in wee pink checks with green bias binding trim. Flowered curtains, red tulips appliqued, stems embroidered. This is improved by lining back with outing flannel.

Crocheted Softy. White with dainty touches of pastel embroidery.

[23]
[24]
I Like Carrots: Crocheted for young carrot eaters–this is a tub lover so beautifully does it launder!

Peter Bunny: Two circles of pink terry cloth edged with pink bias binding. Eyes, carrot appliqued, nose and paw, blue chain stitches. His face is saucer size (6 1/2″), his body, plate size (9″). Each pink ear is faced with white. (Strings sewed to back of ears for 2 1/2″.) Pupils of eyes, blue and white gingham overcast to whites.

[25]
[26]
The Cow Jumped Over The Moon: Yellow, blue and red cow, appliqued to blue denim sky, edged in red bias binding; yellow moon–open at top to catch crumbs. Lower edge of moon is overcast to denim in bright red. Moon is placed on cloth so it will cup slightly. Three stars (of yellow STAR SIX STRAND Mercerized Embroidery Cotton) add to the sky’s atmospheric look.

Jo-Jo the Clown: Red and white striped material appliqued on bath towel with blue stripes. White face and ruff black shoes, hands, appliques with touches of embroidery.
