Bib or Cape?

I just found out my friend is expecting in November and, even though its ages away, when i saw these bibs at Lemon Squeezy Home, i just could resist making them!
I printed the letters onto some freezer paper and cut them out with a scalpel. I ironed the freezer paper to the bibs and then painted them with fabric paint. Once it was totally dry I peeled off the stencil. The bibs are jersey cotton from John Lewis and are nice and thick so the paint hasnt bled through. FYI towelling bibs dont work as well, the paint bleeds under the uneven fabric. And make sure you use non toxic fabric paint, designed to be washable, new parents dont need anything impractical!
