How to make a Bib neckpiece


Hello all! Hope you having a great week so far? I know I am J well, asides the too few hours the days seem to have.
So The tutorial we going to be having today is on how to create a neckpiece using fabric buttons and a minimal amount of beads and trimming, although I prefer to use more of the beads and trimming when making mine. With a  bib neckpiece, trust me – u can jazz up a simple outfit  ‘just like that!’ so without further ado, let’s get right to it.






you'll require:
fabric buttons


scraps of fabric




trimming (optional)



now, out of nothing but sheer laziness, i'll show how to create the 'foundation' and then continue with a previous one I already had sewn because i really can't get on a machine right now :-)


they look like this basically after being sewn/before being embellished or accessorized - i'l be making use of the pink.





and from scratch.... fold a square piece of fabric in two, measurements would be determined by what size you actually want.




cut out a piece for the 'neckline'



cut a second piece which would act as the interfacing



iron on some stay to ensure thicknes 
after this, u sew up the bottom curve all the way up, and insert string at the top. Please have a look at the finished ones above.

this is what it should look from the inside out, well, if you used white stay of course :-)



then you begin sewing on your buttons


roll up your fabric scraps thus...

and stitch to your bib, it should look this way




same goes for the trimming, only you roll it up in a circle

after you've stitched them all on - beads, buttons, fabric rolls, you should have something like this..notice the top is unfinished






stitch it up neatly in a hem and cover up with trimming or fabric which ever you want. I normally use decorative stitches though but they all serve the same purpose of giving a neat finish.




and here's our finished bib!!! have fun making yours and be sure to post pics! would love to see!



here's one I made recently...no buttons involved tough! :-)




xoxo,
Onnari.

I can see that bib will look so good with a white t shirt and a flared out short pink skirt.

You're absolutely right, and could even step it up a notch with a cropped jacket!
