Malikoo Helps You Make an OMGbaby Gift That is Sew Perfect!

OMGmothers who love to make homemade gifts for their OMGchildren will adore this Thai Bib from sewing master Marie-Emilienne of the new company Malikoo.

This hand-stitched bib has a special Asian touch that your OMGchildren and their parents will love!

Here’s what you need:

  • cotton chiffon
  • a piece of Velcro
  • thread in a color that matches the chiffon for the sewing machine
  • embroidery thread in a contrasting color

Here’s what you do:

  1. First, dye the fabric.
  2. Then, cut 4 to 6 times as much chiffon as you will need for the bib pattern. For example, I cut an equal amount of fabric 4 times.
  3. Sew all of the layers together. Leave 1 cm of fabric beyond the seam, and leave an opening of 7 cm on one side.
  4. Turn all of the layers inside-out.
  5. Close the opening by hand.
  6. Then use the embroidery thread to stitch the vertical stripes. Make sure you pull the thread as you stitch in order to create small gathers.

What a great project for your OMGchildren!
