When I’m in a pinch for a last-minute baby shower gift, the internet is a lifesaver with thousands of patterns ready to be downloaded and printed. Instead of printing to paper, I print my favorite patterns on StitchnSew EZ Quilt Block Sheets so I can use them over and over again. The sheets are transparent, 100% polyester, machine washable, and printable on inkjet printers. Just load a StitchnSew EZ Quilt Block Sheet into your printer, press “print”, and it’s ready to use. So easy! For my quick baby shower gifts, I sewed a couple dribble bibs and a burp cloth…both are available for downloading.

To make Catch That Dribble! bib pattern by Carol Swift of Just Let Me Quilt:
Last Minute Baby Shower Gift Instructions:
Step 1: Print Catch That Dribble! bib pattern using Stitch n Sew EZ Quilt Block Sheets
Step 2: Pin pattern to fabric. Cut on the solid line.
Step 3: Use arrows to mark openings. With right sides together, sew 1/4″ seams around edges leaving an opening between arrows for turning.
Step 4: Turn bib inside out. Tuck seams at the opening to inside; press seams flat. Topstitch 1/8” from edges making sure to catch all seams. Aurifil Thread 50 wt 1103 and 2692 were perfect for stitching these together!
Step 5: Use Fabric Fuse to glue Velcro to bib front and to bib lining on opposite sides. Let dry and sew around edges of Velcro. Or if using snaps, apply as directed on package.

Optional: Adding Heat n Bond Fleece Fusible High Loft to the burp cloth gives it a little extra padding. Doesn’t’ that purple Oliso look beautiful…it’s so fun to iron with!
HeatnBond Fleece Fusible High Loft Instructions: Cut Fusible Interfacings per pattern instructions. Pre-heat iron to wool (medium heat) setting with steam. Place the rough side of the interfacing onto the back (wrong side) of the material to be bonded. Cover with a light, dry pressing cloth. Press and hold iron with medium pressure for 10-15 seconds. Repeat by lifting iron to the new area and pressing, slightly overlapping previous area until entire surface is bonded. Allow pieces to cool. If more ironing is needed iron an additional 5 seconds from the front of the project.
You’re going to love using Stitch n Sew EZ Quilt Block Sheets for printing your patterns. They’re amazing for paper piecing, too! For bigger projects, tracing your patterns on ThermOWeb Stitch n Sew Pattern Material is the way to go. It comes by the yard and measures 58½” wide…perfect for clothes patterns!
