I sewed on Velcro for my closure and added a cute star applique from contrasting fabric. Lastly, I snipped the entire bib edge close to the zig-zag stitching, I also snipped the bottom edge of the contrasting fabric. I washed and dried the bib which gave me the fraying effect.

Western Blue Jean Baby Bib
This is a great way to recycle some of those old jeans. I always have a stash of out dated or outgrown blue jeans and just love to recycle with them. Since they are a nice weight I find they make wonderful baby bibs. Here is how I made the western style baby bibs. I started by cutting up one seam of the jean leg. I opened the leg and placed the center of my pattern over the center of the uncut leg seam. I pinned and cut out my baby bib. Next I placed my contrasting fabric (right side up) over the baby bib (right side up), matching the corner of the contrasting fabric to the center bottom of the bib. I pinned the contrasting fabric in place and cut along the edge of the blue jean fabric, using my baby bib as my guide or pattern for the contrasting fabric. Next I used a zig-zag stitch and machine stitched approximately ½ inch all around the bib edge. I used the same stitch and tacked down the contrasting fabric along the front bottom using the same ½ inches allowance.
