Button Bibs


These are some "button bibs" which I created for my husband's friend. He had asked me to make him a set of 4 napkins with his initials & that of his wife on them. He asked that I add buttonholes to the opposite corner of the monogram. He called them "Button Bibs". They were quick & easy to make using a 3 thread flat hem on my serger to finish the edges. I used Embird software to create the monograms & a font that I had purchased some time ago called Script. They stitched out beautifully on my "Ellie". The only problems were caused by my being in too much of a hurry to get them done. I think that they turned out very nice.

What does your DH's friend use for buttons? Or do they pull the napkin corner thru the buttonhole to "fasten" it? I'm assuming these *are* used as bibs, which I could also use, too! Very pretty!

What a great Idea! I followed this link from my daughter-in-laws facebook page, Alison M. I believe she is going to take sewing lessons at St. Lukes UMC. How fun!
