I’m loving this DIY 1st birthday bib that I made for Liam using Handmade Charlotte stencils, FolkArt paint, and little bit of sewing.
Chances are you may have a baby Liam too but if not, just swap out the name, or you could use the number “1″ candle alone too, or use some of Handmade Charlotte’s other birthday-themed stencil shapes.
Making your own stenciled DIY 1st birthday bib is easy. I used freezer paper with these stencils because (1) I wanted to see the whole design and once, and (2) I was too lazy to stencil the letters individually, wait for them to dry before adding the next letter, and sweat over the spacing between letters. It is kind of an extra step but for names, I think stencils plus freezer paper works really well.
I’ll also show you how to sew it all up into a cute 1st birthday bib.
Thanks, Handmade Charlotte and Plaid, for inspiring a keepsake happy 1st birthday bib for my sweet, smiley Liam boy.
