I made two of Sweet Pea's Machine embroidery baby bibs recently for my grand niece's new baby boy. In the hoop machine embroidery is popular now. So many things can be completed right in the hoop. The largest bib here was made with my Baby Lock Ellisimo and the 8" x 12" hoop. The Medium size was made in the 8" x 8" hoop. The back of the bib did require sewing at the machine. I used flannel for the backing. KAM snap closures.
As a reference for sizing the largest bib is pictured here on a 20" doll.
I also did the strip bib in the hoop. It is slightly smaller. Medium size.
