mushroom land smock



Here's a little smock I made recently for the baby. It was a very easy project. To make the pattern, I cut up an old plastic smock that had ripped apart. (If you're interested in the pattern, send an e-mail and I could cut one out for you.) Anyway, this only took about 45 minutes to make. I put elastic around the cuff and bias tape around the neck. I left about eight inches of bias tape on each side of the neck to tie on the smock. This makes a great smock for doing art projects, or for eating really messy food like spaghetti and yogurt.

Melissa,

What a darling smock. I am a huge fan of smocks as my babies always swung their heads around while eating and got food on their shoulders. We only use smocks now.

so sweet!! I love that mushroom fabric! I need to make one of these, as my baby loves nothing more than tearing off her bibs.

I agree with Lynne that this is an excellent alternative to a bib, which always seems too small. My nieces are fond of spreading avocado and oatmeal over their entire bodies and this would help a lot. Maybe it needs a vacuum-sealed hair guard, too. : )
