Cupcake for a Cowboy


My favorite little cowboy is turning one year old next week.  His name is Sean and his mom, Cherie’ is one of my dearest friends.  I wanted to make him something special for his big day.  How about a bib for him to wear while he eats his birthday cake?

I never made bibs for my own children and now I am wondering why.  I could have made some darn cute ones.  Plus they are easy, fast and cheap.  I would have definitely made a few out of the vinyl coated fabrics available at some quilt shops.  They would be so easy to wipe clean.

To make Sean’s bib, I used a remnant from another project for the chambray.  The cupcake was made from a cowboy fabric charm pack.

It is reversible so it can be used for everyday.  I think the Alexander Henry Cowboy Fabric is beyond cute.


I used an old bib pattern of my mother’s but here is a simple small free bib pattern you could use. Or this Bib looks a lot like the one I made.

The cupcake applique was from a quilt pattern, from Bunny Hill Designs called Party Cakes.  But there is a perfect free cupcake applique available.

Check out the picture of my sweetest niece Chesney wearing a birthday bib for her first birthday.  She is a girl after my own heart and knows a good cupcake when she has one in hand…
