Start by reading the directions that come with your interfacing. You will need to cut the bandana and interfacing to approximately the same size.
Iron interfacing onto the back and trim to exactly the same size. Peel off liner piece from back of bandana. There should be a plastic like coating on your fabric. Remember to follow all instructions that come with your interfacing including ironing times.
Find the team logo or shape of your choice online and use the Silhouette software to trace it. Cut the logo from your bandana. If the logo is simple enough, you can also hand cut. Trim any remaining threads with scissors when removing.
Place the logos onto your surface. In this case I used a package of plain bibs but you can choose to use a shirt or even pants! Just use your iron to adhere the logo to the bib.
Use your sewing machine and a zig zag stitch to go all the way around your applique. This makes the bibs washing machine safe and ready for anything baby can throw at them.
