I found a new sewing love. These bibs are extremely easy to make, useful and ADORABLE! I am excited to say that I am going to be an aunt for the first time! (At least a blood relative.) My sister is having a baby. I’m excited to have a baby to love on that I don’t have to birth or carry in the womb! (Pregnancy is not my favorite thing in the world).
Here’s what you need:
- 1/2 yard of your favorite fabric (flannel or cotton work best) (1/4 yard if you’re doing the smaller size)
- 1/2 yard of terry cloth in the color of your choosing
- white thread
- Pattern: Bandana-Bib-pattern-small Bandana-Bib-pattern-medium Bandana-Bib-pattern-Large
I created these patterns after looking at several blog posts about how to make these bibs. My now one year old used to soak through a onesie in less than an hour when he was between 4-6 months old. You know that annoying drool stage? These things were a complete life saver. Having used them myself, I know they make a great gift! And why have ugly bibs when you can have cute ones?
You could also add another layer of flannel in the middle to make it extra absorbent. basically just cute the two sides out on the fold (one of the fabric, one of the terry cloth). sew them right sides together leaving about a 1 1/2 in opening. turn right side out and iron. Sew a top stitch about. Hand sew opening if necessary. Hand sew snaps or any other desired closure to the two corners. And there you have it!
