Bibs are essential when you have a cute, drooly, smooshy cheeked baby in tow!
And let’s face it… the bibs sold in stores are just not that cute… and cute bibs sold in boutiques are crazy expensive…and I don’t know about you, but I don’t want an ugly bib covering Hollis’s cute outfit , so I decided to make some super cute, reversible baby bibs for her!
Begin by printing out the two pattern pieces:
Line up the dots and tape your two pattern pieces together.
Cut the bib pattern out.
Lay the bib pattern on the fabric of your choice and cut out the bib shape.
Then lay the bib on a coordinating fabric that you want to use for the other side of the bib and cut out the bib shape.
(You will cut 2 of the bib pattern for each bib)
If you want to applique or monogram your bib…
…now is the time.
Or you can add a fun ruffle, ric rac, ribbon, etc!
Have fun with it!
Once you add your fun “décor” to both sides of the bib, pin the bib right sides together, leaving a 2 inch opening at the bottom of the bib.
See the opening?
You will NOT stitch that closed.
Start at one end of the opening and using a 1/4 inch seam allowance, stitch all the way around the bib, stopping at the other end of the opening.
Trim any excess fabric and turn the bib right side out.
Iron the bib.
See the opening?
Now top stitch around the entire bib, which will close the opening at the bottom of the bib.
Add velcro to one side of the bib.
Then flip the bib over and add the other piece of velcro to the opposite side.
(Confused? See next picture)
The velcro should be stitched to the bib like this:
Now you have a super cute bib at an awesome price!
The velcro closure makes putting the bib on and taking the bib off baby easy!
If one side gets drool, spit up, food, etc on it, simply flip bib over and use the other cute side!
Seriously, these bibs are so much fun and are very functional!
Wouldn’t they make a perfect gift for a new baby?!
Gotta love a cute bib on a cute baby!
