As you can imagine, I have a BUNCH of extra fabric lying around so I decided to make some Baby Bibs. One of my all time favorite craft bloggers, Jill (Homemade by Jill), has an awesome template. I figured, why re-invent the wheel, right? So, I used Jill’s template and all I did was add a few inched of length. If you have ever seen my son eat, you know why I added a few inches! I added about 2.5 inches to be exact. I also saw some hand towels in the $1.00 section of target that were really cute, so that is what I used for the front of these bibs. I used Velcro for the closure. (Note, no I do not dress Finn in pink cupcake bibs, this is for his friend’s 1st Bday!)
You can read Jill’s tutorial but it is really simple:
You trace your template out on both your front and back fabrics.
Then you put right sides together, pin them and sew all the way around leaving a 1″ opening on one side to flip.
Flip them inside out and press. Then sew all the way around the edge for a finished look!
Now, stick your Velcro on the “neck” part and sew all the way around it and then sew an “X” in the middle.
And in about 20 minutes, you have “his and hers” Baby Bibs… thanks Jill for the template!!
