I made several baby bibs using the pattern here. It’s a good set of instructions and they include a pattern that you can print out.
The website also gives you the option of purchasing fabric kits (including front fabric, back terry cloth, snaps, and thread). Each fabric kit has enough materials for four bibs.
I used fabric fat quarters (they were on sale) for the front of each bib, and terry fabric for the backs. I got two bibs for every fat quarter. The terry cloth is great for the back, (as was recommended on a website I came across, sorry, can’t think of the name) because you can use the terry for a washcloth after the meal. Plus, it makes the bibs more absorbent. I want these bibs to be usable for both feeding and drooling during the teething stage.
The bib pattern prints on two pages. You cut out the pattern and tape the two pieces together. You can print the pattern from here.
Next, layer a fat quarter (face down) and the terry cloth. Trace the pattern.
After sewing the bib in the photo above, I decided to make the bibs a bit bigger and longer, so I started sewing outside the line.
Check back next week for Part 2!
