Hi friends! Today Jacinda has a quick baby bib tutorial that doesn’t take any time at all.
It’s a great way to use up smaller remnants of fabric. She made a bunch because, let’s face it, if you have a baby, you can never have enough bibs.
First, cut out your fabric. You can cut it any size/shape you want. Mine is approximately 10″ wide by 13″ long. Then I used a small bowl to cut an opening in the top for the neck hole, about 3″ in diameter. Cut two for each bib. I used two pieces of cotton but for more absorbency, feel free to add a layer of terry or other absorbent material between the cotton or as the back fabric. I’ve used old dishtowels for the backing in the past and it works great.
You can sew Velcro onto the neck pieces if you want, but I wanted to make tie bibs so I slightly burned the ends of ribbon so it wouldn’t fray. Cut each piece of ribbon about 10″ long.
Then place the ribbon like so in between the two layers, with the fabric right sides together. Pin all the way around the bib, making sure to keep the ribbon ends between the fabric and away from the seams so you don’t stitch them into the seam.
Sew around the whole bib, leaving an opening for turning on the bottom or side of the bib.
Pink the edges of the bib with pinking shears.
Turn right side out (a chopstick helps), press and topstitch around entire bib, starting with the turning hole.
There you have it! A super cute tie bib for your little one!
So easy I made a big stack of them!
Below are a couple I made in the past with Velcro closures and some embellishments. This is a great chance to get creative; add ribbons or applique shapes onto the top piece of each bib before sewing it together.
Have fun, and as always, you can find me at yellow cloth Happy Stitching!
