Babies go through bibs like nappies… well, almost! First it’s all the spit-up, and then as they start solids it gets even more colourful. They’re very quick to make yourself! All you need is some cute fabric, some flannel, terry towelling or fleece and some snaps or velcro, then pick your pattern:
Clover and Violet have a great baby bib tutorial and pattern for your standard size and shape. I used it to make this bib, although you can see that I’m yet to add a closure as I can’t find my snaps pliers!
If you’re wanting to use laminated cotton for wipeable bibs, especially useful for solids, Ann Kelle has some great tips for working with laminated cotton.
All these options are very customisable – piece two fabrics together for the top, applique an initial, use contrasting thread to top stitch, add some ric rac trim in between the seams to create a fun edging! Get creative!
