I went to my friend's baby shower this weekend (she is having a boy too!) and I made a few things for her.
She had this fabric turned into a carseat cover...so she gave me the remnants to play around with and I used some of it on bibs.
These bibs are super easy and quick to make. They are also such a cute alternative to ones in the store...and cheaper too!
printed cotton fabric
terry cloth fabric (or a dish towel)
snaps (or velcro)
I started by making a bib template. You can trace a bib you already have...or just draw out a design that you like. I tried my template on my 3yr old daughter to make sure it would fit a baby because I am not the best at making templates!
Once I got the shape I wanted...I traced my template onto the regular fabric and some terry cloth fabric that I found by the yard.
I placed my two bib pieces together with the right sides facing each other and pinned them together.
I sewed all the way around the bib...making sure to leave an opening so that I could flip it right side out.
Once I had it flipped right side out, I pressed it with an iron, and top stitched around the entire bib, sewing my opening shut.
Finally I added some snaps to the top of each one...and that was it! You could also sew on velcro if you prefer. Super simple, cute, and best of all..useful!
I have a lot of the terry cloth material left and I saved my template...so I can't wait to pick out some fabric for our little guy too:)
