Cue the western music! The bandana style bibs have been on trend for a few years now and I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to make one!
Seriously, just give the baby one of these bibs and an adorable cowboy hat.
To make a bandana baby bib you will need:
- the printable Bandana Baby Bib pattern
- cotton fabric for the front of your bib
- terrycloth for the back of your bib
- velcro or snaps for your bib’s closure
- rotary cutting set or scissors
- thread, sewing machine, needles, pins
Step 1- Print out the Bandana Baby Bib pattern. Check the little one inch square to make sure the pattern printed correctly. If it did not, then adjust your printer settings.
Step 2- Lay the pattern down on your piece of fabric for the front of your bib with the fabric folded over. Line the pattern up so that the line that should be on the fold is on the fold. Cut out your fabric.
Step 3- Lay your front fabric piece down on top of the terrycloth with the right side down. Pin the top fabric piece down onto the terrycloth and trim the excess from around the edges.
Step 4- Sew around the outside edge of the bib, sewing 1/4 inch from the edge. Sew almost all the way around but leave an opening of a couple of inches or so. Be sure to backstitch a little when you start and stop.
Clip the point of the corner off of the bottom.
Step 5- Use the opening that you left to turn the bib right side out. Press the bib down nice and flat.
Step 6- Pin and sew around the outside edge, sewing about 1/4 inch from the edge.
Step 7- Attach your velcro or snap closures to the straps of your bib. You can make the size of the bib somewhat adjustable depending on where you place your closures, if you add more than one snap, or by putting a loner bit of velcro onto the straps.
And now you have a finished bib! Perfect for catching all that teething drool in style.
