DIY Baby Bandana Bib
August 27, 2014 at 4:52 am 0
I don't know about all of the other chic mamas but since Willow started teething it has been nothing but water works over here. I am always looking for more modern bibs for her that are a chic accessory and practical at the same time.  I made a quick stop at a craft store and picked up some cute patterns to make bandana bibs for her and her little friends. They turned out super cute, help with her drooling situation and keep her dry (well for at least 5 minutes!).   Bandana1 Gather your supplies: -Fabric of your choice (I used an assortment here). -Something to secure the bib, I used snap buttons. You can also use velcro which is an easy alternative. -Sewing machine or needle and thread -Fabric Scissors Bandana2 I cut my fabric into 11x11 squares. Depending on how chunky your baby is you can make them bigger. One square will make one bib, so if you want the same pattern on the front and back of the bib you only need to cut one square per bib. Here I wanted the grey fabric on the inside of the bib, and chose the patterned fabric for the outside of the bib. Each bib will require two identical pieces. Cut square corner to corner to create your triangle. Bandana3 Fold your triangle again. Mark a line one inch into bib. Bandana4 Cut bib along line to contour the neckline of the bib just like above. Bandana5 Pin your two pieces together inside out (meaning the sides you don't want anyone to see will be facing out at this point). I also trimmed the ends of my bib to get rid of excess fabric so it wouldn't bunch at the back the baby's neck. Sew around the edges of the bib using a 1/2 seam allowance. Make sure to leave at least a two inch gap unsewn. This will allow you to turn the bib right side out. Once bib is right side out, pin your 2 inch gap closed and sew to finish. Final step sew your snap buttons,or add your velcro to the two ends of the bib.
