A baby bib! Now, this is not just any bib, this is the BEST bib. What makes it so special? It's is reversible, covers a lot more then a regular bib and is really adorable. When your baby is drooling like mad they can still be cute as a button and dry. This is the perfect project to whip up for that shower or new baby gift, or even if you’ve just discovered you have a messy eater. I received one of these as a gift years ago and since I've never seen them in a store I thought why not just make a tutorial. Also Please note we are not professional pattern makers so follow along as best you can.
What You’ll Need:
Two coordinating Fat quarters (The birds are from my stash and the flowers are from the shop)
One package of Double Fold Bias Tape
Sewing machine and thread
Bib pattern Click Here and print. *The original pattern I used is no longer available. Me and my sweet friend Danielle have done our best to recreate the pattern piece. Print and tape together. Let me know if there are any problems. You'll notice I traced and cut my pieces on the fold. If you wish to do that just fold the pattern in half.
Make sure your fabric is washed and dried (this is for a baby and will be getting a lot of use)
Trace the pattern on the fold of both fat quarters
Cut the bias tape into two 10inch pieces one 34inch piece and one 32inch piece
Open up both pattern pieces and put them together wrong sides facing.
Take one 10inch piece and sandwich and pin the edge of the armhole fabric between the bias tape. Do the same on the other side and stitch close to the edge being careful not to let the fabric slip out from the bias tape.
Step 5:Take the 32 inch piece of bias tape and fold it in half to find the middle. pin this to the middle of the bib. Take one end of the bias tape and pin it the end of the shoulder. Do the same at the other shoulder. Pin all the way around. Start at one shoulder and stitch all the way around to the other shoulder.
Finally fold the 34 inch piece of tape to find the center. Pin this to the center of the neckline and then pin up the rest of the neck. Start sewing at one end of the strap and sew all the way down, around the neckline, and up the other strap. Knot each end and voila you’ve got the cutest little baby bib!
