Have you ever noticed they usually make store-bought fabric bibs out of very light-colored fabrics?
What better way to show off all these tasty baby-food stains?!
I was tired of the old, stained bibs we have laying around here.
So I went through my donation stack and used a couple of my old shirts to make some bibs that won't show stains as easily.
(OK, maybe I shouldn't have used one that has white stripes, but I really like stripes...)
So fast, and so simple.
And, since it pretty much only took recycled materials, super cheap, too.
I didn't take pictures while I made them, but the process is pretty simple:
- Trace a bib you like, adding a small seam allowance.
- For one bib, cut two pieces of fabric, using the pattern you made in step 1.
- Cut out a simple shape out of a contrasting color, and sew it on the front piece.
- Line up both pieces, right sides together, and sew them together, leaving a small opening in the bottom for turning.
- Turn the bib right side out and press with an iron.
- Top-stitch the sides of the bib.
- Add velcro or snaps to create the closure of the bib.
