Baby Bib Tutorial

Having a new baby in the house is a sweet time in life. There’s nothing more exciting than welcoming a child into the world. At the same time, having a new baby around is also one of the messiest experiences in many households.

Between the drool and spit-up, which are practically impossible to avoid, keeping up with bib changes can be daunting. Instead of investing too much in store-bought brands, why not try a DIY bib that’s customized and comfortable for your little one?

This DIY bib doesn’t take long to create and promises to be a lifesaver. It’s so simple to create that you might find yourself tempted to design an entire collection. In fact, making a bunch of bibs this way doesn’t even require a sewing machine if you’re not comfortable using one!

Materials You’ll Need

Life with a baby doesn’t come with a lot of free time. That’s what makes this quick project so great! You’ll only need the following to get started:

  • Knit fabric
  •  Print pattern
  • Fusible interfacing scraps
  • Pins
  • Sewing machine or needle and thread
  • Fabric scissors
  • Snaps

Once you have everything gathered, it’s time to get going.

Step-by-Step Instructions

1.Print the bib pattern

2. Cut three to four layers of knit fabric following the pattern dimensions.

3. Cut out small squares of interfacing scraps measuring approximately half an inch to three-quarters of an inch.

4. Fuse the interfacing to the wrong side of each layer where you want the snap to be positioned.

5. Layer all of the knit fabric pieces together. Be sure the raw edges are aligned.

6. Pin all of the bib layers together.

7. Head to the sewing machine and stitch around the entire bib. There’s an option here to sew by hand using a needle, thread, and zig-zag stitch if that’s preferred.

8. Attach the snaps to the top of the bib.

9. Wash the bib so the edges curl up.

After washing, the bib is officially ready to be worn!
