To make a two-sided pattern as shown above, print off two patterns and tape them together. I like to print it off of cardstock for a sturdier pattern that can be used over and over. Make sure to choose the correct size.

Stack two pieces of fabric on top of each other and lay the pattern on top. Pin it in place or use a pattern weight.

Using a pair of scissors or a rotary blade and mat cut around the pattern.

Sew around the bib using a 3/8ths-inch seam allowance. When you reach the point of the bib, lower the needle,  lift the foot and pivot the fabric.

This will help you to create a sharp point.

At the tip of the bib snip the fabric horizontally close to, but not through the stitching.

  2. Thank you for these patterns! I will be making all the baby items for a family member! What is your opinion or have you received any feedback regarding the safest closure to use? I want to ensure the the items I make won’t pose a choking hazard. I have chosen to sew on snaps but may use velcro if the don’t meet my standards. Take care!

  3. I am planning on making some of these for my 3 month old granddaughter. She has a few that were gifts and we love them on her, they are soft and comfortable for her drooly mouth. I was going to buy some and then thought how easy they would be to make.

    1. Yes. I always use flannel for baby bibs as it is very absorbent for dribbles and spills. And the edges that are on babies sensitive neck get softer and softer with each wash.
