Supplies Needed for your Bandana Bibs:
Learn How To Sew Baby Bandana Bibs
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.
I cut one floral piece of fabric and a striped piece of fabric for the back.
Place the bib pieces on top of each other with right sides together. Pin around the entire bib.
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.
Leave a two-inch opening along one side of the bib for turning.
Trim down the seam allowance along the entire bib excluding the part that has not been sewn.
At the tip of the bib snip the fabric horizontally close to, but not through the stitching.
Turn the bib right side out by gently pulling it through the opening.
Using an awl, create a hole in the fabric half an inch from the finished seam. Repeat on the opposite side.
Place the front of the snap on the front of the fabric and the back of the snap on the back of the fabric. Repeat this step on the other side but in the opposite direction.
Using a set of snap pliers set the snaps in place.
There you have it, an adorable Baby Bandana Bib!
So get started! Bandana Bibs are super trendy for baby showers right now, and I’ll be honest, there is NOTHING more fulfilling than HAND-making something for your glowing friend’s baby shower.
