This PDF downloadable pattern comes in only ONE SIZE, about 6-12 mos, and only ONE STYLE, a bib that uses snap tape on each side. You can find all the instructions for cutting and sewing it in the baby bib free pattern and tutorial.
I made these with some snap tape that I had on hand which make them really fast to sew up. You don’t have to sew any buttons or snaps to get this bib to stay on. I love using snap tape because the snaps are already attached.
The tricky thing about making baby bibs is using the right fabric. You want it to be absorbant without being too thick. You want it to relax without being too lightweight. I found a good middle by using quilting cotton on one side and flannel fabric on the other side. The cotton fibers of both fabrics make the bibs comfortable and absorbent, but it isn’t too thick. I think cutting the fabric so that the bias goes across the top of the bib makes it the softest around the face.
These make great gifts because you can quickly make several. It’s easy to make them for either a baby boy or a baby girl depending on the fabric, and you can go wild with the coordination of the fabrics! I loved using a fabric with “baby” written across it for my baby to wear. This is a really fun way to use all those cute fabrics scraps! You could match your babies outfit with their new bib!
