Pin the two sides of the Velcro to the two sides of the bib. Center the Velcro on the straps.
Sew around the Velcro to secure. You can skip sewing the short side of the Velcro along the raw edge of the fabric.
If doing a pocket fold the pocket piece on the fold line. Pin it to the bottom of the waterproof bib. Baste it on along the raw edge.
Pin the front and back bib pieces right sides together. Sew all around the edge and leave a 4 inch hole for turning. Backstitch when you start and stop.
Notch the outer curves and clip the inner curves. Turn the bib right side out through the hole. Push out the curves and roll out the seams.
Press the bib flat. If using a waterproof bib use a warm iron, press from the back, and use a press cloth! Be careful not to melt your fabric.
