A quick and easy sew to make a bunch of cute bandana bibs for your little one. It makes a great gift as well!
- Flanelette or towelling fabric
- Cotton fabric
- Thread in complimentary colour
- Existing bib to trace
- Kam snaps
- Find your favourite banana bib and trace around it on a piece of paper or cardboard, adding a 1/4 inch all around for your seam allowance.
- Mark your pattern onto both of your fabric pieces and cut them out. At this point I also like to find a round cup and trace around a picture that I like on the flannelette fabric to use as a feature for the front of the bib.
- If you’re adding the flanellete to the front of your bib, stitch it onto the front of the bib now wherever you. I do this using a wide zigzag stitch with stitches close together to get a nice finish around the edge and prevent fraying.
- Put the cotton and flannelette right sides together and pin.
- Stitch around the outside of the bib using a 1/4 inch seam allowance, leaving a gap of 2 inches for turning. Trim corners and clip curves.
- Turn the bib right side out and iron, being sure to iron your turning hole inside the bib with a clean edge.
- Top stitch around the edges of the bib, beginning with the turning hole to close it.
- Add Kam snaps to the back of the bib so you can clip it onto your baby, and you’re done!
If you don’t have a bib to trace, you can find plenty of free patterns online. Spoonflower has a good free one.
