Use this simple, printable baby bib pattern to whip up some awesome and useful homemade baby items. Make your own bibs out of old towels or t-shirts, sweat shirts, or even dish towels! I like to buy french terry fabric and a bunch of fat quarters with some fantastic prints and make these baby bibs as gifts along with some homemade burp cloths. The momma to be will appreciate gifts like these very much!
Those of us who are "Been There, Done That" Moms know that at some point a bib becomes a staple to your baby's wardrobe. Not just for feeding time, but when baby is teething and drooling buckets all day long. Or maybe you just have a baby that tends to spit up ALOT, where a super cute bib can come in handy.
I want to show you how you can make a baby bib easily; make em' stylish, and functional. I have even created a free printable baby bib pattern for you to work with. This bib pattern is designed to print onto 8 1/2" by 11" paper. The pattern itself is bigger than the sheet of paper, so you will need to print it out, trim it, and tape it together.
The other fabric you choose to make this bib with can be decorative. It can really be any kind of fabric you want, although I recommend using something less thick than the terry cloth. I used some simple cotton fabric with a nice bright pattern.
Run a hot clothes iron over the bib to press out the seams. I usually like to go back and stitch an extra seam about 1/4" from the edge. It gives a beautiful finished look, especially if you use a contrasting colored thread.
Lastly you'll need to sew on some sort of closure. I like to use little metal snaps but you could also use sew-able velcro.
