Baby Bib Tutorial

So I have seen a lot of different tuts floating around for a baby bib...all really GREAT ones too!  So I figured I'd take a stab at it as well.  I made mine reversible...2 bibs in one!

This is a very basic tut and easy to follow, so I didn't include pics.  But if something isn't quite clear, be sure to email me!

You will need:
2 coordinating fabrics
sewing machine
thread, scissors, etc.
a baby bib that you already have and like the way it fits (that's important)

 Here's a pic of my fabrics I used.

Step 1: So I took two coordinating flannel fabrics and placed the right sides together down on the table.  

Step 2: Then take the bib you have and trace a pattern around it (with the neck open!) using chalk...or eyeball it like I did.  Leave room for the hem (1/4 inch or so).

Step3: Cut our your bib and make sure that the right sided of the fabric are facing one another.

Step 4: Pin and sew up leaving a hole at the bottom to turn right side out.

Step5: Once all sewn up, turn right side out and top stitch your hole closed and all the way around the bib.  *You could do a fancy stitch to add a little interest!

Step6: Cut your velcro pieces (about an inch long works).  Line them up where you want them on your bib.  *Use your existing bib as a reference if needed.

Step7: Sew on your velcro using a tight zig zag stitch and you're all done!  
A custom bib made for your baby by YOU!

Hehe!  Look at him being silly...
