Baby / Toddler Bibs

I made this bib especially for my daughter as her usual bibs use velcro fastening. The velcro seemed to annoy her quite a lot. She would say "it's itchy on my neck mum". I started looking for different types of fasteners to use. I wanted something that is easy to take off and not too difficult to apply. I was browsing in my favorite craft store the other day and I found this snap lock fitting. That would be perfect for my project I thought!.

So I came up with the idea to make her bibs without binding but decorations around the edges with ric-rac. I traced the pattern from her original bibs and made it slightly larger to allow for the seam on the tracing paper.

For the fabric I began using some scraps until I was confident enough to use my favourite design fabrics. In the future I will try to make a tutorial about this. As long as you can sew a basic blanket you will find it easy peasy:) Of course you need to pay extra attention when you sew the ric-rac. My personal preference is a bigger size for the ric-rac so it's easier to sew around this kind of bib.

I love mixing polka dot fabrics to compliment my designer fabrics as they are so simple and match very easly.
