I recently hosted a baby shower for a dear friend and since this is her third baby, we wanted to keep the activities simple and (as experienced moms know) functional! So instead of the cutesy baby shower games, the moms in attendance banded together to make cute and chic bib bandanas for our friend’s baby girl. This is a super simple project that results in a stylish and useful gift to take home. In my opinion, you can never have too many bibs!
Easy DIY Baby Bandana Bibs – Materials:
– Sewing machine
– Thread, scissors
– Fabric (we love these pretty fabrics from Stitcherie)
– Iron-on Velcro closures
If you already have a bandana bib at home you can trace it as a pattern or use this free pattern from Craftsy which is what we used.
Step 1. Trace one side using the pattern on your fabric and one side on your terry cloth fabric.
Step 2. Pin the two pieces of fabric wrong side up. Sew along the edges with a 1/4″ allowance, leaving an opening.
Step 3. Trim any excess fabric with scissors. Reverse the fabric through the opening you left.
Step 4. Stitch the opening to close it up. You can use your machine for that as well.
Step 5. Follow the instructions on your Velcro closures and iron them onto the bib. You’re done!
Everyone at the shower had a fantastic time making these bibs, including the mama-to-be. They make an adorable gift to take home and we can’t wait to see the baby wearing them!
