With the arrival of grandchild number three it was time to make some more baby bibs. Searching the web I came across this fabulous bandana bib pattern and it was free. I loved making these very simple but highly absorbent bibs.
Using the pattern above I have made about 16+ bibs in all sorts of left over fabrics. They are super quick to make and my daughter loves them. She tells me they are the best bibs she has ever used as they last longer than most before becoming too damp. I think this is because the top layer has more fabric than the backing layer & this allows the air to circulate through the top fabric causing a drying effect.
This pattern also has a wee pleat either side on the neck edge and does not require super accuracy but this pleat allows for more fabric and a nice fold effect to happen. Anyway we both love them!
For my backing I used towelling but I have read that you can use a range of other absorbent fabric. For the front of the bibs I used cotton fabrics from my stash.
There are only 2 seams to sew to create these lovely bibs and one of those is the top stitching that also closes over the opening where you turn the bib out the right way - so super simple and very quick!!
