How to Sew a Baby Bandana Bib

April 7, 2016
DIY Baby Bandana Bib

These DIY Bandana Bibs (or “Bibdanas) are a stylish alternative to traditional bibs. Not only are they super cute, they’re also great for teething babies. These bandana bibs are a breeze to make! I’ve made at least a dozen so far!  They make a fun gift and they’re a great way to make use of scrap fabric.

Supplies
Cotton (I used woven cotton for the front and plaid cotton flannel for the back*)
*It’s best to use flannel for the back- woven cotton on both sides isn’t absorbent enough
Sew on snaps
Sewing machine

Using the pattern piece, cut out 2 bibs. One in the cotton and one in the flannel.

Place the right sides together

Sew around the entire bib, leaving a 1 1/2 inch opening at the top so you can turn the bib right side out.

Turn bib right side out and iron all around the edges.

Topstitch all around the bib. This will close up the small opening you left earlier.
