One of the fastest and most useful gifts for a baby are these cute triangle baby bibs that you see in the stores for a lot of money! But they don’t cost hardly anything to make at home. Just one fat quarter, some batting scraps and some velcro and you have the cutest little drool bibs that will actually get used.
We have several other handmade gifts to make and give to baby in our BABY tutorial section but I realized we have never included these bibs that I make all the time. So, the last set I made I took a few pictures for you so you could see how to make them too!
Let’s get started! Here is what you will need to gather to get started.
- 1 Fat Quarters of fabric (or 1/2″ piece) for each bib
- velcro (I like the sew on velcro circles)
- sewing machine
- 1/2 yard of batting (enough for 4 bibs)
- iron and ironing board
Step #1- Cut your fat quarter into one 12″ square. Press flat. Repeat for your batting.
Step #2- Then cut your squares diagonally from the top left to the bottom right corners. Repeat for your batting.
Step #3- Take your two triangles and cut measure in one inch from either side and mark a line down. Cut on this line. Repeat for your batting.
Step #4- Lay out your 2 bibs with right sides facing each other. Place one piece of batting on top.
Step #5- Sew all the way around the perimeter of the bib using a 1/4″ seam allowance and leaving a 1-2″ opening to turn the bib.
Step #6- Clip the bottom triangle and then turn triangle bib right side out. Use a point turner or blunt scissors to poke out corners until smooth.
Step #7- Press the entire bib flat and turn the open ends to the inside.
Step #8- Top stitch around the exterior of the bib enclosing the opening you used for turning.
Step #9- Stitch velcro onto each ends of bib for closures.
And you are done! These bibs are great because they can also double as a bandana for a medium sized pup!
