Baby Bandana Bib FREE sewing pattern

This is a Baby Bandana Bib FREE sewing pattern from the designer Heather Handmade.

You can now learn how to make a baby bandana bib with a free sewing pattern. As Heather says – these drool baby bibs are cute to wear and easy to make.

One of the designer’s own babies never spit up a lot, but she was always drooling or just spitting up a little. So Heather was constantly changing her baby daughter’s shirts to keep her dry.

To fix the problem Heather made a bunch of baby bandana bibs. She loved that they were shaped like triangle scarves so they looked cute, and they kept her baby daughter’s shirt dry. She could just switch out a couple of different bibs during the day.

These bibs are so fast and easy to make that Heather would often make a bunch at once so she could give them away as baby gifts!

So what fabric should you use?

Heather prefers using quilting cotton or double gauze. Flannel is the most absorbent, but it’s not that comfortable to wear all day long.

Quilting cotton works great, but sometimes it’s stiff so if it’s a non-direction print she will cut the neckline on the bias. Double gauze is Heather’s favorite because it’s right in between absorbent and soft.

So should you use Velcro, snaps, or buttons for a baby bib?

Heather used to use plastic snaps all the time, but she worries about the snaps falling off and being swallowed by a baby. That’s the same problem with buttons, and doing a button in a buttonhole on a wiggly baby is pretty tricky.

Any fastener will work great for a baby bib, but Heather’s favorite is Velcro. It’s easy to get on and off, it can pull apart if pulled hard, and it’s easy to sew on. But be careful when washing it so that the Velcro doesn’t attach to anything precious in the washer or dryer.
