How to Sew a Baby Bib

make baby bib

When it comes to feeding a baby or toddler, parents know that a bib is invaluable. To keep food and drink from spilling onto your baby’s clothing, you can sew a simple bib yourself.


Draw a rectangle that measures 10.5 inches by 16 inches on the top piece of fabric, using the disappearing ink pen. Draw a semi-circle connecting the two 16 inch long sides at the top of the rectangle. Draw a U shaped hole from the top of the semi-circle. The U should be wide enough to fit your baby’s neck.


Cut the 22-inch by 18-inch fabric in half so that you have two pieces of fabric that measure 11 inches by 18 inches. Put one piece of fabric on top of the other with right sides facing in. Pin the fabrics together with a few pins. Cut out the shape you’ve drawn. It should look like a bib. Pin the fabric together along the edges.


Stitch the two pieces together, along all the sides, leaving a 3/8-inch seam allowance. Leave a 3 or 4 inch gap on the bottom of the bib so that you can turn it right side out.


Turn the bib right side out. Topstitch the hole closed, sewing about 1/4 inch away from the edge all the way around.


Pin each half of the Velcro strip in place at the top of the neckhole. Stitch the Velcro in place.
