Easy Peasy Bandanna Bibs


So my little girl is almost 4 months old and drooling like crazy now! It's pretty funny that I didn't know what drool bibs were our first time around since baby #1 didn't drool hardly at all!

I went out searching for some cute bibs for her and couldn't find any I liked. I liked the style of the bandanna bibs, but I didn't like the fabric used... It price.

I zipped off to the fabric store a couple of weekends ago and bought the following supplies. I've been able to make 12 bibs so far.

13" of each fabric. I used 3 cotton and 3 flannel cotton pieces.

A pack of snaps (mine say they are for jersey... And there are ones you can get with the tool included that crimps/fastens them down in the fabric)

Spool of white (I picked my fabric so that they would all coordinate fine with white,)

Steps:
I have a rotary cutter and self healing Matt which makes cutting fabric precisely and quickly a breeze.

I cut out 12" squares, then cut those in half to make triangles.

I sewed the triangles right side to right side with one cotton piece and one flannel piece. I left a small opening so that I could turn the triangles right side out.

I used a chopstick to help me turn the fabric right side out. I didn't bother raven seeing them shut since I did top stitches around the edge to finish the sewing.

Then at the end I popped the snaps on. Then that was that. So so easy. Sew easy?! Baha.

Enjoy!
