Traced around a bib that fitted well. This picture indicates the dimensions in inches on my cutting mat.
Traced this shape onto one piece of flannel and one piece of polar fleece and then stitched, right sides together, from one side of the neck around to almost the other side of the neck (leaving 1-2″ opening). Pulled the fabric through the opening, poked all of the edges out and then stitched all away around again, making sure to close the gap around the neck. Then added the press studs, simply using a hammer.
For the front of the bibs I used various patterned flannels, because flannel is good at soaking up liquid ie. drool. Loved these elephant print flannels I got from Etsy (small print is from Riley Blake’s Oh Boy collection and large print is by Rae Hoekstra for Cloud 9).
For the back of the bibs I used white polar fleece from GJ’s Discount Fabrics. The polar fleece is another good choice for insulating bubs from any potential dampness on the upper layer.
Birch Soft Touch Snap Fasteners in silver and white, also from GJ’s.
Order from chaos?
So easy to make, bubs doesn’t mind wearing them and they keep him dry and catch all of his teething drool – Yay!
I also love my new, simple yet custom-made labels from ananemone on Etsy (see last picture).
