Bandana Bib : Tutorial

This weekend I made a bandana bib for my son. He is quite a drooler and would probably drool for a while. As he is too old to wear regular bibs all the time, bandana bib does the job and it looks more like  a stylish scarf. So, instead of buying anymore bandana bibs, I decided to make few on my own. I got some fabric in nice boys prints, one of them being the dinosaur one, ofcourse.

Stuff you would need:

  • Fabric for the front of bib. I chose flannel as it absorbs very good 
  • Fabric for lining, preferably, waterproof cloth. The fabric for lining the cloth diapers should also work. 
  • Thread for sewing
  • Sewing machine
  • Scissors
  • Measuring tape

How To:

Step 1: Cut a triangle(13*13*17) from the flannel and lining fabric, both of same size.

Step 2: Place both the triangles with wrong sides together and fold around 1/2 inch of both the fabrics together on the back side and sew it on all 3 sides.  

Step 3: Attach velcro : With the front facing you, add 3 small squares of rough side of velcro on the right side of the bandana.

Step 4: With the back side of bib facing you, add a strip of fuzzy side of velcro on the right side.

Step 5: Bandana bib is ready for your little one.

I would make them bigger than this as I made some for my new Grandson and at 4 months, they are too small.
