Today, I’d like to show you several DIY bandana bibs. And show you how easy it is to make some all by yourself. If you are a beginner sewing enthusiast looking to make something adorable for your child, a cute and stylish bandana bib is the way to go. (Here’s my free pattern and tutorial) Not only easy to make but also cute – and a very useful piece too!
Diy Bandana Bibs
I got tired of searching for new bibs all the time. So I sat down and sewed a few. No pattern, just an idea of how I wanted them to look like. Then, after several good and several bad attempts, it began dawning on me what exactly I needed and which patterns work better and which ones don’t. Now it’s time to invite you to sew some yourself.
I can give you 3 reasons why you will love making these bandana bibs:
- Low-cost: you’ll need a tiny bit of fabrics for making a bandana bib. You can go for zero cost, too: you can simply use an old T-shirt, or a napkin… Or an old towel. Nearly anything.
- Quite simple to make: it’s a simple beginner project, especially if you get a pattern – there are many available on the internet, though it’s good to start with an easy one.
- Every next bib looks nicer 🙂 I need to admit that the first one I made was too small (even for a newborn!) and then several were too loose. And again – one appeared too thin, another not comfortable at all, but then… every single one got better. Now it’s pure FUN, because the main part of making a bib is choosing the color of the fabrics (ok, now I’ll just pretend you don’t already know what’s my favorite 😉
Still not sure yet if it’s worth trying? I promise to make a pdf copy of my favorite pattern (of those I’ve doodled so far) and I’ll give it to you. Soon. Deal? UPDATE: SEE BELOW, IT’S HERE FOR YOU!
