2. Wash & iron your fabric, fold it and trace the bib pattern on the wrong side. You’ll need two pieces as well as a 40″ piece of double fold bias tape.
3. Pin your two bib pieces right sides facing
Sew along the bottom edge all the way around.
4. Turn your bib right side out and iron it flat. Top stitch around the bottom edge in coordinating thread, or maybe a contrasting thread that matches your bias tape like I did:
5. Fold your pieces of bias tape in half to find the middle:
Note that one side of your bias tape is slightly longer then the other. You want that side on the bottom while you’re sewing so your stitches are sure to grab both edges.
Unfold the bias tape and using the shorter edge, align the inside of it with the edge of your bib and pin the center in place:
Continue to pin all around, but instead of allowing the bias tape to gather, allow your bib to curve, this will make it curve nicely around baby’s body:
Sew in place along the fold in the bias tape:
this is what it looks like from the other side:
6. Now fold the bias tape over the unfinished edge and pin it in place from the top:
Double check it is nicely aligned on the other side and covers your previous stitches:
Making sure the shorter edge of the bias tape is on top, sew close to the edge of the bias tape all the way from one end of the tie, across the front of the bib, to the other end:
See how we caught both sides just right?
Tie the ends of the bias tape in knots and trim.
Love it!! I need to make a stack to stash away for baby showers!

These will be perfect little drool catcher bibs for Quinn. She is a slobbering mess these days, just like her mother.

My enormous head makes the bib look so teeny.

Cute! Where is that fabric from?
I make these all the time but really struggle with my machine jamming while running the stitches strictly through the thin bias tape (on eithe rside of the bib). Any suggestions? I figure it's a tension thing but I honestly don't understand the machine well enough to know whether it needs more or less or what! Help!
Just made one of these – it’s adorable! Thanks 🙂
aww, the pattern has been removed?! Is it located elsewhere to download? email?
