Remember my post here about my Travel Bib? Here's a little recap of the features:
Well, here' s the much anticipated tutorial.
This tutorial is meant for personal use.
Please do not sell Fold N Go Bibs made from this tutorial.
Rounding up Materials & Making the Pattern
Fabric: This bib does not require a lot of fabric so you probably have enough on hand. The front, back, and pocket could each be cut from 11 x 14 squares (make sure they coordinate).
Bias tape: a few scraps will work because you only need a total of 4” (with an option of using another 9” for the pocket) **you could easily make your own by cutting a strip of coordinating fabric & either using a bias tape maker (I totally recommend buying one. I have a cheapy from JoAnns. It was like $5) or iron it in half length-wise and then iron each side in so it touches that center line.
Snaps: 2 sets (you could probably make do with Velcro if you don’t have snaps)
Basic sewing notions & sewing machine
Sewing the Bib
Mark your pocket lines. Fold the pocket piece in half and iron so that you have a line down the center. Measure 2” out on either side of the center line and mark 2 vertical lines (these are for the 3 compartments). The lines I made were hard to see so I marked them in red so you could see where they go.
Now pin the pocket piece to the back piece of the bib & sew down those 2 lines you drew.
Once you’re done sewing, trim the edges & clip the corners & around the neck & straps. I use pinking shears on those parts. Then turn it right-side out pushing out the corners. Then iron it flat. **Do NOT trim anything by the opening where you did not sew because you want some fabric there to make it easier to sew shut.
Add snaps to the neck straps & the little ‘wings’ and you’re done! Go find an infant spoon & a travel pack of wet ones (or an infant wash cloth) to stick in the pockets!
