Finding a unique gift for a new mom can sometimes be hard. I found one of these bibs and fell in love with it. I needed more but they were had to find. Little ones can really make a mess. It seems like bibs only make it through one kiddo. I discovered fingertip towels are the perfect size. So now with each new little bundle I make a few new ones. Just so they get something new. You can never have to many bibs right??
Pull Over Baby Bib Tutorial
Fingertip Towel ( I got these at Target for $2 each.)
Begin by folding top of towel down about 6 inches.
Use piece of paper to make 5 inch circle. Fold circle in half. Lay straight edge on folded edge. Cutout circle.
Take ribbing and cut a strip 12 x 2.5. Make sure the ribbing stretches the length of your strip. Inmy photo I cut the ribbing on the fold. So I cut it 6×2.5 on the fold.
Stitch short ends of the ribbing.
Divide towel and ribbing into 4 equal parts.
Pin towel and ribbing together. If you need to divide into more equal parts go for it.
Sometimes it makes sewing it easier.
As you stitch the ribbing and towel together pull ribbing to the same length as the towel.
Take it one section at a time.
After stitching neck either serge the edge or zig zag around edge to give it a finished look.
(I missed the picture for this step)
Once you have finished the edges do a top stitch around the edge of the neck line.
Your done! Quick and easy. A great gift for a new mom.
This is the perfect bib for my new little guy. He is not quite ready for solids but when he is he will be sporting several of these!
This one fits my baby and my 3 year old. I have seen these made with hand towels and dishcloths for older children or disabled adults.
I was thinking these would be totally cute using fabric and the silhouette for some cute appliques for plain towels.
