The giraffe and gator bibs are very easy to make. Each bib measures 7” wide (that doesn’t include the ears on the sides of the giraffe bib). The length is 11 1/4” from the top of the bib to the bottom (the length of the bib is 6 3/4” under the neck).

They can be made for girls and boys. They are great for babies and toddlers. The bibs will wash and wear well.

Adorable, easy and functional. I made these bibs for my baby, and have had several people ask where they can be purchased.

LOVE these. They turned out so adorable and made a cute addition to a baby shower gift. Very easy to make and the instructions were perfect.

I have made these bibs but altered them by appliqueing the eyes and nose out of flannel and felt, much easier on a babies face and doesn't pose a choking hazard like the buttons!

I love this pattern! It is so easy to understand. I had trouble with the rick rack though.
