These bibs are very easy to make! Instructions are included to make one style of bib that can be embellished with six different baby animal appliqués. Each bib measures 7” wide by 7 1/2” long. The bibs are made from cotton fabric with a layer of fleece sandwiched between the front and back to soak up spills (fusible fleece, cotton batting or flannel can be used between layers in place of fleece). The appliqués on the sample bibs are made from cotton and fleece fabrics which make them very soft! Appliqués can be made from all cotton fabrics if preferred. Onesies, t-shirts, burp cloths, etc. can be embellished with the appliqués.

This 8 page PDF e-pattern includes full size patterns, materials list, detailed instructions written in English, and clear step-by-step photographs.

Thank you for such a great idea. I've also used the animal faces on a number of other projects. T-shirts, pillows and more. Very versatile
