The perfect bib for little ones who are just learning to hit their mouth!
So what makes this bib perfect?

* It is waterproof, faced with vinyl, so no goopy
applesauce is going to leak through.
* It is big to cover all of the chest and belly
* The neck is adjustable so start use at 6 months and keep
using up until two years.
* There is a pocket to catch all the drops for snacking
later! (And the pocket stands away from the bib versus
those sewn flat against the bib so it will actually catch
the mess!)
* Unique design does not even let spilled liquids sneak out
of the pocket.
* The bib pocket unfolds so the corners can be cleaned and
no crunchy, moldy yuck gets left for the next meal.
* Rinse it off in the sink or put it in the washing machine!
* Make 1 or 10 and make it with the exact fabrics you love
because it is a pattern!

This bib pattern was designed with three things in mind; how to make it easy (and quick) for a beginner to complete, functionality and cost. There are almost 30 step by step illustrations and color photos to guide you and lots of helpful tips about sewing with vinyl. (There is no need to buy a special teflon presser foot for this project!) The pattern teaches how to make a bib and how to apply an appliqué for embellishment- the elephant template is included in this pattern! Choose to work with iron on vinyl or regular rolled vinyl, instructions for both are given.

Fabric measurements and layouts are included for maximizing your fabric usage if making just one bib or multiple bibs of the same fabrics. A full size bib pattern and elephant appliqué template are included in the PDF.

*Note: These are downloadable instructions for making a bib. Since it is a download, you will receive this by email and it will also be located in the "My Library" section of your user account immediately after purchase.

This bib is untested by the baby grandson is only 2 months old, but the pattern and instructions are very good. I love the design. I covered quilting cotton with Pellon iron-on vinyl, following the instructions carefully, for the outside and used flannel on the back. It turned out well. I plan to make more when he's eating something other than breast milk.

This pattern is very easy and fast to sew. I love using this pattern for my grandchild as well as making it.

The pattern is very easy to follow and the finished product looks great. I have been looking for something like this ever since I saw my friend with a plastic bib that used the same idea. Clean up is a snap with these bibs! I have also modified the pattern and made the bibs without the pocket. It is now one of my to-go patterns when I make baby shower gifts.
