  • How to make a baby bib. Easy Reversible Bib - Step 1
    Step 1

    First download the template, tape the two pages together, and cut it out. Then use the notes printed on the pattern pages to cut the fabric you need.

    Cut a strip of ribbing 12.5" long and 1.5" wide. Fold it in half right sides together and sew it along the short edge using a 1/4" seam allowance (making a circle out of your ribbing). Set aside.

    To add a peter pan collar (skip this step if you don't want a collar): place two collar pieces right sides together and sew the curved edge with a 1/4" seam allowance, leaving the top open. Clip curves. Turn and press. Repeat with the other collar piece.

    Place collar pieces together on the right side of the main panel you want them to be on, centering the pieces at the lower edge of the neck hole. Baste the pieces in place.

    Place your ribbing seam at the center back of the neck hole and pin around the neckline (right sides facing).

    Zig zag or serge around the ribbing with a 1/4" seam allowance stretching the ribbing slightly as you sew.

    You will now have one main panel with the ribbing attached. Place the second main fabric panel right sides together on top of the first. Pin ribbing right sides together with the main fabric and zig zag or serge it in place.
