DIY: Baby Neckerchief Bibs


I'm alway looking for ways to utilise my ever-increasing stash of scrap fabric. These baby neckerchief bibs fit the bill to a T. Make them in an assortment of colours and patterns. They are so cute and practical too: help bub fight the dribble and stay looking cool at the same time!

To make one, you just need a couple of scraps of knit fabric, twice the width of a landscape-oriented piece of A4 paper, and this FREE template that I have whipped up for your personal bib-sewing pleasure:

Cut your two fabric pieces and sandwich right sides together. Pin and sew perimeter, leaving a small gap to turn. (Choose a matching thread, I just used white to better demonstrate for this tutorial).

Turn right side out, using the blunt end of a knitting needle to help push out the corners, press and hand sew the opening closed.


These bibs are designed to simply be knotted at the back. If you want to jazz them up then you could add a cute little applique like this one. 


All you need is a template of your preferred design, a tiny piece of matching/contrasting fabric and a little fusible interfacing to stabilise your fabric. More about applique in my next tutorial... Happy sewing! Leanne xx

  1. This is probably the simplest and easiest way of making a bandana bibs and I think handkerchiefs are the best thing to use for this type of bibs. I love how your bibs turned out. They are all adorable!
