How to Sew a Baby Bib
Welcome to the first Twizzlez blog post and tutorial video!
Making cute baby bibs is a great idea leading up to the birth of your baby or perhaps a friend’s baby. I sell these bibs at the market stalls I attend and about half the people who buy them are buying for baby shower gifts or presents for friends. The bibs are reversible and adjustable so they can fit the child for longer. The Twizzlez bib pattern is so easy and quick to make you will want to make a whole set!
As I say in the video I only use cotton fabrics, this is because I find the polyester fabrics are not as absorbent at catching those spills and dribbles, the polyester seems to repel moisture and I find the droplets sit on top of the fabric. I use fabrics such as plain cottons, cotton jersey, cotton corduroy and cotton flannel.
If you wanted to jazz up the design if your using plain fabrics you could applique a design on the front of the bib to make something special and unique.

Twizzlez Baby Bib Pattern- 1cm (0.39”) Seam Allowance is included
38cm (15”) cotton fabric
9cm (3.5”) of 16-20mm (0.62-0.78”) wide sew on hook and loop tape
Method of Construction
1. Cut out the two sides of the bib.
2. Round the corners of the hook and loop tape. I do this because the square edges of hook and loop tape tend to be quite pokey and are not nice on little ones soft skin. See my video if you’re unsure what to do here.
3. Pin the hook and loop tape in place on the bib.
4. Sew the hook and loop tape on to the bib.
5. Match right sides of the pattern pieces together and sew around the edge, leaving a small opening at the bottom centre of the bib. The pattern has a 1cm (0.39”) seam allowance.
6. Clip the inner curved neckline of the bib, carefully so not to cut the stitching.
7. Turn the bib inside-out to the right side.
8. Fold the opening seam to the inside of the bib and pin.
9. Stitch around the outside of the bib, close to the edge.
10. Hurrah! The bib is now complete.
