Sew Baby Bibs with this collection of over seventy great baby bib patterns and tutorials (most with templates) gathered from all over the web.
A set of colorful, handmade baby bibs can make a great (and inexpensive) baby shower gift. Try getting creative by embellishing the edges of your baby bib with ric-rac, bias tape, or fringe. Or you can make your bib water-resistant and wipeable by adding a layer of vinyl to the outside of your bib (or you can simply make your bib from a waterproof material).
And because of its simple shape, a baby bib can be a great, easy first project for a beginner who's just learning how to sew (if you don’t have a baby or toddler yourself, you can pass the bib on to someone who does). And because of what a baby bib is designed for (catching baby drool & dribble), it will be okay if the bib doesn't turn out perfectly.
And sewing a baby bib can be a great way use up those smaller scraps of fabric leftover from other projects, or a great way to "repurpose" old clothing such as t-shirts and jeans. And if you're making your bibs from brand new cotton fabric, just remember to preshrink your fabric first (and any trims too). You may even want to wash your fabric more than once because cotton fabric doesn't always shrink its maximum amount the first washing.
