How to Sew a Baby Bib: a beginner friendly tutorial, with FREE pattern!

Baby bibs make the best little quick-to-sew projects! Whether you’re making some for your own babies or grandbabies, or need a fun project for a baby shower, I promise you, these bibs will fit the bill. I like to make them in sets of three by choosing three coordinating fabrics and switching up the fronts and backs!

This tutorial is totally beginner friendly. Even kids can sew these up. Scroll down for the video, then scroll some more for the links to the tools I recommended in the tutorial. Then scroll down a bit more for the free downloadable baby bib pattern.

I've been making these for many years, I'm pretty sure I traced a baby bib I had at the time for this pattern (my youngest is 11!) They make great little gifts and they're so easy! A few links to supplies I refer to in the video (these are affiliate links and while I wasn't paid to recommend them, I truly love and use these items and do earn a small percentage should you purchase them through these links). 

Wonder Clips! These are awesome, I use them all the time, wish I'd had them sooner. 

The Babyville snap plyers

And the snaps. These come in all kinds of great colors, but also in white. 

You’ll also need fabrics, of course! You can use fat quarters for bibs, but if you’re buying yardage, go with half yard cuts. You’ll also need some plain flannel, or something absorbent to go inside.

So, without further ado, here's the video tutorial! Enjoy :)
