Get Messy Plaid Baby Bib

Sue Eldred

January 6, 2018

It never hurts to have an extra bib or two for those times when life is about to get messy.

This is a great project for any leftover plaid flannel you have on hand.  Perfect for making a cute, washable baby bib.

You will need:

Joy® iron-on embroidered letter sheet 1/2 yd Flannel Coordinating thread Pattern (or make your own) Pins Hook and loop circle fasteners Instructions: 

  1. Make a pattern by tracing around a bib you may have on hand onto card stock. To make a larger size, fold the card stock and the bib in half then place the folded edge of the bib about 1/2" away from the folded edge of the card stock. This will make your finished pattern 1" wider. Trace around the bib adding an additional 1/2" to allow for seams. Add additional length to the bottom if needed. Cut the pattern.
  2. Pin the pattern onto 2 layers of flannel then cut, to create two pieces.
  3. Sew the two pieces together either by hand or sewing machine,  leaving a space at the bottom, then turn inside out.
  4. Iron the bib to flatten then top stitch the seams around the bib, about 1/4" from the edge.
  5. Position the letters you chose to personalize on front of the bib then iron in place with a pressing cloth, following directions on the packaging.
  6. Attach hook and loop fasteners to each end of the bib to fasten. 

Joy® Iron-on, embroidered letters are available in a variety of sizes, colors and fonts 

at your local craft stores.
