Reversible Bandana Bib | EASY How to | Whitney Sews


Hi everyone! I’m Whitney and I post sewing
and crafting tutorials here on my youTube channel Whitney Sews! My younger daughter
Skyler is teething right now and she is drooling all over the place, so in order to keep her
clothes dry she wears bandanna style bibs a lot. So today I’m going to show you how
to make them. They are very quick and easy and are great gifts for new moms. Before we
get into the tutorial, if you haven’t subscribed already you can do so by clicking the red
subscription button down below. Now onto the tutorial. You will first need a bandanna bib pattern.
I traced a bib we already had and added a ¼ inch seam allowance. If you don’t have
a bib to start with you can make your own pattern or try to find one online. I will
have a pic of this one on a grided ruler on my website if you want to use it as a guide. Then you will need to select your materials.
Fabrics that are soft and absorb well are best. I selected a soft minky type of fabric
for use side and used flannel for the other because it’s all I had that matched. And since
I’m doing my sew your stash challenge I wasn’t going to run out and buy anything new. Cut one bib piece out of each material. My
pattern is designed to be cut on the fold. Place the two pieces right sides together
and sew around the outer side with a ¼ inch seam allowance. Leave a 3 to 4 inch gap in
one straight side for turning. Trim down the seam allowance at the tip and small curves
and cut little snips in the longer curve. Then turn the entire bib right sides out through
the opening. Smooth out the seams so they lay flat and top stitch all the way around
to close up the hole. All that’s left is to add the closure. I love adding snaps to projects
like this, but you can use velcro or a button if that’s all you have. There will be a link
below if you want to check out the snap setter I’m using. This is a super quick project and you can
whip up several of them in one afternoon. If you liked this project make sure to hit
