Materials List

  • The Pattern
  • 3 pieces of fabric
  • Matching Thread
  • Bias Tape
  • Scissors
  • Iron
  • Pins
  • Sewing Machine


  1. There are three pages in total, but you only need to print the second and third page. Print at 100%. Do not “scale to fit. Check if the square test measures 4 cm x 4 cm.

  2. Cut out a front, a back and the batting fabric. I used some fleece insead of it

  3. Pin together the batting and the back layer. Topstitch horizontally and vertically as desired in order to keep both these layers in place as one.

  4. Design the front of the bib with stars or your chosen figures.

  5. With your choice of fabric make the ties. Cut four rectangles 3 cm wide and 20 cm long. Fold each piece in half lengthwise, and press. Fold again so that the raw edges are enclosed and the folded edges meet, iron and stitch along in one or both long sides close to the edges.

  6. On your work desk put the front bib panel and position the straps 0.8 cm off the neckline edge on both sides. Sew in Place using 0.3 cm seam allowance. Repeat for the bottomed ties.

  7. With the right sides of the fabrics together, pin the two panels together • Stitch around the bib with a 0.6 inch seam allowance, leaving a 3 inch opening at the bottom to turn the bib right side out. • Trim some of the bulk from your seam. • Turn the apron bib right-side out through the opening and press the seams. • Sew the opening at the bottom and continue topstitching around the entire bib.

  8. Pin the two panels of fabric with the wrong sides facing each other. Edge stitch all around the bib, so you can remove the pins and add the bias tape without worrying that the panels will shift. Add the bias tape around the sides, first. Next, pin the bias tape to the neck of the bib and leave out 15- 20 cm of tape for the ties on both sides. Pin the bias tape around the bottomed curved edge of the bib, also leaving enough for the ties. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial as I plan to share more baby patterns in the future.
