Last week I released my latest sewing pattern, the Super Bib Pack, which has all sorts of styles, sizes, variations and sewing options, meaning that there are dozens of ways to personalize your bibs and burp cloths! Just to give you an idea of some possibilities, let me show you some examples of what my pattern testers came up with! They are all very different and reflect the personalities and needs of each family!
Check out this absolutely adorable hedgehog bib Rachel from Golden Rippy made for her boy!
Sara is a gal after my own heart because she loves repurposing materials! She used an old umbrella for a waterproof layer! Fantastic!
She also repurposed part of an old poncho for a wipeable bib and a soft old bedsheet for a regular one. I love it when my testers and readers embrace my upcycling mentality!
Tina from Creations from Mormor also repurposed bed linens, in this case a printed pillow case. I love how she positioned the fabric so that the print is perfectly displayed!
Sara from Made by Sara used laminated cotton for a wipeable bib and waterproof terry cloth for a waterproof version! It’s always great when you can protect your child from getting soaked during a meal!
Marisa made a bunch of bibs and burp cloths! The first set is super snuggly with soft flannel and terry cloth.
The wipeable bib to the right was Marisa’s first experience sewing laminated PUL fabric, and she had no problems at all!
Not everyone had a child to test the fit on. Ilaria from Handmade for Love tried hers on her cat instead! Hilarious!
Ilaria made her bibs from old towels. She put an elastic strap on one of them instead of the ties for easier use.
Jenny from Embrace Everyday used knit and corduroy for her fun jungle-themed bibs:
Barbara from Il Baule di Nonna Ida made a TON of bibs (not all of which I’m showing because I’d need a whole post dedicated to them!) with squishy terry cloth on the front and colorful quilting cotton on the back. But what makes them super special are the fantastic embroidered animals on the front!
Seeing these makes me want to invest in an emboidery machine, too! I mean… look at that! This giraffe was my favorite:
Anna from Messy Rooms made great boy versions of the bibs. I really love the superhero set!
Joanne from Quilts by Joanne made a couple of bibs with supplies she already had around the house.
I love seeing how my testers personalize the patterns! For example, Sheila lives on a farm and so she used cuddly sheep fabric for her upcoming baby!
And once again, cotton laminate makes for perfect wipeable bibs!
Sara from Shumadeit made four styles of bibs. How perfect is the hamburger fabric on a bib for a hungry boy?!
These small bibs with and without bias binding around the body really show the difference this technique makes! I really love the extra color around the edges!
Vania used an old towel to makes her bibs. This was her first time making her own bias tape, and I’d say it went great!
These patterns are so easy to sew, they’re perfect even for total beginners! For example, Angie is a very early beginner sewist and was concerned that she wouldn’t be able to sew these. And as you can see, she had no problems at all, even with the bias tape!
So, as you can see, there are LOADS of ways to personalize your bibs and make them perfect for you and your child!
