Handmade bandana baby bib INSTRUCTIONS:
cut the fabrics according to the pattern
place the fabrics right sides together and pin, leaving a 2″ (5cm) gap for turning
serge or sew using a zig zag stitch
turn the bandana baby bib right side out
tuck in the raw edges of the gap, pin the gap and press with an iron
sew all around using a 1/8″(3mm seam allowance)
here’s how it look like so far
mark the position of the snaps
STEP 8: Install the KAM snaps (or the velcro)
In this step you need to install either kam snaps or a hook and loop fastening. I highly reccomend you to go with the first as babies tend to pull on their bibs and the velcro won’t hold well.
Pierce through the marks with the sewing awl and install the 3 kam snaps as follows:
- cap+stud on the right side
- cap+socket for the 2 snaps on the left side
Press them with the pliers
DONE! The DIY bandana baby bib is ready
