Prepster Baby Bibs

I'm all about unique and individual, but sometimes that comes at a high price, but not if you're a DIY girl like us TT123 gals!  Finding gifts for those baby showers or dear little ones close to your heart is fun, but when you give it that extra special touch that's all your own -- it suddenly becomes a very special gift.  So, I saw this cute idea on a few of the blogs and thought I'd give it a try.

First, purchase some plain bibs from the department store.  And, gather any fabric scraps you might have around the house. 

Now begin to put a little preppy touch on that bland, little bib by first cutting out the pattern for your tie. 

Then, use that pattern to trace the pattern onto your fabric scrap, and cut out the fabric.

Pin that fabric onto your bib.  Using a sewing machine, stitch very close to the edge of the fabric and sew around the entire edge of the fabric.

Can you tell I had a lot of fun with this project?  I couldn't stop making them!  Well, my little nephew will hopefully be enjoying these, and looking like such the little preppy one-year-old!!

Just an update -- here's Mr. One-Year-Old wearing his tie -- what a dapper little guy!!


  1. Great job! I love the simplicity yet preppy feel of this bib! :)
