Baby doll bibs tutorial

Of course my daughter's dolly needs a couple of bibs to keep her from getting messy. Bibs are easy to make - just make a paper template by putting a piece of paper on the doll and estimating the size. In this case one bib measured 5,5" (14 cm) x 8" (20 cm).

Like the diapers, the backing was an unused floor rag, though fleece would also be good. Velcro was sewn onto the ends for fastening. The decorative add-ons were cut from remaining fabric, glued on with a normal glue stick and then zig-zagged around.

In retrospect, the opening could have been a bit smaller, but I am sure this is not the last time I will be making this particular item, so I will get that right the next time around. Also, this baby is not going to eat real food, so not real worries there if it is not perfect.

If you like, you can view an older post of mine where I made bibs for my kids.

My next entry in this project will be the diaper bag.

Have a delightful day!
