In this step-by-step sewing tutorial, we’ll guide you through the process of making this charming Halloween-themed baby bib. With just a few materials, including white fabric strips, black buttons for eyes, and a kitchen towel for the back, you can create a bib that’s not only festive but also soft and absorbent.

In this video tutorial I’ll walk you through ALL the steps to make this from start to finish Mummy Baby Bib. I love using kitchen towels for the back of bibs so they are nice and absorbent.

Be sure to prewash your white fabric and a kitchen towel. You’ll cut strips of fabric, sew them on the bib and wash the whole thing after it’s sewn and you’ll get a great tattered mummy look.
