DIY Baby Shower Gift – How to Sew Baby Bibs in 4 sizes

Sewing for Baby: Templates & Tutorial for 4 sizes of Baby Bibs

Whether you’re an experienced seamstress or a beginner, this tutorial will guide you through the process of creating adorable and functional bibs for the little ones in your life.

I love to make bibs with terry towel backs so they are extra absorbent. If you prefer fabric on both sides you can use the same method or cut both sides from the pattern and sew them together.

The free baby bib pattern includes 4 bib sizes and a printable of the “Something Fore Baby” gift tag shown in the photos and video. The art is from my Golf Days fabric line for Riley Blake Designs if you decide to go with a golf theme gift as well!

If you want to save time and cut your fabrics with a cutting machine you can find this pattern with SVG files in my Sew with Tara Reed Etsy Shop.

I use the term “Terry Towel” to mean any absorbent fabric used for the back of the bib.

This will help to remove any sizing or residue that could affect absorbency or cause shrinkage later on.

    Tara. Love your video on baby bibs. I’m new it’s sewing so this was extremely easy to comprehend. Now I would love the patterns so I could attempt to make some of these. Thank you so much for making it easy.
