Hello DIYers! I spied these bibs on Pinterest (again yes), and couldn’t resist myself, I had to make some! They are almost too pretty to actually use! Yet I have a very drooly baby so I’ll probably get way over my money’s worth for them! Check out my easy DIY Fringe Bibs!
Here’s What You’ll Need:
This is the material I used to make 3 of these bibs.
- My Free Angled Fringe Bib Pattern
- 1/2 yard fabric for the front (I used a patterned cotton)
- 1/2 yard for back (you can use the same fabric, or I used a softer flannel)
- 1 1/2 yards of your desired fringe
- 4 ft of desired ribbon (mine matched my fringe)
- Sewing Machine
Start by washing and drying your fabric to prevent any awkward shrinkage in later washing. While that is washing, go ahead a print my angled fringe bib pattern (link above), cut it out and tape it together.
After your fabric is done, fold it over, pin on your pattern and cut out a front and a back for your bib. I used a softer flannel fabric for my back and a cute cotton for the fronts. Make sure the edge that says “Place on fold” is on the fold of the fabric, don’t cut the fold!
Next you will want cut your ribbon to strips of 8″, two for each bib, and burn the edges to prevent fraying. Don’t singe them!
Next place the edge of your ribbon on either top ends of your front piece, right side up.
Then place your front and back pieces on top of each other, right sides together and pin together. Make sure to fold up your ribbon on the inside so you don’t sew it down while sewing your sides.
Sew around the edges using 1/4″ seam allowances leaving a hole at the bottom by not sewing one edge of the bottom. Flip your bib right side out then fold the edges or the hole in and top stitch to sew that hole shut and give your bibs a clean look.
Next we take our fringe and measure and cut a piece for each side of our obtuse angle bottom. Leave about a 1/2″ over hang on either side. Fold the over hang in to prevent fraying, pin and sew. Do this for the other side as well over lapping in the middle.
Finally we will remove the bottom stitching on our fringe, ruffle it up to cover that middle gap and wa-la! A beautiful bohemian fringe bib!
These bibs are adorable, maybe a tad girlie for Jamie so I’ll have to save them for a sister maybe. Don’t forget to pin it!Cassie Jean
