Button Up Bib



All right, i told you i was bib crazy. They're just too easy and quick to make and there is so much variety. Plus what parent doesnt use bibs for their babies and toddlers? Its a must-have.

This particular bib idea i found on Pinterest, but it's from an over sea's blogger (French i believe?). I had to translate the blog post then convert measurements over to inches. But because my translator didn't do that great of a job not much of the post made sense at all :(

So what i did was make my own rough measurements and basically do a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants type project.

This bib is multi-functional. Button it up to create a food catching pocket, or leave unbuttoned for an extended bib that protects more of your child's clothing.


I started out by piecing my bib front together so the bib itself and the pocket were two different prints (both from the Riley Blake Flutterberry collection) then i use a single cut of white terry cloth in the same size, grabbed 2 buttons and some white bias tape and went to town!

I really love this bib style. The ribbon tie neckline allows it to be used on all shapes, sizes, and ages of babies and toddlers and the fact that its so versatile is great too. Leave this bib buttoned up to create a food-catching pocket then unbutton it to wipe clean (this would be especially great if oil cloth was used) or simply leave it unbuttoned when worn to use as an extended bib to protect more of your child's clothing.
