Pocket Bib Pattern . . .

Our newest grandson, who was born Friday night, was four days overdue which put a little time on my hands the beginning of last week. In April when I announced the impending arrival of this little guy and his two cousins, I introduced a bib pattern that I thought you might like. Go here for that post. At that time some asked if I was going to make the bib pattern available to all, so that's what this post is all about.

In the earlier post I made a Scrappy Bib with this pattern. This time I made a Pocket Bib using the same basic pattern with a pocket added. Here are the two examples of Pocket Bibs I made last week. These are for the grandbaby due in August -- a little girl...


These bibs are so quick and easy to make -- just follow the simple instructions below. At the end of the post you will discover how you can receive this pattern...

Materials...

  • Cut 2 of bib front and back from cotton or flannel fabric (can be the same fabric or contrasting)
  • Cut 2 pockets from contrasting fabric
  • Cut one piece of fusible fleece to be attached to the front of the bib
  • 1 Snap
  • 11" piece of Jumbo Ric-Rac (optional)
  • Seam Allowance: 1/4 inch unless otherwise noted

Before You Begin Sewing...

1.) Iron on fusible fleece to wrong side of front bib.

Assembling the Pocket...

2.) Begin by placing a piece of Ric-Rac on the right side of the front pocket along the straight edge. Place the bottom of the Ric-Rac flush with the edge of the fabric and sew 1/4" from the edge.
3.) Put front and back pockets right side together and sew a 1/2" seam along the top straight edge, catching half of the Ric-Rac in the seam. (This will be the only 1/2" seam on the bib -- all others are 1/4".)
4.) Turn pocket right side out and press. (Optional: Top-stitch 1/8" across the top of the pocket.)


5.) Place the pocket on top of the front bib, aligning unfinished bottom edges of the bib front and pocket. Baste.

Assembling the Bib...

6.) Place bib front and back right sides together and sew a 1/4 inch seam around the bib, leaving a 2-3 inch opening on the side of the bib above the pocket.


7.) Trim seams to 1/8" around entire bib -- except at the 2-3 inch opening.
8.) Pull right side of bib through the opening and press seams flat
9.) Slip stitch the opening shut.
10.) Optional: Top-stitch the bib 1/8 inch from seams all the way around the bib.


11.) Attach the snap according to directions on package about 1/2" from the tab ends of the bib.


All done!
