Pocket Bibs...


I've mentioned before that my sewing machine has been humming non-stop lately. I'm in "baby mode" -- getting ready for #13 grandbaby due next month. Receiving blankets were first off the line, then burp cloths. The next thing I made were some soft flannel bibs for the little guy... 


I posted a tutorial on how to make these cute bibs a couple of years ago. Go here for the tutorial and to find out how to get the pattern.


I revealed in my "Burp Cloths for Baby" post on Monday a tip on how to use lightweight receiving blankets from Target as fabric for baby items such as bibs, burp cloths and taggie blankets. These bibs were all made from those coordinating fabrics...



When I originally made this pattern I had intended it to be used for babies 1-6 months of age, so I was surprised when I went to see our granddaughter around her 1st birthday and she was still using it. I'm glad that they can be used throughout the baby's first year...



A bib is one of the quickest things you can make, and this pattern is simple enough for the novice sewer.


If you'd like to see the instructions and request the pattern for this bib, go to this Pocket Bib tutorial.

Love the pocket on the bib! I have seen purchased bibs with this pocket feature, what a great idea. I tried to go to the link at the end of the post but it didn't work. I think I will make a few of these for our little one arriving in August. LOVE all your ideas Suzanne!! Thanks again for sharing!!!

Those pockets catch all sorts of things, which is both good and bad, I suppose! Nice BibS!
