adorable, Juliette! perfect choice of fabric! The photos look great - I love that you used the abacus as a prop!


thanks so much for posting this.

I had been wanting to make bibs from bend the rules sewing but was too lazy to copy and enlarge the pattern. This came at the perfect time!


Thanks for you comment, note that this bib is a bit smaller than the bend the rules sewing bib. The neck hole is about the same size however.
I know what you mean about sizing up a book pattern... I hate it too. that's why the bib is in two pieces, so that it's ready to use hot of the printer!


Thanks for the pattern! I have just recently found your blog and have been enjoying it!


Perfect timing - thank you! I'm 36 weeks pregnant with Baby #2 and just discovered that the bibs are among the items that didn't last well through Baby #1. I know what I'll be working on this week...

I have also just recently discovered your blog and enjoy it very much. I hope you're able to continue with the patterns - I know I'll put them to good use!


I love this bib pattern, and appreciate you sharing it! As a matter of fact, I know several babies who are on the way, this is perfect! Thank you!
I also love your blog and wish you much happiness and joy with your little fellow. It shouldn't be too much longer? Best wishes!


i liked your flannel blanket/changing pad/burpcloth blog from january 1st, but we don't have a joann's anymore and i couldn't find any ultra cute flannel at hobby lobby, so when i saw the bib pattern i ran out and bought some fabric and made one. i have a few baby gifts that need to get out soon, and this was quick and easy. also, i have never tried any kind of "decorative" stitching, but i was inspired from your jan 1st blog and gave it a shot. i've posted pictures on my blog :) thanks for all the great ideas!!!


This is great! Thanks for sharing the pattern.


So sweet! Thank you for sharing. I have a shower for a friend coming up in two weeks and these are perfect. Best wishes to you as you await your babe!


Beautiful bib - thank you!


I love the smile for sardines slogan. So cute.


I've just made some of these bib's and they turned out awesomely!!

Thanks for posting such a helpful tutorial/pattern.


Thanks for such a cute pattern. My sister had a baby yesterday and I have all this old retro fabric I want to make her bibs with. I need to get going! I also have a friend who has created really cute iron on applique's from her original water colors that I want to put on the bibs as well. I will send a pic when I get them done. Check out the appliques at www.monkeyroos.com.


i found some of the cutest appliques on monkeyroos.com too......they're awesome.


Wonderful! My wee one is just about to start solids so I will whip some of these up. Thanks so much for the pattern!


thanks for share!

I just made some of these for our friends that are expecting twins! You can see them on my blog: hollyanderic.blogspot.com

Thanks so much for the pattern!


Love the little bib. I like the wider part that goes around the neck. Thanks.


I made four of your bibs for my great-nephew and posted them today. Thanks for the pattern. Congrats on your baby boy too!


Thank you so very much for the bib pattern. I've turned out a dozen in the last week for the gozillion babies that my friends have just brought, or are about to bring, into the world. I'm putting some pics up on my blog.

Great blog!


Hey there! I loved your pattern. My two came out great. Thanks for sharing.

Nathalie Brault

I just found your blog and I think it looks great. I don't have a baby but I do enjoy any type of pattern, you never know as my grown ups are from 16 to 25 Who knows? Maybe I'll be sewing some soon. I've been coming back often . Just love it. Good luck..

Sam Qureshi

This pattern is so great. I have made four of them and everyone who has seen them loves them too. Thank you so much for the pattern. It is easy, quick, uses little fabric, and is adorable! Thanks again.


Love the pattern. I just reduced the size to make bibs for our new foster baby. He's a preemie & bibs are impossible to find to fit him. He's got some issues with the milk oozing out & I need a bib that fits. Thank you again!!


Thank you so much for the pattern for the bib I will send pictures when I finish them. thank you once again


Love it! I am going to make some right now!

I have made many bibs for my self and family and friends. One of my friends sugested I sell the bibs and a Christmas craft show. I was wondering if I would be able to do this if I don't sell the pattern? I didn't see on the post anything about not selling them so I thought I would ask. Please email me as soon as possible. Thanks

Thanks for sharing this pattern. Much appreciated.


Thanks for this pattern - it was nice and simple to follow, and I quickly sewed a bib for a friend's baby after work one evening. I'm attaching a link to the picture of it. http://knittingfairy.wordpress.com/

I'm attending a baby shower in three weeks. I'll use the pattern that you shared to make a gift. My best friend will definitely like it. Thanks much!

thanks again!


Juju, not at all, you are welcome to use the pictures and thanks!


My d-i-l is expecting her second baby in 12 months so this is a must have, good bib pattern. I made heaps of baby things last year for our 1st granddaughter born in Sept 2008. She is now expecting another bub in October 2009. THANKS FOR THE PATTERN

I know I'm over a year late on the bus but I just made this bib last night. TOO cute and easy peasy! Thanks so much!!



What a fun little pattern. I added interfacing to mind since I used different fabrics for the front and back.



Thanks for the great pattern! I needed a last minute shower gift, and found this post via google. Quick and easy...perfect!


Thanks for sharing! Lovely!

Agree. It's a good article that I can apply this for my routine. I loved it, so usefully. Thanks :)


Thanks so much, I did three of these (slightly modified) today. Here's my link:

love to have new bib ideas. lots of babies on the way all over town. thank you.


Hi! I love your blog! I found your pattern for infant bibs and made some for a shower I went to yesterday. I thought you might like to see how they turned out. Thanks for all of the great tutorials!



Thanks for sharing! I love that you can make it from a fat quarter since the nearest fabric store is an hour away but I can pick up cute fat quarters at the local wally for a short notice shower gift.


Thanks for the pattern! It's lovely! I made two of them and have some pictures in my blog :)

Nicely presented information in this post, I prefer to read this kind of stuff. The quality of content is fine and the conclusion is good. Thanks for the post.

Sarah Scott

I am using your pattern to make bibs for charity. I lengthened the pattern by a couple of inches for more coverage. I love this pattern so much, and it's such a breeze to whip up, I want to make a ton for my own baby now! Thanks for sharing it!

Here are pix of my work:

Jennifer Kensinger

You must have discontinued the basic bib pattern. Embroidery Garden recommended this basic bib pattern. If you still have it, could you e-mail it to me?

Many thanks,


Just wondering?? Is there anyway that I could get a copy of your pixie elf pattern posted some time ago, but later, not available.
If your pattern is not available, would you have a suggestion of where to find a similar pattern?




I think the bib's size is perfect, it is so lovely.

Add charm to any nursery with this lovely Baby gift set. The set features a plush giraffe holding a beautiful gift box with a warm yellow blanket inside. JoJo the giraffe will make a great friend for the new baby and mommy will find the snuggly-soft blanket a practical gift for her newborn.

He's a preemie & bibs are impossible to find to fit him. He's got some issues with the milk oozing out & I need a bib that fits. Thank you again!!


Thank you very much for sharing your pattern! I had fun sewing the bibs up for an upcoming baby shower.

You can see the bib photos here:


I am new here, new to sewing and going to be a new grandma in August...

How do I download this pattern?

Thank you!


Am going to give this a try. Have been searching for the right pattern all weekend.


I'm still learning to sew but would love to make this bib. It is the best looking bib pattern I've seen yet and it looks so simple. I do have one question though, does it include the 1/4" seem allowance on the pattern or do I have to add 1/4" to it? Thanks :D

Nancy Woods

Thanks so much for really cute bib pattern! I plan to make quite a few for my new grand-son who goes through them faster than you can blink an eye.

cross stitch kits

beautiful! thank you for the pattern ;-)


Just wanted to say thank you for the pattern!


Thank you for the super simple pattern! I really enjoyed making these for my new baby niece, alongside making a Keyka Lou ditty bag for her 4 year old sister.

Here's how the bibs turned out:

They're all conveniently backed with some thick burgundy fabric from a scraps box someone gave me through Freecycle.

What a wonderful idea to make for a gift.


I love this pattern!!! Also, I adore the applique...did you make that or order it?? I'd like to add fun text appliques to one of mine. Any ideas/suggestions are much appreciated:) Keep Calm and Craft on

Becky M

awesome! Thanks for sharing this!

Connie Melton

Thanks for the pattern it seems baby making is in the water where I live. Thank God I am so past all that. An occasional McDonald's Happy Meal won't hurt plus your doing research for when your baby grows into a toddler.

Florence Bastidas

Just found your web site and would like to use your pattern for making bibs for infants in foster care. Is this ok with you. Thanks

Trisha Freitag

This pattern is great! I have a new grandson who can use these. I also sew for mamas in need and bibs are always in high demand. Thanks for sharing with us. It's much appreciated.


Thanks so much for the pattern! Exactely what I was looking for!
I'm pregnant as well and would kill to have a MacDonalds anywhere near... for those moments of weakness!
Have a wonderful day! ♥
