Custom Bibs For Baby

I’ve been sewing for years and I love making things for my family, especially when it comes to baby stuff. When you’re a parent, there’s nothing more satisfying than knowing that you made something for your child. It’s also great when the item is something practical like a bib and it turns out exactly as planned. The best part about making your own bibs is that they can be anything your imagination allows!

Soft cotton fabric

While bibs made of other fabrics may be cheaper and more durable, cotton is the best material for baby bibs. Cotton fabric is soft, absorbent and breathable—and it’s gentle on your little one’s skin. When compared to other fabrics like polyester or acrylic (which can be harsh), cotton also has a better ability to wick away moisture from your baby’s body. How does this help? Your child won’t have to worry about chapped lips or dry skin after eating messy meals while wearing their custom bibs!

Interfacing to help it hold up to baby’s spit-up and drool

Interfacing is a type of fabric that helps stiffen up the bib. It’s usually made of cotton or other natural fibers and can help to create a more durable, functional piece.

Interfacing can be used in any project that needs extra stiffness, but it’s particularly useful for bibs made from lightweight fabrics like voile and lawn because they tend to be less sturdy than heavier ones like denim or canvas. The interfacing makes the finished product much more hard-wearing and will help hold up through baby’s spit-up and drool!

Velcro closure, no snaps or zippers

Velcro is a great way to keep baby bibs secure. It’s easy to fasten and unfasten, so you can put on or take off the bib with one hand (and you’ll need both hands if your baby is trying to grab some food). Velcro also cleans up easily, so it’s no big deal if your little one spills or drools on their bib during meal times. And unlike snaps or zippers, velcro won’t break after repeated use. If it does get a bit worn out over time and isn’t holding quite as securely as it did when it was new then simply replace the fuzzy side of the velcro with a replacement strip from

Machine washable

Machine washable bibs are handy, but you must follow the manufacturer’s instructions for washing and drying them.

  • Use cold water
  • Use a gentle cycle
  • Don’t use bleach
  • Don’t dry in the dryer (even if they say they’re dry-clean only)

You can make a bib that is comfortable for the baby and is easy to clean.

You can make a bib that is comfortable for the baby and is easy to clean.

First, use 100% cotton fabric. This type of fabric will not irritate the skin of your baby. It’s also easy to wash and comes in many colors and prints.

Second, use interfacing on the inside of your bibs for strength and durability. The interfacing helps it hold up to baby’s spit-up and drool better than plain cotton would alone.

Third, fasten your bib using velcro instead of buttons or zippers because these can be hard for small children to work with (and they might get caught in their hair). Velcro closures are also much easier to put on than snaps or other types of fasteners too!

Fourth, machine washable if possible so as not only be able to keep it clean but also save time when washing them after every meal (or feeding) since there’ll always be some sort of spillage at some point during mealtime!!
