Picture of Bibs from Towels

Use towels and some scrap fabric to make cute bibs. It first took me about an hour to make one, as I was figuring out the best way to make them. The time shortened as I found little cheats and tricks. This can be done by people just starting out, or by those who have years of experience.

There are loads of videos on how to sew corners, binding, etc. online, so be sure to check them out if you get stuck.

If you use iron ons or anything like that, please secure it with a zig zag stitch so it won't come off.

Sorry some of the pictures are blurry, I was using my phone.

I would also like to add that though my board and ironing pad are old and stained, I love it to death.

Step 1: Materials Needed

Picture of Materials Needed

A towel, either a hand towel or bigger. The towel can be worn, but do not use thread bare or holey ones

A bib (optional)

Paper for tracing. (I use newspaper)

Sharp scissors

Rotary Cutter (optional, but is a great thing to have!)

Ruler, or a square grid ruler... thingy

Sewing machine


Ironing board

Thread, matching to your scrap fabric, or contrasting- your choice. I used what I had

Scrap fabric. You need enough to make a 4 foot by 2 inch strip. If you choose, you can add a top layer using fabric, as I did. I used a block that was bigger than my bib. (see the image)

These are very cute! Great job!
