Bandana bibs

Postby keljbj » Fri Aug 19, 2011 12:22 pm

A friend asked me to make some bandana style bibs for her little girl. I'd only made bandanas for dogs before :giggle: but i said i'd have a go.

These are what i came up with.

The bottom right one is to go with her christening outfit, as she is being christened on sunday :D I just hope she likes them now!!!

They look lovely! Did you use a pattern or just do it? I've made a couple in a similar style, that have not turned out like that.

No pattern as such, just a 12"x12" square of paper cut in half diagonally, but with one side curved slightly outwards in the middle/the other curved inwards. The outward curved one is for the back. This gives the little lip of fleece, which sits under the chin (as its more absorbant). I found the ones that i used which did that worked much better, so based it on that :giggle: These are to fit a 3 month old probably until 6 months, to make bigger ones you would just start with a bigger square :wink:
