How to create your dribble bib

What you'll need:

  • 0.6 metre cotton or light weight material
  • 0.6 metre Waffle Weave
  • Snaps or Velcro
  • Download the pattern

Step one

Embroider your design onto the fabric first.

Note:If you cut the material from the pattern before embroidering you will not have enough fabric in the hoop for stability.


Cut the pattern out and place it over the fabric so that the design is in the centre.


Cut out the Waffle Weave fabric from the pattern.


Place the fabric so that the right sides are facing together and then pin in place.


Leave a small gap free so you can turn it inside out once you have finished sewing around the edge. You can mark this with your pins.


Sew 1/4 inch around the edge of the fabric making sure to leave a small gap as outlined by your pins.


Cut around the sharp edge and around the corners making sure not to cut your stitch line.


Turn it inside out through the small gap and iron flat.


Hand sew the small opening closed.


It is probably best to wrap the dribble bib around your child and mark with an erasable pen where you need to place the velcro or snaps.


We have used a machine snap in the picture above but you can also use sewn on snaps or velcro. Do not use buttons or anything that can be eaten or accidentally swallowed by your child.
