DIY Bandana Drool Bib

Once the drool starts it doesn’t stop!  I saw an adorable bandana drool bib in a store and thought, I could easily make that!  And you can too!  It is a simple 5 to 10 minute project that makes a great gift and a fantastic accent and cute and functional accessory for your little one.

 

As always, there is a youtube tutorial and the written steps on here!  Hope you enjoy!

 

This is for size 6months to 12months.

What you will need:
1) Two Fabrics (one side needs to be absorbent). I used a cute flannel fabric and then a yellow fleece material for the back.
2) Velcro or snaps to hold it shut

  1.  Fold your fabric in half. Cut out two triangles, one with each fabric (you can use my measurements or compare to your bib size for your little one) .  I used the measurements of  9in long and 7 1/2in on the fold.
  2. Next, you are going to make a cut for the neckline about 3 inches in from the side
    and 2 inches down the fold.
  3. Cut the little triangle off the very end, abut half an inch, this is where the velcro will connect.
  4. Take pattern side facing pattern side and sew all the way around leaving a small
    opening around 2 inches (this is where you will pull it right side out)
  5. Now pull it right side out and hand sew the hole shut and VOILA! drool bib
    complete!
  6. Iron press it!  You can also go around the whole outside and sew it if you like for the design look!
  7. Next you want to attach either your velcro or snaps.  I have iron on velcro I used.

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial, if you have questions just post! Thanks

Crib Rail Protector! GRR

One day I put my little munchkin down to nap and a couple minutes later I go to check on her and she is gnawing the crib side rail!  And you know how expensive cribs are, so I was not a happy camper.  I was also concerned about the stain getting in her mouth.  So, I got right to work making a crib rail cover and protector!  So far, she has only gnawed on the one rail, and that is because this rail faces the hallway that she enjoys looking out and crying to see if anyone will come to her rescue!

8867faf8-b143-4eca-b6be-d3c9f7f728b5          This is a simple project that should take no more than 15 to 20 minutes.  As always, I have a Youtube video and a written and picture explanation.

 

  • What you need:
  • Fabric with your chosen pattern
  • Batting (fleece or any type of padding)
  • Ribbon
  • Measuring tape
  1. First you want to measure your crib rail that you will be making this for.  Measure the inside from side to side for the length and then the width and add 2 inches (or measure downwards for how long you want it to go down).
  2. Snapshot 2 (10-29-2015 7-41 PM)
  3. Also measure where your ties will tie onto your railing.  Mark this all down so you remember.
  4. Then cut the length and width of the fabrics and also cut your ribbon.  Now you may want to make your ribbon longer for bigger bows but keep in mind your little one may pull at them if they are too long.  I recommend about 6-8 inches long. I used 6 pieces of ribbon (so 3 ties) total for the side rail.
  5. Pin your ribbon onto your batting facing inwards.  Have the two ribbons across from each other and make sure to measure out the spots. Pin them down with the shiny side or pattern side up.
  6. Snapshot 3 (10-29-2015 7-41 PM)
  7. Line up your other fabric piece with right side down (right sides facing eachother).
  8. Now you want to sew all the way around the edges leaving a 2 to 3 inch opening.  Make sure you backstitch!
  9. Snapshot 4 (10-29-2015 6-55 PM)
  10. Pull the inside out and make sure the corners are popped out.  Then sew this area shut.
  11. You are done congrats! Go put it on and save your crib!
