Spit Bib Tutorial and Free Pattern

Got drool?

Lola does! Today I’m sharing a free bib pattern that has been a lifesaver for us!

I’ve had a love/hate relationship with bibs since my first baby was born – store-bought ones are often ugly or busy, and hand-made bibs are often made out of cute co-ordinating fabrics, but rarely match any of Lola’s clothes or outfits. So it’s either put her in a plain white onesie so that the bib doesn’t clash with her clothes, or ditch the bib and have to change her drooly clothes 5 times a day. With both of my boys it was frustrating, because the “cutest” bibs that I made for them rarely got used, especially not on a day-to-day basis.

The solution? PLAIN WHITE BIBS. I wanted to make some bibs that are soft enough for Lola to wear every day over her clothes while she’s in this lovely drooley stage, and require no matching or fuss. Just grab and go. I’ve used knit from both an old crib sheet and maternity t-shirt that never fit me well, and they make the perfect Spit Bib!

They are super soft, and won’t chaff your little one’s neck, and you can have a pile whipped up during one naptime!

Instructions: 1. Print pattern and cut out of 3-4 layers of knit. With thicker knit, you may only want 3 layers, but if it’s on the thinner side, I like to use 4.

2. Cut small squares of interfacing (1/2″-3/4″ on each side) and fuse to wrong side of each layer where snap will sit.

3. Layer all knit pieces, matching raw edges, and pin together.

4. Using a ball point needle and a long narrow zig zag stitch (so your stitch won’t break as the bib gets tugged on), stitch through all knit layers around the entire bib.

5. Attach your snaps using a snap fastener or following the manufacturer’s instructions.

When the bibs are washed, the edges will curl up, creating a look like this:

Enjoy that little drooler!
