{tutorial} Bandanna Drool Bib for Mr Drool-a-Lot

Franklin has been drooling like the Mississippi River!
But each time I visit Kiddy Palace, 
I just can't bring myself to buy any of those bibs.

The pretty ones are expensive.
The cheap ones are ugly.

It can't be that tough making bibs right?
I am determine to make some really cool looking ones 
that will also effectively dry up the drool pool!

You'll need
1/2 meter Pattern Cotton Fabric
1/2 meter Cotton Terry Fabric
Snap Buttons

On the Wrong Side of the Pattern Cotton Fabric
Draw a 13" Square

Mark the Diagonal line

Pin Cotton terry fabric to Pattern cotton fabric
Right side facing
 Cut out square 
then cut diagonally to form 2 triangle

I've also cut out a slight curve 
on the neckline of the bandanna bib 
so that it will not be so bulky 
on Franklin's near non existence neck..

It should look like this.  
13" on both sides.
The longer curve side is about 18" in length.
It's even big enough to fit right around my neck.
So don't worry about it being too small for your baby.
Sew 0.5cm around the edges.
Leaving a space of 2" open.

Flip the bandanna to the right side 
then sew 1/4" around the edges.

Fix Snap Buttons.

And voila, 
You are all set to rock and roll!

Now get your little munchkin.
It's time to show off that 
Super Duper Awesome Bandanna Drool Bib!!

Total cost per bib is about $4.50Sgd
Project can be accomplished in under an hour.

Now, the only problem is, 
1/2 a meter of fabric will yield 6 bibs.
6 bibs of the same design and pattern.
How boring!
Anybody wants to make these 
and have a Bandanna Drool Bib Swap Party?!?!?

Have Fun!
