Ruby is three and a half months old. This means she drools. A lot. I didn't want to go out and spend a bunch on ugly bibs with sayings like 'Daddy's Princess' on them (no offense if you're into those) so I bought one ugly bib and then used it as a pattern to make my own. Now I'm ready for the drool.
To make your own you'll need a bib (for your template), two coordinating fabrics, chenille, velcro, scissors, straight pins, and a sewing machine.
Place the bib on your chenille, trace and cut out. Cut a strip of fabric about 3" x 14" and pin the top, middle, and bottom of it to the center of your bib. Pleat your fabric evenly and stitch down the center.
Cut out a small square of velcro and stitch it to the top of one side. Put the chenille face down onto your other fabric and pin down. Cut around your pattern. Then stitch around the edges stopping about 3" short of where you started. Unpin and turn right side out.
Iron flat and stitch around the outer edges. Stitch the other side of your Velcro piece on the back side. Then test it out to see how pretty it looks on your little one.
Simple and quick because who has time to waste when there are babies cooing at you!
