Bandana Dribble Bib

Updated: Nov 14, 2020

Years before I started The Fabric Squirrel, I had my little Crafts by Katie business. I needed a good excuse to sew so I made lots of things to sell at craft fairs and eventually on Etsy. When my eldest was younger he was a real dribbler and I made him lots of bibs. They proved popular on my craft stalls and I made them day in day out. It has been a long time since I made a dribble bib but I am still sure I could do it with my eyes closed. Now Alfie is teething and soaking through his clothes, it is time I dusted off my template.

While at a craft show at the NEC in 2017 I picked him some teethers that can be sewn into bibs and taggy blankets. I don't know the name of the company now but if you do a search for "sew on teethers" there are a lot available, just make sure you purchase ones that are BPA free and passed EN71 safety standards. I didn't get around to using it before he stopped dribbling, but I have known the exact draw in my craft room they have been in all this time waiting for another excuse to use them. In this tutorial I will talk you through how to do one with and one without the teether. You can easily get it finished in 20 minutes.
