Pattern for Bandana Bib

Post by AngelaParker » Wed May 12, 2010 7:16 pm

As Little Miss 5 month old slept today, I whipped up a bandana bib. I was pleased to actually finish something, but it doesn't sit properly under the chin. Suggestions please/where can I buy a pattern. Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I'm not sure whether there is a pattern you can buy, but the ones I make have a slight dip at the top (ie. the edge that goes by the neck) and I've seen others that have some elastic at that edge

Yeah, I do a dip under the chin, and also make mine much deeper than any I've ever purchased - 19cm from chin to bottom point. That makes it sit nicely, and actually catches the huge amount of dribble my wee guy emits. Most bandana bibs don't!

Oh I wish I read your posts before I made my bandana bib, oh well trail and error. Mine has a dip at the base of the neck and sits nicely but I'm wishing I made it longer, so I will have to take up your suggestion. I just love the Bandana bibs and they are so cute, I'll never buy one again now that I can make them :D

You don't need them to be long. A lot that I have made have not been very long at all. Its mainly to catch the dribble under the chin. When I first made them, K was getting a bad rash under his chin. After wearing the bibs for a day it had gone and his clothes remained dry.

There are lots of things you'll never buy again now :wink: .

i agree. i made mine really big esp when ds was still spitting up but when it was just dribble mine were very small, almost like an oversized collar lol... but they did what they were made to do - stop dribble wetting clothes! and didnt cover his nice clothes when we went out!
