How to Sew A Vintage Baby Bib Tutorial

Vintage Baby Bib

Hi there, it is baby season in my family with two new baby girls being born named Charli and Everly, so to celebrate I have come up with a cute vintage-inspired baby bib to sew.

These baby bibs are right on trend with all the hip mammas and although they are lovely with the lace for baby girls, they are just as lovely left plain for baby boys too. They make the perfect handmade gift for baby showers, birthdays, and Christmas.

My Vintage Baby Bib is designed to mix and match, add lace down the center, and/or down the bottom, or leave it plain, it’s entirely up to you.

Making them without the lace makes for a really quick and easy bib, it honestly took me 10 minutes to make!
