It seems to be very difficult for me to find cute things to sew for boys. Here is one of my more recent projects I made quickly for baby Alexander. Scroll down to see pictures of him wearing this adorable handmade bib.


  • Fabric
  • Scissor
  • A Bib that you like the shape
  • 1 set of snaps and snap pliers or velcro
  • Paper and pen and ruler
  • Thread and Sewing Machine
  • Iron


  1. Fold store purchased bib or previous hand made bib lengthwise. Place on paper and trace the shape. Use a ruler and mark 1/2 inch marks to add to your stencil.
  2. Pin your stencil to fabric and cut or trace on fabric. You need 2 pieces one for the back and one for the front. (I used cotton print for my front, left from a quilt and terrycloth for my back.
  3. Cut out.
  4. Pin your  2 pieces right sides together or the pretty sides of the fabric facing each other.
  5. Begin sewing using 1/4 inch stitch. I choose to start on the side. Don’t forget to back stitch locking your stitches in place. Also leave about 2 inches open.
  6.  Now use that 2 inch opening and pull the bib out through the opening so the right side is out.
  7. Use and Iron and press out and set your seams. Make sure to tuck in you 2 inch opening and press and pin in place.
  8. Place you bib in your sewing machine again to top stitch the bib.
  9. To complete either sew on Velcro or if you have snaps press them in place.
