What to do with all those old concert tee shirts that crowd my closet? Make my baby a rock star at meal time!
I started with one tee shirt. The smaller, the better the neck hole will fit without alteration.
I traced around an existing bib with a chalk pencil for the correct length.
I cut out the rectangle, cutting through both sides of the shirt, making the front side longer. I then doubled the longer side back under, folding right sides facing each other and pinned. I sewed around the bottom three edges, and stopped on both sides where the two pins are located above on the left and right side. I used 3/8″ seam.
I then folded and pinned the remaining edges for a smoother edge. The nice thing about tee shirt fabric is that you don’t have to worry about fraying, so hemming is not required. I wanted the edges to lay flat, so I opted for a hem.
I used a decorative stitch to create a little more interest.
The finished bib. It fits well over her head, has ample length to catch food, and washes so easily. If the neck hole is too large, the easy fix is to attach a snap so that the opening can be snapped smaller.
