There are so many easy bib tutorials out there, but most of them use cute fabric that isn’t waterproof. Once I had toddlers that were eating table food, those little cloth bibs didn’t cut it. So, I came up with a way to make an easy bib out of a reusable shopping bag! Yes, that’s correct. They are super cheap and come in so many different patterns, so it’s the perfect way to create a diy reusable bib that is waterproof. Ready to make one for yourself??
I found a $0.99 shopping bag at Marshalls and thought it was so adorable. I’ve seen similar ones at Joann’s and Hobby Lobby for very cheap. The material is perfect to make something waterproof. I’ve also made a tablet cover from a shopping bag as well as some velcro pouches that you can stick in your purse!
Easy Bib from a Reusable Shopping Bag
First, I took a bib I already had and made a pattern by tracing it. I cut another piece the same size and shape of the bottom portion of the bib, which will be the pocket
Next, you will need some double fold bias tape. I actually made mine, but you could definitely buy some if you wanted to. Sew the bias tape along the top edge of the pocket
Pin the pocket to the bib and now pin bias tape all around the edge of the bib and sew on.
