    I tried making a bib and I don't think I like it but I'll show the picture anyways. I don't know if this will fit around the babies neck or if I should sew on ties or just scrap it all together. Kinda feel discouraged.

    No help with the fitting part but don't be discouraged. That is the cutest bib I have ever seen. I love it and so will baby's mom.

    This bib is sooooo cute! If you're unsure about the fit, some ties would solve the problem for sure.

    Very cute Bib. Why not try some hook n loop tape on either side then there's no need for ties.

    Very cute. Put velcro on it; it looks like it will fit. They don't do ties any more; strangulation hazard and all that.

    This. And if it fits your neck, it'll DEFINITELY fit a baby's neck! lol Before I saw your reply about trying it on, I was going to ask you the "neck loop" measurements and was going to go measure one of my baby's bibs for you to see if it would work! :lol:

    Bibs I use for my grandson have a generous strip of velcro.

    I think that Velcro is a great idea.

    Velcro would work I think. By the way did you use a pattern or just make it up yourself? I have twin grandsons coming in March and was thinking about making some too.

    I got two bibs in a piece of material and just cut them both out then traced around them to get the cotton in the middle and backing them just sewed them together. The name of the fabric I got this from I believe is Beary Berry Patch. I put a link for it at the beginning of this post.
