You probably have a purchased bib that will work for a pattern. I like to use a paper bag to trace my pattern onto. Then, layer fabric and backing right sides together and cut out.
For my bibs, I didn't worry too much about using the straight of grain when cutting up the chenille, but instead paid attention to the pattern on the bedspread. I even put a little blue flower on one!
Next, sew around the layered fabric pieces leaving a small opening on one side to turn the bib through. Clip the curved area around the neck before turning and pressing. You might want to trim the seams to about 1/4inch wide if they seem too bulky.
I top stitched close to the edge all around the bib to close the opening and neaten the outside of the bib. Attach a snap at the neck or use Velcro, as I did, to make the bibs reversible.
Now, go find a cute baby who needs some new bibs to keep her outfits dry and clean!
She will be the envy of all her friends in the nursery!
