Fold your main fabric in half and cut it to a 32 inches long and 13 inches wide size. For the bib section, fold the fabric in half and mark 6½ inches from the folded section and the mark another 10½ inches. Connect those marks and lines, cut them off then set them aside. Take the accent fabric and prepare it for the pocket and straps. Fold the fabric in half with the wrong sides together. Cut 4 strips of 2½ inches wide size then set aside. Unfold the leftover fabric and cut 8 inches by 17 inches.
Take the strips and sew them together to create a long fabric for the strap. Fold it in half lengthwise and press with an iron, fold both sides about ¼ inch, and press. Clip-in place and sew with a ¼ seam allowance, do this all around the strap. For the pocket fabric, press each edges about ¼ inch and press, then sew with a ¼ seam allowance.
Get the main fabric and press all sides about ¼ inch thick except the top edges. Now for the casing on the top edges, make the first fold of ¼ inch, press, then fold another full inch and press. Sew the top edges with a ¼ inch seam allowance but make sure that you leave a hole for the strap to pass through. Lastly, add the front pocket anywhere you like on the main fabric, pin it in place before sewing around. Insert the straps on the casing using a safety pin.
