These pullover baby bibs are one of the cutest, most practical items I have ever seen in the DIY sewing world. My daughter recently had a beautiful baby boy, making me a first-time grandma. I have made some cute blankets and sleeping shirts for my grandson, but when I saw this easy tutorial by Navy’s Notions on Youtube, I knew I needed to make this towel bib right away. I found a lovely set of hand towels on sale at West Elm, located at the outlet store in San Marcos, Texas, and snatched them right up. Then I went to JoAnn’s fabrics and found some cotton jersey knit that I knew was going to look perfect with my towel selection. I used JoAnn’s app on my phone to get an additional discount, which made this entire project sail in at under $10.



  • Hand towels
  • Stretch jersey fabric
  • Thread
  • Pins
  • A sewing machine
  • Scissors (or a rotary cutter)


First, you will layout your towel and place the circle pattern in the lower portion. Then you will trace the circle and cut it out of the towel, this makes a space for the baby’s head to fit through.

Then, you pin the stretch-jersey to the opening in the towel and either serge it or zig-zag stitch it, if you are using a regular sewing machine.

These baby bibs are so darn cute! I cannot wait to make some bibs for my new grandchild, and I may as well make one for every baby I know!
