Sunday Parkways puts an end to baby food stains with a new bandana use

          As cute as babies are, they sure can be messy. With this ingenuous bandana baby bib design your baby can fling mashed peas across the room in style. It’s time to break out those sewing kits, and embrace your inner baby fashion guru.

The first thing you’re going to do is cut your bandana into the correct “baby bib” design. We have a template down below that is absolutely foolproof! Simply, fold your bandana along the template, and cut along the lines. You’ll be left with a piece of cloth that resembles something like a boomerang.

            You are going to want two pieces of cloth cut into the same template mentioned above. These are going to be to sewn together. Now, if you want the most fashionable toddler you might want to try to mix up the patterns for each side. Get creative, and have fun with it!

            Once you have your two sides cut out, lay them on top of each other and begin to sew along the edges. Continue to sew until there is only an inch or two left to finish. Stop here, and turn the bib inside out. Now continue to sew the last opening shut to finish the bib. You’re almost done!

            Now all you need to do is attach some fasteners to the ends. You can choose to use fastener snaps, buttonholes, or even Velcro straps. Any method will do just fine as long as it is strong enough to withstand whatever mess your little one throws at it!

            And just like that you’ll have yourself your very own bandana baby bib! Armed and ready to fight against any mess and while still looking as cute as ever.
