Kerchief bibs are sew easy! They take 5 minutes to cut up, 5 minutes to sew and 5 minutes to place a snap or closure. That's only 15 minutes for the entire thing! Straight sewing only needed and very little fabric.
You can add fancy snaps as I did but if you don't have a snap setter, add some velcro, it's readily available and easy to sew in.
These bibs are trending right now as new mom's like how different they look than a traditional bib.
Bibs made ready for gift giving
I have made lots of them!
Pretty pearlized snaps help to add colour and easy closures to these bibs. The Snap Setter www.snapsource.com/snaps/snap-sets/pearl-snap-sets/ is my go to tool for putting on snaps for all of my projects, I highly recommend it. This makes it easy to add snaps to your project with just a small "ladies" hammer.
