Fabric & Supplies


  • Fabric: Use light to medium weight knit fabrics such as jersey or college. You can also use other fabrics, for example cloth terry for the back piece of the bib. For bib C you can use woven fabrics if you’d like.

  • If you’re sewing variant A, B or D you will also need snap buttons and appropriate tools, such as Prym pliers. You will also use interfacing or a piece of woven fabric to re-enhance the area where you attach the snap buttons.

  • Useful tools: Fabric scissors or rotary cutter and cutting mat, pins/clips, textile glue.
  • Sewing machine with a jersey or ballpoint needle. An overlocker/serger can also be used for most of the steps, but you don’t need to have one.

This is an estimate for prewashed fabrics with 150 cm (60”) width. Fabric for flutter and chest pocket is included.
If you’re buying new fabric for your project, I recommend that you add 10-20 cm (4-8”) just in case. The fabric requirement is calculated for the largest size of the bibs.
