What materials did you use? A printed out version of this pattern. a plastic, flannel backed table cloth a little more than a1/3 yard fleece* ( could make several from this) thread, needle button Elastic or pony tail holder * You can replace the fleece for terry cloth or all flannel - this pattern works with other fabrics!

What are you most proud of? Figuring out to use a crochet hook to turn the long strap by grabbing the elastic that holds the button.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use a cheap table cloth first before using expensive vinyl backed cotton!

You need to be careful what flannel backed plastic you use, oil cloth for table clthes should not be used...

You're right - I learned actually it's just better "learn the pattern on cheap table cloth and then use cotton backed vinyl for your actual project.

I have used a printed flannel back and the clear vinyl for the front/pocket liner. Be careful that the vinyl you use is rated to be tossed in the dryer/doesn't emit fumes while baby wears it. If you ask the cloth merchant, they should be able to tell you if it can be put in the dryer or not. If you are still not sure, don't risk it. Also, I left an opening in the backing at the bottom of the finished bib so that it could be turned inside-out,if needed, to wipe any soap residue or to clean any mildew-attracting residues out the the inner corners and such between the vinyl and the backing.

Great pointers! I like to use a lysol wipe and avoid the washer - if I make a the front and back from vinyl. I also will line dry bibs..

I have also modified this pattern so it can be used with terrycloth - to avoid the issue of 'baby safe" vinyl.

I was meant to see this. My great nephew came today and left his bib and I called his mummy and she said to leave it here. I asked her how much they are to buy and she said they cost 1.50 each. I thought I would start making her some and then I saw your star pillow on Crafty & then found this :D Thank you for some great projects. I am going to get started at weekend.
