Corner Chew Bib

If you’re nervous about sewing a corner chew, it couldn't be easier! It’s as simple as pushing a needle through the silicone chew. A straightforward top stitch keeps the chew secure, and the extra soft silicone makes it that much easier to get your needle through. If you need a little extra grip, we found our silicone thimbles to be just the ticket!

Supplies Needed:

Step-by-Step Instructions:

1. Download and print our Bib Pattern PDF. Pin two layers of cotton fabric with the good side of the fabric facing inside. Trace the pattern on the fabric, and cut out leaving about 1 inch of extra fabric around.

2. Sew a straight stitch along the pattern lines, leaving one of the straight edges un-sewn for about 3 inches wide. This opening will allow you to flip the bib right side out.

3. Trim back your excess to about ¼ of an inch of the seam. Angle out your cutting around your opening - this will make your final stitching easier.

4. Using the hole left along the one straight edge, flip your bib right side out. Iron your bib so that the seams lay flat.

6. If you have a Button Metal Rod, use that to push a hole at the top of your bib about 1 inch from the sides. If you don’t have a Metal Rod, you can also use a sharp pencil or carefully use scissors. Following the instructions for your plastic snaps, fasten your snap on your bib.

7. On the opposite side, fasten the coordinating snap, being sure to do it in the opposite way as the first so that your snaps will fasten together.

9. Take your sewing needle and thread. Knot your string under the edge of the corner chew where you won’t be able to see it. Once secure, start pushing the needle all the way through your chew from front to back.

10. We like to sew along the channel along the top of the corner chew where the silicone is thinner. For extra grip, your silicone thimbles will work perfectly! *Please note that these thimbles will not stop a needle from poking you.
