Cut out the pattern (which you'll only use as a general guide). I folded the shirt in half along the front so that I could just print half the pattern then line up the pattern along the fold. I used a microfiber towel from the dollar store for the backing. Pin and sew the pieces together leaving a gap so you can turn it (if you have a serger, I'd probably just sew it right sides out and call it good). I used a snap instead of velcro since that is what I had on hand. Now, who has a slobbery kid who needs a new bib?
