The MIMO is a one size fits all reversible bib pattern. With its timeless design, this pattern is an essential piece that you can make over and over again. The tutorial below will show you how to make a seamless bib in two different styles. The small bib can be done as a standard bib or a scallop bib and the medium and large are standard bibs for big kids.
All four bibs have the same neckline and fit most children from newborn to 6 years.
From lightweight to heavy-weight linen, lyocell, silk noil, soft cotton shirting, cotton cheesecloth, cotton voile, hemp, flannelette, corduroy, velvet, denim, any soft, natural woven fabrics with a good drape. Avoid fabrics that are too thick and too stiff if you are making the scallop version.
If your fabric is lightweight and thin, I recommend using interfacing or wadding. You can also add a layer of waterproof fabric inside to prevent the bib from being soiled on both sides.
This pattern is perfect for any embroidery design you may have in mind !
If you are not sure which fabric to use, look up the hashtag #mimomimito on Instagram for inspiration.
Less than half a meter is all you need for this pattern depending on your choice of inner lining. This project is great to use any remnant pieces of fabrics you may have in your stash.
Please note: Make sure your fabric is washed before cutting.
- Matching threads
- Ribbon or a pair of snaps
- Lace or trim (optional)
PDF SEWING PATTERN
This pattern contains two files. A Print At Home file and a Copy Shop file.
The Copy Shop file can be printed at any printing store onto a large piece of paper. It needs to be printed true to size at scale 100%. This specific file fit onto an A3 paper or US equivalent. Remember to measure the check square at the store before you go home to make sure your pattern has been printed correctly.
The Print At Home file can be printed at home with any standard printer at scale 100%. It contains 4 pages that you need to assemble by cutting the margins and taping the pages together following the numbers indicated on each page. This file suits both A4 and US Letter printers.
In this tutorial, we are using a 0.7 cm or 1/4 inch seam allowance and is already included on all pattern pieces.
