Easy Baby Bib with Contrast Trim Crochet Pattern
free crochet pattern from cRAfterChick.com
This free crochet pattern is for an easy baby bib that even advanced beginners can make! I was struggling to find out what to make for all the new little ones in my family for this past Christmas holiday when I stumbled across a cute cupcake bib made of fabric and thought it might turn out cute in crochet. You can never go wrong with cupcakes. 😉 I’m so glad I did. I ended up making sixteen bibs for gifts. Yes sixteen but they whipped up so fast I was surprised, so here is what I did to make them. There are links for applique patterns I used from other places for the cupcake, car and snowman at end of pattern if you want to try them too.
