DIY Bandana Drool Bib Tutorial (TWO different styles!)

I hope you're all enjoying your weekend. We've been having a pretty relaxing weekend here. I've been having fun with some sewing projects, Daniel has been working hard on building our custom patio table and benches, and the kids have been hanging with us both. Today I am going to share with you my most recent sewing project, DIY Bandana Drool Bibs! Okay, so I've seen these around on pinterest/instagram and have wanted to try and make some. Now, keep in mind that I'm  more of a trial and error kinda gal. I didn't follow a pattern or tutorial for these (which is how I ended up with two different styles and many different sizes!) :) I think it's more fun that way anyway, gives each one a different look. 
Here are the two different styles that I ended up with - I think I prefer the second style best. It was easier to make and I like the look better, too. Below you will find a tutorial for each style, and pictures of how they look on.
**This style looks more like the original bib shape
1. Pick your fabric (two pieces) I used the cuddle flannel fabric and a super soft ribbed fabric (not up to date on my fabric terms :) haha) But really anything will work.
2. One piece at a time fold your fabric and use THIS pattern to cut the basic shape out and repeat on your second piece of fabric, making sure they both match up. 
3.Once you cut our your shape, put the fabrics "good" sides together and sew around the entire shape leaving a 2 inch hole, to pull your fabric through.
4. Pull your fabric through and sew straight stitch around the entire shape closing the opening as well. 
5. Add your snaps - I used Pearl Snap Fasteners (dritz brand) These seriously, couldn't have been any easier and they work great! Follow instruction and attach to your bib. You might want to test it out on your baby first to make sure you place them in the best spot. Here is what it looks like...
and on...
**This style is more of the modern "bandana" style
1. Pick your fabric (two pieces) 
2. Make a fold in your fabric and cut an isosceles triangle. with the long side being 16 inches total and the other two sides 12 inches each.  With your fabric folded though you will make a 12" cut and 8" cut.
3. Follow steps #3-5 above!
That's it! Here is how it looks completed...
and a few while on...
