Cloth Bib Purse

This project is so quick and easy to make and can be used for a variety of uses. I turned my bibs into a purse and also a hangup bag for baby bits in the nursery.

Cloth Bib Purse

What you need

2 Identical Cloth Bibs
Sewing machine
Optional Coat Hanger


You could use rubber backed bibs for wet items, such as dirty wipes, wet cloths etc.

You just throw it into the washing machine to clean it.

Start by placing your two bibs together right sides facing each other. Then sew around the outside edges.

Turn it right side out and your basic purse is made.

You can slip in a coat hanger to make a hangup bag before sewing around the edges.

You can add pockets by sewing on a small rectangle of fabric or add some bling bling by sewing in a beaded fringe.

The opportunities are endless but it’s a fun little bag that’s versatile and inexpensive to make.
