bibs

I found these cute towels at Target yesterday and knew
exactly what I was going to use them for!
Two in package. Two dollars. Good deal.


I've been needing to replace (update) these old bibs.
They have been GREAT!
Long, long ago I received some hand towels that I
didn't really like and they sat in a cupboard.
Then, I had a shirt with those sheep on it that got a stain
or something that made it "unwearable".
I appliqued the cute sheep on.
Put some binding around the top edge.
Voila!

This one's not as cute.
But, boy these bibs work!!
The towel is thick, soft and these bibs have seemed to
last forever!!




Since I like my old ones so much I used them as a guide.
The dimensions are 12"x16".
So....I trimmed the new towels down.




Cut some binding...on the bias (1 1/2"wide) so that it will be easy
to bend it around that neck.





See? Isn't this one sweet?
So, I've now updated my bib drawer.

My little girl and our little visitors....
will be eating in "style".
I'm adding this post to amylou's show and tell.

  1. Very cute! I'll have to keep my eye open for just the right dish towels. I can't ever seem to think of stuff like this when I'm actually in the store though....:)

  3. Bibs made from towels are the greatest. I've made them for years. (And years and years!) I mean towels are meant to be washed over and over, right? What better for bibs that often make it through only one wearing. Yours are cute, cute, cute. Thanks for sharing.
