Homemade Bibs

My seven-year-old son wanted his latest project as my next post.  However, he's still not finished with it.  So it'll have to wait until later this week.  In the meantime, here's my newest favorite thing!

A friend of my mother-in-law made the most awesome baby bibs.  They're large, they're absorbent, they're...


How brilliant is this idea?  Hand towels with a hole to go over the head?!?  I LOVE it!!  How many times have you had a bib that the baby tugged on and it came off, just in time for them to spit green peas down the front of their white shirt?  Or the bib covered the top half of the baby and wasn't absorbent enough, so when your toddler was learning how to drink out of a cup, you lifted them out of the high chair and it appeared that they had peed their pants?  (But sorry, these bibs won't help you if your toddler really did pee their pants.)

Anyway, these are so simple and so genius.  She simply cut a hole out and serged on a collar.  

Then she added a decorative ribbon to add a touch of cuteness.  

I plan to make a bunch of these.  I don't have a serger, so I'll just zig-zag the collar on.  You could easily repurpose the collar off an old shirt, use ribbing, or use interlock.   

Maybe I'll do an actual tutorial soon.  This will be a fun and easy project.  Useful, too!
