Dishtowel Bib





Catherine Hall's mom had this idea and I loved it. I have been looking for a bib with sleeves and one that is tight fitting. My kids destroy their clothes when they eat, even with a plastic bib on. So here is the solution. This is a bib made out of dishtowels purchased at Costco. They come in a pack of 10 for 13.86? I think. The only other purchase is bias tape. Or in my case I bought some cheap fabric at walmart and made my on bias tape. Either way (maybe 1 or 2 dollars?)
Here is a slideshow of the instructions start to finish. Even a "non-sewer" can do this. If you don't have a sewing machine come over and you can borrow mine. I'd be glad to help.

I'd be very interested in a class! We could do it before your baby comes...

I love this idea. It's one I might actually be able to keep on Travis. I have to change his shirt a couple times a day it seems. I'd love a class, too.
Thanks, Denae

We are doing a super saturday in August. Is this a good time? Or do you want it done sooner? I am ok with whatever.
