  1. NICE IDEA.I WILL TRY SOON. I MADE A PLAIN WHITE BIB. I DIDNOT DYE OR FABRIC PAINT WITH THE FEAR OF CHEMICAL REACTIONS OR ALLERGIES

  2. Great idea for a burp cloth!

  3. i Love the Idea thanks..never would have thought.

  4. I have been looking for baby burp towels, I made a quilt and have leftover fabric.
    I made the quilt in flannels and cotton. This gives more ideas how I will do this.

    These are very cute, and great for gifts.

    Thank you,
    Donna

  5. I went one step further…..I made bibs out of wash cloths. I cut a hole (for the neck) and then I took seam binding and sewed it all around the the neck area and the rest of the bib leaving enough seam binding to use as ties to tie the bib on. Then I took cut outs of fabrics (Winnie the Pooh, hot air balloons etc) and some I zigzag sewed on the bib/washcloth and some I used iron on adhesive to put the cut outs on. Not only are the bibs big enough (for when the toddler starts to feed themselves) but then you just wet it and use it as a washcloth to clean their face and hands when their finished eating.

  6. I made these many years ago from flannelfor baby showers. They were unique then and used instead of cloth diapers (when pampers were just coming in vogue. These are more practical and cuter. Thanks
