I can't recall where I first saw one of these bandana bibs, but there are good tutorials all over the web. These are genius if you have a spitter or drooler (J is both). It feels like every time you get the baby dressed up in a cute matching outfit he immediately proceeds to cover the front of it with spitup. And regular bibs aren't ideal since they make baby look like he's about to have a meal. These bibs do double duty as a spitup/drool catcher and a stylish accessory. :)
I made five of these in just an hour or two, though I ran out of snaps so two of them are unfinished. I added a little tag to each one, just because tags are fun. Some tutorials suggest backing them in toweling, which would certainly be more absorbent; I used flannel because I didn't want them to be too thick or stiff. These would be adorable shower gifts and would be simple for even a novice sewer.
I've also been playing around with some applique, which I always thought I hated, and actually don't.
Instant gratification as my WIPs languish. Someday baby will sleep through the night and I will have more time for sewing. Right? Right?
