Recycled Dishrag Bibs

I'm not gonna go into huge detail since this is about the easiest project around. I came up with this pattern because Timothy had outgrown his baby bibs but wasn't quite skilled at using a spoon yet. I keep one of these in the diaper bag for when we're at a potluck or eating out. It gives complete coverage so his clothes won't stain and can be thrown in the wash with a load of towels.

Just look at the pictures and you should be able to figure it out. If not shoot me an email.

Step 1. Take a dishrag and fold the longer edge 1/3 of the way down. Cut from the shorter edge to the fold.

Step 2. Cut along the fold itself about 3-4 inches on either side to create a neckline.

Step 3. Open up rag and quickly drape it over your child to be sure there is plenty of room around the neck area.

Step 4. Pin double fold bias tape around the cut edges. Sew in place, taking your time around the curves.

Step 5. Attach a 1 inch velcro square to the top edge. If you don't have velcro just use a large button and make a button hole on the opposite side.

Easy, Right?
