For my drool monster – easy ribbon bibs

Ribbon strap bibs

So the drool situation with Kakazi is getting out of control!!!! I hated dealing with a diaper rash that one time she got one at about 8 weeks, so yeah..we are not going there again. Plus I can never find a bib when I really need one. These are fun to make and a good way to use up scrap fabrics and ribbons you might have around. I think these are to adorable.

For the back, I used the vibrantly coloured and surprisingly cheap Haren towels from Ikea:

They are nice and fluffy and very absorbent.

Inspiration. We run out of bibs..again, on a recent visit to Babi's and we had to improvise with these old hankies.

The pattern, I drafted myself and I like how these aren’t bulky at all.

Cut both fabrics on fold, pinned together to make for exact matching pieces

Pinning. I cut the straps a little longer to allow for adjustments.
