Baby Bib Questions and No Reply Comments/Emails


If you ask me a question in the comments I try to answer with reply emails. A lot of folks will ask me questions on a lot of the older posts but I have no way to reply to you! So check out this great posting on Blog Tips by Happy Hour Projects on how to do your settings so I and others can reply to questions!
Same with emails! I need to be able to reply if you ask me anything.

On to the baby bib questions.

I have used a lot of different bib patterns. Some are from online and others are older bought patterns. I have to say I will just draw one out on a folded sheet of copy paper.

Use soft washed flannel both sides for infants bibs. Others use cottons or other fabric top and flannel on backs. A great place for flannel is local yard sales or thrifts for receiving blankets. Lot of fabric for 98 cents!  Pre washing( have my own bottle of baby detergent) all fabrics keeps the bibs from shrinking after they have been given. If you like giving 'new' looking and feel though just be sure to tell the Moms it will shrink. The quilting will keep that to a minimum as well.
I have some I am doing now out of hand towels. 

You can use sew on snaps or some use small bag magnets. I use the sew in Velcro. Buy the long strip and cut off what I need.

Sew bibs and burp cloths to be USED. Not to become family heirlooms. So keep this in mind when you buy fabrics!

Hope this helps!!
