Project #3: Waterproof Bibs.
It’s been some time since I last posted a Baby Smith Handmade project. I’ve been on a bib rampage lately. 1) Because my baby’s alias is “Drooley Julie.” 2) Majority of bibs found in stores these days are worthless because once my baby soaks her bib, her clothes are most assuredly next in line to get wet.
So in answer to this problem, I marched myself to the fabric store, found some waterproof baby dry vinyl and sandwiched it in between a slice of lovely cotton fabric and a slice of cozy cotton flannel. Greg added the snaps — which I like much better than velcro. I love the finished product — so much cuter than store bought bibs if I don’t say so myself. And waterproof! I can’t fully explain it, but it really does feel good to see my baby wearing handmade.
