Right before our family went to Disney World, I decided that my 1.5-year old son really needed some nicer-looking bibs. I also wanted him to have something nice and new for the trip (even though they are nothing compared to the princess dresses…). I’d made some denim bibs (the lighter ones, on the left in the photo below) for him last summer, so I quickly whipped up some more.
I used worn-out jeans from Husband, cutting out the bib fronts from the parts of the legs where there weren’t holes or weakened fabric.
The bibs are backed with other scrap fabric from my stash; most of them are actually backed with jersey knit because I thought it would be comfy. I found some heavy-duty snaps that you hammer in place (sew-on snaps just didn’t hold up to everyday wear-and-tear!)
I decorated a few of them: two have machine embroidery:
And this last one has a quick fabric applique to cover some paint splotches (Husband had worn the old jeans to do some painting around the house!)
