I make bibs, lots of bibs. Many other people do, I see them on Pinterest and on other blogs. I love the colors and cool ideas but when I see Velcro closings or tie strings I feel for the Mom. I started out with both of those ways to close a bib. I learned the hard way that the child can whip that Velcro bib right off. I also had wiggly kids, not enough time and hand to tie on a bib. I am here to tell you, Snaps are the best closure for homemade bibs.
He also uses the Dritz tools to get those snaps to stay.
I bought the plier like mechanism at Joann Fabrics. If you click on the link it will take you right there. I am just a fan, not a paid endorsement here.
If you are only making one bib, you might as well make it the right way!
I get the bibs done and I float them down from the loft to him.
He has 3 different plastic bags.
He selects two of the covers.
He also selects one receiving piece and one with a piece that fits in the receiving piece.
Once he has selected a top and a back piece, he lines them up.
Then he uses the pliers.
He lines them up. First he just pushes down.
Then he uses his muscles and it is secure.
Line them up and get the pliers.
Get it on the pieces gently.
Now Macho Macho Man takes over!
Cute bibs that are functional. Clean baby. Well, relatively.
