Easy Homemade Baby Bib

Here is a really easy and cheap way to make baby bibs, use an old vinyl tablecloth. I bought this tablecloth from Walmart for like $4 about a year ago. It had its fair share of hard use and when it had one to many gross spots we took it off. I love the bright color so I wanted to do something with the extra material that still looked good and a baby bib was perfect!

I traced out my favorite bib making it a little bit longer and wider. I like it to cover Addie's shoulders, she always turns her head and gets her shoulder all gross.

I pinned up the bottom to make a little "pocket" for fallen food and sewed it down.

I then just used this bias tape to go around the edges to give it a more finished look. Finished it off with some Velcro and there you have it.

Here is the finished bottom pocket. I do not sew straight, that is about as straight as it's going to get.

It's really hard to get a picture of the finished project, even if you tempt toddlers with fruit snacks.

I love this because you can make SO many out of one tablecloth. You also don't even have to add the bias tape. To make it even simpler just cut out the bibs (the vinyl material doesn't fray) and safety pin them on. I'm going to do that with the rest of the tablecloth. I'm a very lazy crafter.

The wipe-off bibs are my favorite!! What a great idea to repurpose and make your own!!! By the way, I totally understand about trying to photo a very active baby. It's like a moving target!
