This is probably going to be my new go to gift for a baby shower. Sure you can have boring solid color bibs and boring rags for burp cloths. But why not put fabric scraps to good use and brighten things up a little bit.
The front of the bibs are mostly jersey fabric from left over tshirts which have since been made into quilts. I used flannel for the back of the bibs because it sticks to clothes and makes it lay down better. And for the burp cloths, I bought diapers and zig zag stitched the fabric to them.
This was about 2 hours of work and the only thing I had to buy were the snaps for the bib. You can also use velcro, I just thought the snaps would keep it on better.
Take this type of thing to a baby shower and people go nuts for it. Everyone likes it when they know a gift has been customized. It is nice when it is such an easy project that goes over so well.
