Heirloom Nursery: Handmade Baby Bibs

When it comes to preparing for baby, I've been pretty disappointed in the mealtime linens out there--the bibs simply aren't practical, they're expensive, they're (dare I say it) so gaudy or they just seem so industrial for a little person. Instead, I'm thinking of trying to make a handful of these Martha Stewart towel bibs--I imagine they'll be soft, sturdy, tastefully colorful, imminently washable. What a great shower gift, too! My best friend got us these beautiful jacquard hand towels from Anthropologie (she's got the best taste!) and I'm thinking of getting a few more to try them out. If not for a little person, then why not for sewing up one of these great tea towel aprons? Oh, how I love Martha's craftiness!

They are so pretty! Do NOT waste them on your baby! :) I promise you want the cheapest ugliest bibs you can find because they will be disgusting! You will throw them all away. I'm not saying that you shouldn't have any, but for the majority of times, cheap Target bibs or a regular dishtowel draped across their front works perfect!

We had one of these and I loved it.

I meant to add that I've also seen Dr. and Dentist parents use alligator clips to do the same thing. I always wondered where to get them!
