I've found through babysitting, that babies make a lot of drool. They also are capable of distributing said drool quite freely and indiscriminately. Thus the baby bib.
I made these from the Bend the Rules Sewing book by Amy Karol that Nathan got me for Christmas. They are a bit smaller than they are supposed to be because I didn't read the instructions properly and didn't realize the pattern didn't have a 1/4" seam allowance. Ah well. I tested them on a MooreWest baby and they fit fine.
I sent them up to good friends up in Toowoomba with a drooly (but ever so cute) baby boy.
