I am a big fan of the one of a kind, totally you, made it myself kind of a gift. First, because it shows that you really thought about the person. Second, because spending time working on a project for someone shows love. And third, it's usually cheaper as long as you are ignoring the "time is money" rule. So when a friend of mine had a baby boy and named him Griffin I knew instantly what I would be making him.My first tip for bib making is backing them with chenille. I always back my bibs in chenille because it's soft on their skin and so absorbing. My other tip for a great bib is to double top stitch the edges. This gives it a more professional look. I always use a double needle so that the distance stays perfect as well. It takes a minute to change out the needle and get everything set up, but I think it is well worth the effort.
I hope baby Griffin likes drooling on them!
