Crazy Patchwork Bibs



There are a few babies due or recently born in the family so I thought I would make some bibs out of the scrap, mainly vintage fabrics I have. I got the free pattern from nanacompany .

The peach one has already gone to new baby Grace.
I thought I would save this one for my niece, her mother had a dress in the big pink check fabric. Unfortunately the creases would not come out, probably because it has been folded for so many years! Below, my sister wearing the dress.
