Quick Bibs for Messy Babes

Cub has been growing out of his sleepers so quickly (and crawling so much) that he's literally wearing holes in the toes and knees of his cotton sleepers. I can't really repair them, and it's so sad to have to toss an entire sleeper when the rest of the fabric still has lots of life left!
So I came up with a way to fashion them into bibs, using the back and button.
I then backed it using an old towel that was destined for the rag bag anyway and voila! A new bib with a button closure in a cute cotton fabric.
Also - - I can't sew.
Like barely at all, and even my straight lines are crooked.
So if I can do with with 0 skill, I'm sure everyone else could do a MUCH better job! LOL!

Great idea!

I like that they are longer than most bibs for sale and actually cover the whole front.
Good night. Drive safely. Here's a tiny ad for the road:
