My Favorite Kind of Baby Bib.. the pullover bib!  Hands down. The best. The velcro doesn't wear out, and little hands don't pull them off! 

So when I got some strips of Happy Flappers (an upcoming line from Riley Blake) in the mail the other day (the happiest mail ever!)..

..I decided to stitch enough of them together to make one! I haven't made them since my son was small, and I forgot how much I love them. I had made some for my son after buying these kind..
 ..and realizing the necks were too loose, and food would still get inside on the neck of his shirt.  Here's one of the first ones I made for him. 

He wore it until it wouldn't fit over his head anymore.  Well into his second year. You can see they absorb a lot of drool, too. :D *sigh* The time flew by so fast! I really do miss those cheeks!

So I decided to use the flannel strips, and part of a knit strip for the neck. And oh my goodness it turned out so cute!  Look at how cute the matching knit is on the neck band!  My son's were very plain compared to this one! This one is fancy! ;)

Can you see where I goofed with one of the strips?

Yep, there is a little upside down owl on the brown strip!  I didn't even notice until it was done. :)

I backed it with some chenille that I already had, so it's super soft and absorbent. 

And embellished it with a little folded flower, made out of some Riley Blake dots, and a button from my Grandma's button jar..

..and took way too many pics of it b/c the fabric is so cute!

And then gave it to this little cutie, after she (barely) agreed to try it on for me. :) She's very serious! And adorable!  (*and her mom gave me permission to share this photo*) She's such a doll isn't she?

Thanks for reading!  Hope you're having a great weekend! I want to go make another now.  Bib.. not baby. haha! ;)

How cute is your son's baby photo! I love your bib. I would avoid velcro bibs - they would wreak havoc in the washing machine. It's amazing how many items of clothing can get stuck to one little square of velcro on a bib. I probably should have just thrown the velcro bibs in a wash bag, but I blame baby brain at the time!

The bib is cute, the recipient doesn't look entirely convinced though ;o)

Very cute--do you have instructions???

Cute! The upside down owl just makes it so that the baby can see the owl rightside up!

Adorable!!! The bibs and babies!
Gorgeous fabrics!
Happy Easter!

Agree totally, Kelli... pullover bibs are SO much easier than those with ties or velcro. The fabric you've used is adorable!!!

Super cute bib! I really could've used a bib like this for my daughter when she was a baby. With regular bibs, she would still get messy, and I would end up just taking off her shirt instead of using a bib when she ate foods like spaghetti. Maybe I'll make something like this for my next baby. Thanks for sharing at Submarine Sunday!!

So cute! I will have to make a few for the grand baby.

Oh so adorable! Super cute fabric and fantastic design! Love it Kelli! And thanks for nice to have you play along! Xx

That is SO cute. Do you have a pattern for it?

Love this! I featured it on this weeks Check Me Out Saturday Link Party highlights. I am going out of town and won't have access to a computer so I am letting you know a day early. The post will go live tomorrow morning but here is the link:

Kelli, this is so super cute! I even love the little upside down owl! Thank you for sharing. You will be one of the features tomorrow at the Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. Hope to see your prettiness again tomorrow at the bash! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

These baby bibs are really cute and the design is so awesome. A lot of mothers has a problem with their toddlers that keeps on pulling off their baby bib and I think the solution is just here. The little ones can't pull it off no matter how hard they try. Well done!
