Cowboy, Baby (Easy Bib Tutorial)

For as long as I can remember, my mom has been making these cute cowboy bibs. I was delighted when she gifted Tate a set of these while we were home for Christmas, and with her permission, I am sharing the super easy tutorial.

    Now you are ready to get to the good stuff: food!

I love these bibs not only because they are cute simple to make, but also because they really do the job. They thoroughly protect your baby’s clothes and wash like a dream. They also have the added bonus of being made of a washcloth for quick face wipe downs after a messy meal.

A big thanks to my mom, Margaret Petersen, for the tutorial.
