I remember back when my kids were babies, making baby bibs out of old t-shirts would have been awesome! And even though my kids are way too old for bibs now, I still have some friends with babies, so this would make the perfect baby shower or housewarming type gift for a friend. Maybe even a handmade bib and cloth diapers set complete in a handmade diaper bag for a baby shower gift! Very awesome idea, and not too difficult-sounding of a project, either.

You certainly go thru a lot of bibs in one day! This is a great way to use old T-shirts or even other slightly worn out clothing items to upcycle into something very useful. Embroidering a cute animal or name on the front is a lovely touch - and this would even make a nice baby shower gift! Super project - thanks so much for sharing!
