Babies are usually very enthusiastic about eating but it often seems like most of their meals end up on their clothes and the floor than in their mouth. Unless you want to do the laundry after every single meal, you’re going to need a bib for your little love! A custom made bib is a super adorable and personal piece that’s one day going to hold immense sentimental value. Here are some DIY bibs to draw inspiration from!

2. Minky Bibs
Babies love to feel different materials and textures. You can notice very soon which materials are their favorite, so if your baby loves super soft fabrics, minky is a great choice to create with. Visit Life with my Littles to learn how you can make your own collection of minky bibs!
