Dish Towel Crafting

I bought a couple of good quality dish towels with a simple Christmas embroidery design already on them. Then I embroidered Walt and Eli's name above the design.

Now Walt has a bib that covers him up really well when eating.  I used some stretchy knit fabric that I found in the remnant bin at Joann's for the neck.  It pulls over his head easily.  I considered cutting down the width of the towel, but his Mom was happy to have lots of coverage for his shoulders.  After all, that's the main purpose of a bib.

Eli is still too young for a big bib, but he's a big spitter upper, so I left his as is, to be used as a burp cloth.

The bib and burp cloth can be used all winter since the design isn't too Christmasy.

Those are THE best type of bibs... had to make those for my grandgirls... super messy eaters both of them!

Love the towels and the embroidered names too! Great job!

You are putting your embroidery machine to good use. Those are pretty and will be cute in the family photo's that will be taken through the holidays.

Excellent bibs! Years ago, I made some bibs from similar hand towels for my youngest daughter. Today my grandchildren use those bibs.
