As any of you who has ever tried to watch TV.... and eat at the same time... knows, something almost always spills...and often you end up ruining a nice or even favorite piece of clothing. Time to protect and defend the elderly with a 'senior' bib!
And as someone who is almost ready for a working model for myself, I know this will not only be appreciated for its feminine look.... unlike a typical adult bib, or the use of a kitchen towel upon one's front.....but for its practicality. It's simply made of a few pieces of fabric, a simple pattern and a little trim. And it can be opened and closed with a simple velcro closure in the back.
And furthermore, it's actually two patterns in one! One side of the pattern is a lady's version with a round collar, and the other side, a typical pointed-end gentleman's collar. Add a bow or a little ribbon for the lady (and perhaps a few decorative buttons) and a nice homemade bow tie for the man.
See all the photos and directions and tips at my primary blog where I shared many thousands of wonderful tutorials of things that I've made besides lots and lots of quilts etc.
Please become a follower there as I share my life, my art, my fun, and yes..all those free things that have placed me at the top of many, many search lists..and I am so very grateful for that.
Happy Holidays this Spring.
Rejoice and Renew!!!
