Creating Bibs

So, I thought I'd post the creative process of making my bibs.  I began by laying out potential fabrics with the washcloths.
Auditioning fabrics

The first cut was the hardest, but once I began, I wanted to continue...
Cut off the bottom edge
A friend suggested making pockets at the bottom edge of the bibs
Stack waiting for pockets to be sewn

Once I stitched two washcloths together, I made final decisions for fabric.

Stitching the neck 
I purchased bias binding for the necks from In Grandma's Attic at 
The only thing left is to add the Velcro!
 Unfortunately, my sewing machine quit on me at this crucial point!!!!  I need to take it to be serviced... More to come!
