My kids have all been droolers. It starts with buckets of spit-up (yet my babies still have thigh rolls, thank goodness!). I always wondered how “burp cloths” worked for anyone  because I needed burp blankets to contain everything!
Next, my kids would absolutely drool allll daaaay. Well-meaning strangers would insist my baby was teething
(for 9 months?!). Every-day-wear bibs were our answer (switched out a few times throughout the day of course!).

Crochet bibs offer even more protection because they are thicker than one layer of fabric and the cotton is super absorbent!

Whip out a couple of these crochet plaid bandana bibs and your drooler will meet her match. It would make a darling baby shower gift too!

      1. Oh it would be SO nice of you! I really, really appreciate it!!! I have also already signed up for your emails as well! Thank you SO much! I fell in love with your buffalo plaid series. And already paid for the moose lovey which I can’t wait to start making. It’s for a baby shower gift for my friends first grandbaby.
        Thank you again, So much!

  2. Hi there! I absolutely love this little bib! I’m a big plaid fan so plaid week is amazing for me! I was wondering what age/size babies do ya think this would fit? And if ya had any advice on how to size the pattern up to fit an older toddler as kind of a cowl/kerchief? My niece is 18 months and I think she’d look just darling wearing this for winter! Thank you in advance! Your patterns are great and always so creative!

    1. Thank you! It fits probably from 3 months to a year. To easily size it up I would suggest maybe putting some chain ties on the corners, you wouldn’t need to alter the crochet pattern that way!

      1. Oooh that’s a great idea! If I make a thick strap with buttonholes for one side and one with a button for the other it should fit for awhile 🤔 thank ya so much!
