We’ve (maybe it’s just me) have been a bit anxious for Cubbie’s imminent arrival. Even though I’m in a strange paradox, feeling so over this sweaty and swollen pregnancy, yet feeling terrified of being outnumbered,  I am still doing a good amount of nesting.

Of course,  I have published quite a few baby patterns in the past, but I am using my newfound baby pattern inspiration to come up with some brand new ideas. I really wanted to create some modern bib designs, as my kids are generally major droolers. Triangle bandana bibs are certainly all the rage right now, and of course I couldn’t help myself from adding a bit of fringe into the mix as well.

Since crochet baby bibs need to be absorbent, I highly, highly suggest using cotton yarn.

I chose Debbie Bliss Eco Baby for the cactus print triangle bandana crochet baby bib and the toddler fringe bib.  I really love the modern colors of this line as well. Even though it’s a finer weight, I doubled up and absolutely love the finished drape of the Eco Baby bibs. They are perfect for The Drooler as well as The Chewer (my kids were both of these!).

The triangle shape of these bandana crochet baby bibs is delightfully perfect for Baby. The top of the bib tucks right under Baby’s chin, sure to catch any milk or drool, and my niece and nephew (yes, they are twins!) loved chewing on them during our modeling session.

(Well, they were happy through most of it!)

The toddler bib is less helpful with drooling, but perfect for keeping those darling little outfits clean during mealtime.

Oh fringe! I hope you stay trendy for a while longer.
