#3. Baby Bib

Unfortunately, there is a lack of children in my family. I am the youngest of 6 cousins (including my brother) and although they are older and in the “baby having” age range, none of them are ready to have children soon. They are all excelling in their careers and traveling the world and just don’t have time for kids. Understandable and good for them. It does get a little depressing not having any little ones running around at holidays though. No one to play with or take to the zoo or make crafts for.  
This summer, I was involved in a community theater production and one of the women I became close with in the show is due any day now with a baby boy. I’ve always wanted to make something for a baby and this is really the first opportunity I’ve had since no one in my family is having one anytime soon.
After browsing around the internet looking for inspriation, I found this very simple pattern for a bib over at Purlbee
I found a great fabric over at Hobby Lobby (my new favorite place) and I really love how it turned out!
I bought a fat quarter at Hobby Lobby and I had some plain, white cotton at home for the back, so fabric: $2.78
Thread: Free
Snaps: Free (I had them at home)
Total: $2.78
Congrats (in advance) to Sam and her husband and I hope they enjoy the bib!
