I recently fell back in love with embroidery and have a baby on the way so naturally I want to embroider all things cute and cuddley.  I want to embroider a series of bibs for the little tyke and am interested in finding soft plain white bibs to create my masterpieces on.  I have searched the various craft stores JoAnn's, Michaels, etc and all I can find are scratchy bibs that usually have some sort of border etc.  Can anyone recommend a place to purchase plain white bibs, preferably a soft terry of some sort.

I would try the baby section of your favorite discount department store (Kmart, Target, etc)

if you're near an IKEA, i saw packs of 5 blank bibs for $4.99.  i almost bought some to embroider but couldn't do it since i don't know anyone who's expecting right now.

There's a stitchable white bib available on the "blanks" page at Sublime Stitching:

Last year we went in search of affordable, soft, absorbant new born type bibs and ended up making our own.  For the "bib body", we used soft, 100% cotton, shirting material at $2.88/yard; which happened to be white.  We encased the "bib cut-out" in bais tape both purchased on clearance, and then self made when we ran out.  We made our bias tape out of bias cut strips from an old sheet purchased at a second hand store; the entire queen sized sheet cost $1.25, the purchased bias tape was @.17/yard.  The over-all total cost per bib was about $.35 including the thread used.

Thanks for the tips everyone,  I appreciate it. 

Unfortunately the closest IKEA to me is 4 hours away Cry.  I never realized how much I would miss that store when I moved from Chicago to Columbus, OH.  Over the weekend I did manage to find some plain bibs at Target, they came in a 4 pack of colors though so pink, blue green and yellow will have to do for now.
