I like to hold straight pins in my mouth.

I cut a bib shape out of the shirt, making sure to cut into the back too so there would be room to fasten the bib


I used a large freezer storage bag to make it 'waterproof'. Hope it holds up, I won't know my niece puts it to the test!


Instead of pinning, I taped it so I wouldn't weaken the plastic


I used a zig zag stitch at the neckline


I did a really sloppy job around the edges, but it's going to get covered in food anyway and I'm sure she won't mind.

Nice! Let us know if the bag hold up - I was thinking about that as well but I was sure it would get thorn in the washer...

This is so super! I am going to make a few with some vintage Tshirts I have here. What a super idea. I am hoping that the freezer bag would hold up? I am thinking of trying one with freezer bag and maybe one with pull.
Thanks for posting!
