Awgh teething, it can be one of the most miserable periods of a babys little life. Thankfully no one ever remembers it. But bibs, those sodden pieces of cloth draped around a babies neck are so neccessary to collect the dribble and keep clothing dry.
Some bibs are betters than others, in soaking up the wetness and staying good looking. I personally like the infinity scarf looking bibs, or dribble catches as I have called them.
I don't know if there are acres of patterns out there for these as I have not looked. I just played around with a piece of fabric till I got the size and shape I liked, and, I thought would look the best for the longest. And then I looked for fabric that had good absorbancy and drying qualities and can up with these.
All made from scrap fabric outer, and fleece cotton inner from a Levana factory off cut. I chose the fleece cotton based on the fabrics used in cloth nappies. If I had not had the cotton fleece, I would have used poly fleece. Both as I understand it have excellent moisture wicking properties. Just what you need in a dribble catcher. I used hook and eye closure, as these are reclaimable and recyclable. You could also use velcro as a closure or a button and hoop or snaps.
