Baby Bibs made from T-shirts

My daughter is a Maya Indian adopted from Guatemala.  She has beautiful black hair and black eyes.  When she was a baby I didn’t want anything that was typical!  Bibs or clothes with pretty pink bunnies or cute yellow chicks on them, just didn’t fit her.   I was constantly on the lookout for more “edgy” baby clothes……unfortunately I couldn’t find much.   This led me to make these bibs.  She is now 11 and of course doesn’t use bibs anymore, but she is the inspiration behind them  I serged them to add to their “edginess”!  All are totally washable and have a velcro fastener.  AND of course are made from recycled t-shirts!
