Just perfect! Already made two of these, one in laundry and one in use! Thanks for a great pattern.
From spaghetti stains to an Etsy shop!
I can't tell you how many times my daughters have worn amazingly cute outfits only once. Once was all it took to completely destroy them with stains that just would not come out, no matter what I tried!
The only solution was to provide full-coverage. I began crafting patterns and using my littlest one Ava, as a model as I perfected a long-sleeve, laminated cotton bib.
I worked until I had created the ideal pattern for providing coverage but still looking stylish. I, like most other parents I know, want my little ones to look cute. Why should it be any different when they are eating? I decided to scour fabric vendors for the sweetest, most stylish laminated cottons and create bibs that are just as cute as the outfits they protect.
Once I started using my bibs at restaurants and outings, friends and strangers kept asking me where I got them and once they discovered I made them, they all encouraged me to sell them!
So I decided to give it a shot on Etsy, and it has been a wonderful experience since I opened in April 2012.
After creating my line of baby graybee bibs, I decided to take it further and provide coverage for bigger kids too. My artist daughter, Grace reminded me that stains can happen during making masterpieces too! So I began making full-coverage art smocks using the same fabrics and principles as my full-coverage bibs. My shop now keeps children from 6 months to 4 years old stain-free, so parents can spend less time in the laundry room :)
Thank you for stopping by!
