    No problem will do :thumbup:

    I have just ordered some fleece,towelling and cotton to try and make some and see how they look, I may try with some scrap fabric first though and will let you know how it goes, it doesn't look that hard does it. :wacko:

    No it doesnt look toooo hard. Maybe a bit fiddly but once in the hang of it I rekon it'd be pretty simple. Think its a good idea to practise with scrap as dont wana waste nice fabric. I've seen some gooorgeous minky fabric on ebay and am very tempted to get it... BUT Im guna hold off for a while... If you manage to get one made be sure to put pics up :happydance:

    wow Laura...looks brill!!

    Now if you could make ones like the bippistuff ones I would put in a nice order!

    They have a front layer of like t-shirt material and back layer of fleece, I find the tshirt material soaks up the dribble better than the others Ive tried, it just rolls off the skibz ones:dohh:

    well done, looking good!

    they're fab, did you do it on a machine?
    i was thinking getting some terry towelling or flannels (cheaper thin ones) some material and a couple of press studs.

    i've not got a machine so i'll have to and stitch mine, think it might be a trial and error thing lol

    Thanks ladies, Its really easy when you have a real bandana to work from. All I did was get one of mine (yes I wear them :blush: ) and wrapped it around her neck at the length I would want the bib, I then curved the top as my bandana went over her face (straight top)

    I have ordered a load of fabric (don't tell DH) so will see what we can whip up,

    I did do it on the machine but it was all done with a straight stitch so should be ok to do by hand good luck :thumbup:

    PlumFairy: I do not know the make on the popper thingy its not on it but my MIL is coming to mine on Wednesday and I will ask her for you :flower:
