    I made a bunch of baby bibs for a guild charity. I bought the wash clothes at BigLots for about $.80 a piece, so all together, with the velcro fasteners, they are about $1.25 to make. I am seriously thinking about making a bunch of these to sell at a craft bazaar this Christmas. Do you think $5.00 a piece is too much? They take about 20-25 minutes to make each one.

    I barely got these on the couch to take a picture before our cat had to come check them out!

    Those are really cute. They would probably see well at a bazaar. You could make seasonal ones. Applique a little pumpkin, tree, santa etc. Maybe a 1 for a first birthday. I'm sure the possibilities are endless. Good luck.

    sounds like a good price to me, you can always lower a price but you can't put it up. maybe $5.50 and 2 for $10.00
    love the cat

    I will have to find some other projects to add to this. Last Christmas, my son bought me a pincushion that looked like a cupcake. He spent $5.00 on it. I am sure I could make it for a lot less. I might do some of those too. I also have some towel aprons I've made to go over the handle of the kitchen stove, so those would sell too. I guess what I don't sell could become Christmas gifts for my friends and family. Any other good bazaar ideas?

    I made several similar to your baby bibs except with hand towels for adult bibs. I had baby bibs left at the end of the show but sold every last adult bib. Just a thought.

    Hmmm... that is an idea. I should make some for my own children (5 and 8) for when they are wearing light colored clothes and eating pizza!

    Last night (I think) I saw a post on criss cross coasters. Those would make a good bazaar item and could probably use up a lot of scraps.

    I really like these bibs, do you have a pattern?
