    Does anyone have a good pattern for one of these?

    Or can recommend a site?

    I need them - I know they look dorky, but a stained shirt is dorkier.

    video to watch for a baby bib but you could enlarge it for an adult and it is reversible.

    Thank you.

    This is one I found. Looks about right for me.

    My Mom has made several for my aunt to wear in her car cuz she is always spilling her coffee on herself. She has also made some for this same aunt to give as prizes on Senior citizen bus tours. They all love them!

    forgot to add: sorry have no pattern, we just winged it. We did however extend the straps straight out a bit and put weights in them to drop over the back of the shoulder to hold the bib in place. No snaps, buttons, ties or Velcro. Easy on and easy off, just toss the ends over your shoulders.

    I like this idea. Wish there was a pattern, sounds perfect.
