Default Adult Bibs

Made a bunch of these for a dear friend who is 85 & has Parkinson's. Cotton front with coordinating soft flannel on the back with reinforced Velcro closure. I wanted them to soft & pretty. She is the envy of the ladies at the assisted living facility.

What a great idea! Did you find a pattern somewhere or make your own?

Heck, I don't have any kind of ailment other than being a sloppy eater so I could definitely use those. Think how much fun you could have with all the different foody fabrics that are out now.

So simple. So useful. So appreciated. I'm getting my new sewing room set up after being in our RV for a year. I might make a few to donate to get started again. What a nice simple project.

I'd also be interested in the pattern ... looks simple, so I should be able to draw one up but a pattern would be so much easier. If no pattern, what are the dimensions.
I'm with feline fanatic, I don't know how I do it but I'm always saving some food for a later snack .... or all my spoons have holes in them and forks are missing tines or that hole in my chin is getting larger.

How pretty! They will be greatly appreciated and very useful.

Just an FYI, when I was a nurse working in a nursing home and an assisted living facility, we preferred to use the terms "cover-ups" or "clothing protectors". We also didn't use the term "Adult Diapers" opting instead to call them "Briefs". A member of the Resident Council who lived in the facility came to us and told us that the residents didn't like the term "Bib" or "Diaper" because they weren't babies. There was a facility wide memo that came out about the terms to be used as a way to protect the residents dignity.
