Burp Cloths and Bibs Bonanza

Duration: any

Age: parent

Skill for Bub: Just for fun, Making memories


Create the perfect baby shower gift by customising bibs and burp cloths.

Make your child’s bibs and burp cloths the envy of the stroller set by adding all kinds of cool and creative trimmings.

What You’ll Need:

  • A pack of plain white cloth nappies
  • A pack of plain bibs
  • An assortment of ribbons and trimmings (with tassled pom-poms)
  • Iron-on or sew-on patches (footballs, soccerballs, cartoon characters, hearts, toy boats, ducks or letters).
  • Sewing kit or liquid stitch (available at most craft stores)

Add some pizzazz to infant accessories by sewing brightly-colored ribbons, or tassled trims down the seams of the burp clothes, or across the front of the bibs. Transform baby’s bibs into ones worth “oohing” over by attaching two small ribbons to the front and tying them in a bow, ironing or sewing on fun patch designs or the first initial of his or her name.

Gift Smarts: Got friends who’re also pregnant? These bibs and cloths make super (and so in-demand!) baby shower presents for other mums-to-be.
