My hubby and I have the privilege of associating with MANY newlyweds in our church.  We all know what newlyweds like to do - YOU know!  So I wanted to make a small gift for each baby, and since they come at a rapid pace, I needed something easy and fast - and not too expensive.  This is what I came up with:

I used my little grandbaby's bib as a pattern and put a piece of chenille on back and flannel on top.  I liked the look of shabbyness around the edges so I just clipped about 1/4" cuts around the bib and washed them a couple of times to get the fray. The closure at the top is velcro with a button sewn on top.  I have done eight so far - only about 42 more to go!

Is your husband a minister? How sweet of you to do that. Now with 8 of your own children - do you have any grandchildren? Sandie
