The turtle, crab and plain round bibs are very easy to make. The eyes on the turtle and crab are buttons and the legs are ribbons so you don’t have to do any hand embroidery. However, if you prefer, you can embroider the eyes in place of the buttons. Each bib measures 6 1/2” tall (from top of bib to bottom) x 7” wide (that doesn’t include the ribbon legs). The bibs can be made for girls and boys. They are great for babies and toddlers. The bibs will wash and wear well.
