Let me tell you, when you spend the highest dollar on fancy feline food... you want to maximise it's usefulness! Since training the cats to wash the dishes has failed. I've opted to use their food bags to keep the kids clean!
Yes, its 'upcycle your pet food bags into baby bibs' day.
You may recall this project from last year (with cute baby shots of Azriel).
While sewing up some new ones recently I added a few changes.
Here's the run-down:
Cut the food bag (that thick plastic kind/or use vinyl/tablecloths etc) in a long rectangle (10-12").
Cut a bib shape from fleece or cotton (can be traced over an old bib).
Now fold up the bottom of the plastic to create a 'spill pocket' for the bib.
I tucked the fleece edge up into the bottom of the pocket fold and then sewed around the entire edge of the bib.
(This is much quicker and simpler than my previous method of cutting a separate pocket piece).
To attach the bib I used velcro in the past... but it eventually gets worn out.
This time I just added a button and sewed a quick loop with ribbon.
You could also use snaps if you're fancy like that.
Speaking of fancy, here's my two favourite models!
Azriel - my wild child, daughter of a cougar... and handsome happy Hudson.
Since Hudson is starting the real 'man' food soon, it's great to have an easy-to-wipe bib in place for all his slop fest sessions.
(Even tonight I was prepping the sweet potato... baking.blending.freezing in ice cube trays for his big advancement to real food soon!).
Anywho, that's how we keep the kiddos slightly cleaner around here.
