upcycled toddler bibs - with tutorial

Even before turning one Victor expressed his interest in feeding himself which means meal time became even messier but, hey, the boy is independent and this is only to be appreciated. The only thing he still allows me to feed him is yogurt though he would constantly take the spoon out of my hand and try it on his own.
So the more bibs we have the better.
I managed to make two bibs from an old bath towel and here is a little tutorial to show you how I did it:

I added some appliques using the same technique as when patching boy pants.

Here is my little man enjoying his yogurt while being protected by the new bib his mom made for him.
And here he is not so happy anymore as his mom keeps on trying to squeeze in a photo shoot during his snack time. As soon as I put down his yogurt and took the camera he started crying and asking for more yogurt.
In the end he decided to take the matter into his own hands and this is actually the first time that he tried to feed himself yogurt. 
As you can notice the bib didn't quite protect him 100%  so now I use these bibs only when I give him food that isn't so messy and made also a couple of these long sleeve bibs:
