Sure, bibs are generally for babies, but I’ll be honest and say that I’m kinda sick of ruining my favorite t-shirts and hoodies by spilling food on them all the time. I don’t mean to be a sloppy eater, I just kind of am sometimes, which is why these adult bibs that look like real shirts are so appealing to me (and I’m sure to many other people as well).
- These aren’t just for sloppy eaters, of course. All jokes aside, these adult bibs can be used by people with disabilities or the elderly to help preserve their dignity while they enjoy their meals. Etsy seller FabricGreetings has shared photos of people wearing them on their product listing and they actually look really sharp and must make the wearer feel more confident/less embarrassed than when wearing traditional bibs. In fact, the seller even describes them as “dignity bibs.”
- Sadly, these don’t come pre-made. Before you hop onto the FabricGreetings shop and grab your own dignity bib, it should be noted that what you’re actually buying is the pattern to make this at home yourself. That means you’ll need to have a sewing machine and know your way around clothing creation. If you do, you’re in luck!
- That being said, they’re incredibly easy to make. Reviews from verified buyers reveal that these adult bibs are pretty simple and straightforward to make if you have a sewing machine. Even a basic knowledge of sewing here will get you there, which is pretty cool.
- Having an instantly downloadable pattern comes in handy. It means you can choose your own fabric that you know the recipient will like, not to mention you can make as many of them as you would like because you have the blueprint. Whether you’re creating them for gifts or making them for a loved one who needs them, you’ll be glad you purchased them. You can get your pattern HERE.
