    I buy a towel from spotlight and can usually make 8 bibs/towel. Towel usually costs $6-$8. Make sure you wash both the towel and material in the washing machine first

    I use towels too. Better colour range. A lot of people use minky fabric but it's not real easy to sew with.

    If you buy the inexpensive range from kmart, bigW etc they are a good thickness. I like the Essentials range from Pillowtalk when they are on sale, good quality but not too thick and great colours.

    This is where you want to go cheap - cheaper the better - more expensive usually means thicker. If you go anywhere and feel a cheap one next to a more expensive one you should be able to feel that it is thinner.

    That's fine!!! the more the merrier I say! Lol.

    Okay I will keep an eye out for the cheapies!

    Just cut out this bib ... As I thought the first head hole was too small ...

    Should I wash the big panel of material before I cut anymore?

    Thank you so much for all your help! I feel like such an idiot lol..

    Can I ask where you got the fabric?! My niece is obsessed with owls and I'd love to make her a skirt! (If you don't want to tell me that's ok!)
    I just got this one from lincraft.... It was the only one I liked there... They have 50% off fabric at the moment too. So I stocked up on minky fabric for my taggies.

    You should always wash your fabric before cutting so it doesn't shrink after you've sewn it.
