Adult Bib Tip #9 - Work

Hi Suze,
I use a bib at work in my one person office. I bring a nice terry kitchen towel from home and a soft crocheted cord from acrylic yarn that I connect to two clips. The cording goes around my neck and the clips attach to the towel.

The kind I used because I had some and they aren't bulky, but any clips would work.

After seeing your beautiful ideas for bibs, I am motivated to sew a prettier 'bib' of fabric to clip to for myself and gifts. Although, there are beautiful towels available.

This is a simple clothing protector idea using a large napkin size rectangle of fabric with a image of a red tie appliqued on it. You could make up a dozen of these for a spagetti party in no time.
