Adult Bib Tip #2 - Choosing Colors
Choose dark colors for bibs that you wish to use often so that the stains do not show as much after laundering.
For special occasions choose any color you wish to match the season or the outfit, knowing that staining may be a problem, if the bib is intended for regular use.

A Longer Adult Bib might be necessay in some situations. My patterns can be lengthened by adding extra copies of the middle sheets.

I wanted to thank you so much for your website of bibs. It came in so handy for me a resident at the Retirement Home that my Mother lives at wanted me to make her a bib. So I searched and found your website. I also embroidered her name on the bib. Emma was one happy lady when I took it to her at mealtime.
