Make a bib from a kitchen towel

I like to make bibs from kitchen towels.  They wash easily and really cover the child to prevent messy stains on nice clothes.  I have made many of these bibs through the years.  Today I decided to make some bibs to take to Kastyn when we go see her on Wednesday.
This is a super short tutorial on making these bibs.
First buy a bar towel or kitchen towel.  Cut the towel like this and zig zag around the cut edges.

Next, fold the towel to make selves and either sew or pin.  I like to sew them.  Then I just crochet around the edges and make ties.  Today I went a little crazy and embellished this bib.  I have never made one so fancy.
Kastyn should look pretty cute while she is getting carrots all over her pretty bib.  I really like the way it turned out.
Then I crochet and embellished a red bib for Kastyn.  Notice the little butterfly on the shoulder.   I made it using #3 crochet thread.  I sewed the butterfly on really good so it doesn't come off.  I made the antenna from the yarn as well.

Those are sooo cute! And since I just got my first grandchild- a sweet girl- Sat- maybe you would consider doing a tutorial? Thanks, Angela
