Monster Mess Eaters...

Mess Eating Monsters...Monster Mess...Mess Monster...Cool Monster Bib Thingies...

Okay, I'm not great at the whole naming thing. But my new monster bibs are done! I got my snap press yesterday and set right to work finishing them as I watched The Wire. (Any other Wire fans out there who want to smack Jimmy upside the head?)












They are made of 3 layers: a top layer of cotton print, a soft and thirsty terry backing, and a layer of natural cotton batting in the middle for extra juicy munchers. The bottom lip is a pocket to catch all of the food that invariably misses the mouth (it's a fairly small target, no?). It has sturdy snaps that undo when you are ready to empty it but are strong enough to keep little hands from undoing the pocket mid-meal. When you snap down the pocket you will find the monsters little red terry heart. The eyes and teeth are also terry. There is a snap closure at the neck.

Most of this first batch are going to be sold as seconds because of wonky stitching at the neck closure, so look out for them on the Etsy and/or Hyena Cart shops soon. I am hoping to stock a nice sized batch for my guest spot in K&F Shops monster stocking next month as well.

And yes, I want to smack Jimmy too. He's gone mad... It'll be interesting to see where this will all lead!
