One of the projects I'm currently working on is a set of bibs/bandana bibs to help a friend out whose child has complex health needs. There are not so many options out there at a price that is befitting of these tight financial times so via a mutual friend I have been trying to come up with a design that fits the child but also has the right level of absorbency/water repel and is also beautiful to look at - it's still important to look nice right!
I think I've come up with a good design/fabric combo for the bandana with a pretty cotton on the front and a waterproof backing that's a waterproof polyester (not plastic but like a fabric shower curtain). I have seen them made with PEVA and EVA but really struggling to get hold of that here in the UK so will have to test this and see how we do! Fingers crossed.
