It all began on June 16, 1952. At least that is the date on the Salt Lake Tribune newspaper that Great Grandma Donna used to trace her first bibbie pattern. You see, Great Grandma Donna was the mother of two young daughters and needed a bib that would really cover and protect their clothes, even safeguarding frilly Sunday dresses. Years later, she continued to make this adorable, functional bibbie for her youngest daughter, Jeanne.

Great Grandma Donna

Great Grandma Donna's second daughter, Lynne, became a mother and continued the bibbie tradition for her own children tracing her pattern onto a November 12, 1984 newspaper. Lynne added an extra layer of fabric making the bibbie twice as absorbent and even more charming. Now a Grandma herself, Lynne improved the bibbies even further by using reversible quilted fabric, once again increasing their usefulness. Today, all of Lynne's grandchildren... boys and girls alike, love wearing their bibbies. Their moms, especially Amber, insist bibbies are worn at every meal and all those other messy occasions.

We are delighted to share our three-generation family tradition with you and know that our bibbies will become your favorite too. Their vintage style and new modern look are adorable on babies, toddlers and even small kids. We know you'll enjoy our bibbies as your babies of all ages dribble, spill, eat, create or just dilly dally.
