Pattern Description:

All budding little geniuses should grow up being familiar with this deliciously geeky variation of the classic rock-paper-scissors hand game. Even if your little one prefers to chew plastic letters instead of contemplating algebraic topology, this game will definitely come in handy as a decision-making tool when Junior starts begging for another cookie. And the bib itself will satisfy your inner clean freak. It's reversible, so you can flip it for the next feeding if the first side gets messy. It's double-thick, so it's extra-absorbent. And it fits on over baby's head, so it's hard for wee ones to take off by themselves!

This pattern is available individually or as part of the eBook "Flip for the Next Feed", which features this pattern plus four others for reversible bibs.
