Pattern Description:

Zombies and babies have one thing in common - they are very messy eaters! Whether the cause of your personal laundry apocalypse is pablum or brains, a good bib can make all the difference. And this one has a lot of advantages. 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. It fits on over baby's head, so it's hard for wee ones to take off by themselves - even the crawling dead! And if your ravenous little monster is still hungry after their meal, the bib even has a finger for them to suck...or gnaw on, depending on their preference, of course.

(In lieu of actual brains, try blobs of tomato sauce for that lovely gory look!)

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.
