I found out about Nic and Elli through Bundles and Buzz. This company creates a lot of beautiful handmade baby items such as; quilts, security blankets, change mats, baby blankets, bibs and more. I was able to try out one of their bibs (well Capri did, I am pretty good at not getting food all over me now).
When they first told me that they were looking for people to test bibs I agreed but was not really sure about it. You see I am not one of those moms who has a bib on my kid…ever. Why? Because they annoy me and I find they don’t do a lot. You see I either have bibs that have that plastic type backing that melts if you accidently put it in the washer, or bibs that are too small and don’t save the clothes or those really gross bibs that catch the food (makes me want to throw up).
Anyway, the bib from Nic and Elli arrived in the mail and it is HUGE and awesome. The front is a cotton print and the back is a nice terry material. It covers Capri so well and kept her dinner off of her shirt. It also has to snaps to adjust for size and the snaps allow for grownups to take the bib off but not for toddlers (which is how I like it). The snaps are on the side which means that it doesn’t get caught in her hair when snapping it. Also what I loved is that when it got dirty I just tossed it in with the kitchen towels and didn’t have to remember to grab it before the dryer.
Each bib costs $7.00 and if you do laundry like I do you would only need 2-3 bibs. This bib measures approx 15 1/2 x 11 1/2. Nic and Elli are located in British Columbia, Canada (I love using products made in my Country).
Her work is excellent and I have been drooling over her quilts (I love handmade blankets…hint hint to anyone out there that makes blankets of any kind).
So go ahead and check out their Etsy page and buy something. Their stuff would make awesome baby shower gifts.
