Messy Babies Gotta Have Bibs – The Great Etsy Bib Giveaway!

  • We all know that bibs are a baby essential. But until you experience a kid sneeze with a mouth full of applesauce, you really have no idea just how essential they are. So why not get some great ones!  You know how I loves me some…so I went looking and found some amazing bibmakers out there on Etsy. It’s my great pleasure to introduce three of them to you now!

    Happy Baby

  • Happy Babee and Beyond made the beautiful bib my baby gal is wearing in the video! Thank you so much Melinda! Melinda’s fabrics are fun and stylish and the minky fabric she uses to back the bibs is just divine! My gal’s is the gorgeous pink, brown and sage Windy Day pattern but you’re going to love all her designs! And for a one-of-a-kind gift for a super stylish mom or mom-to-be, check out her Kokeshi Dolls Minky Bib and Burp Cloth Set!

    Girlie Bird

  • And you must check out the fanciful and sweet personalized bibs made by Girlie Bird Boutique! I love the “John David” bib she sent me as a sample! I think it’s so hard to find cute but stylish boys designs. Jackie totally hit it with this bib with a VW bug on it! How awesome is that! (Have I mentioned my Dad still drives the 1979 VW Camper Van he bought when we were kids?) And how beautiful is this monogramed bibfor girls? If you want a truly personalized gift this holiday season look no further! Jackie at Girlie Bird has something for you! As well as a second, bonus giveaway for the mommy, auntie, granny or friend of a “John David”…read on Update!  Girlie Bird does not currently offer bibs but they have some other adorable personalized items and cute dolls!

    Pearly Gray

  • Jen at Pearly Grey offers a huge selection of fantastic bibs in whimsical and funky retro fabrics! Don’t you love the adorable mushroom and woodland creature pattern that she sent me for review? I love that she offers two sizes as well: Little Baby Bibs for the wee ones and Big Baby Bibs with pockets to catch those clumps of grilled cheese sandwich!

    I love the musically inclined bib from HappyBabee and Beeyond because my husband is the program director at a classical radio station (which is also where we first met!). I love the personalized chenille bibs from GirlieBird Boutique. I’d love the one with the car and with our little boy’s name (we are in the process of adopting our son from Russia!). Pearly Graey’s Big Baby Bibs could be so handy with our little boy. I love all the retro cowboy prints!

    I love that the bibs from Happy Babee and beyond SNAP on the side, I hate the velcro kind. I love that the bibs from Girlie Bird Boutique are personalized and super cute, I might have to start buying shower gifts there! And I love that Pearly Grey bibs are made of fabric and some of them have the catchy thing for all the food mess! Thanks for the fun giveaway!

    I just love the fabric used in these bibs at Happy Babee and beyond. You could use them in any NYC restaurant! Monogramed bibs from Girlie Bird Boutique are just great. Especially when you have a boy with an uncommon name like Wes – no one makes items with Wes. Pearly Grey has beautiful bibs that remind me of those my Mother used in the ’40’s. Love that retro fabric!

    Like Anja, I too love that the bibs from Happy Baby and Beyond snap on the side. You can tell a Mom who knows how it is makes them. I hate having to fight to get a bib off!

    I like that the Girlie Bird bibs are chenille…how often do you see that? Nice and soft on baby’s little neck.

    And the fabrics Pearly Grey uses? Love em’!

    I’ve got a two year old and a 7 month old…so I can never have too many bibs!
    Thanks for the chance to win. Best of luck to all 3 Etsy sellers!

    Great video! Thank you to you and your little model :)
    Happy Babee and Beyond: Really, really like the fabric patterns!! And minky as the backing–how plush!
    Girlie Bird: Who doesn’t like personalized items?! I agree with you–the embroidered VW rocks!
    Pearly Grey: Great retro patterns remind me of going through my grandmother’s stash of old fabrics that she used to sew my Dad’s play clothes with!
    Most of all I like them b/c they are unique–a neat item for my baby that I’m not going to see on every other baby!
    Thanks for holding this giveaway!

    I love the CHOCOLATE MINT Minky Bib on Happy Babee and Beyond…it’s so cute, and yet boyish! The VW bug personalized bib is so adorable, and you’re right, it’s hard to find personalized bibs for boys! But, my favorite bibs are the bigger bibs with pockets! I think they are SO adorable…especially the Just Ducky, Frogs with Cattails, and Little Boy Blue bibs. As we are just beginning the solid foods, bibs are becoming a newfound love of the Light family!

    I love the patterns Happy Babee and Beeyond uses for bibs. Who says babies can’t be stylish? GirlieBirdBoutique uses wonderfully soft-looking fabrics.. I love that chubby corduroy. The PearlyGrey bibs are just plain fun with the retro imagery. Totally cute, every one.

    I love that the HappyBabee bibs attach on the side. Its so much easier to get on and off. I love her sushi bib.

    At GirlieBirdBoutique my favorite thing is that they are personalized. Whats better than that? I love her onesies with the sash. So cute!

    And finally I love that the bibs at PearlyGray are big and cover up everything. We are starting to do finger foods and my daughter can get pretty messy. The paper doll bib is so cute.

    at Happy Babee and Beyond I also like the side snaps!! It’s annoying to have to fight to get behind my baby’s head to undo his bib (especially when he’s asleep!!)

    at Girlie Bird Boutique I like the personalization…cuz I mean…with a son named Nehemiah…how many things are you gonna find for him?!

    the selection at Pearly Grey is adorable! And so very fun!!

    Happy Babee and Beyone — I love the fabrics — especially the cowgirl one! I also like the idea of a matching burp cloth!

    Girlie Bird Boutique — The monogramed bibs are adorable and the ladybug one is so cheerful!!! Chenille is such a soft and comfy fabric!

    Pearly Grey — I love the big shoulders on the big baby bibs — so nice to provide more protection. The retro fabric is fab and the pocket looks handy!

    Thanks for the giveaway! I’d love to win for my little one and my nephew!!!

Chenille is wonderfull! And I love the Pink Paper dolls big big from Pearly Grey! It’s nice for people to make big bibs rather than just small baby bibs!

    My son has just started eating solid foods so those itty bitty bibs that come with those baby outfits just don’t cut it. I’d love to win these three. The Gnomes Big Baby Bib from Pearly Grey is adorable, and big enough to catch globs of rice cereal–very easy to clean too. And the pocket catcher is a bonus!

    I like the chenille bibs from Girlie Bird Boutique too. They look so soft and I’ve found that chenille is very washable and still comes out soft. I like the Handmade Chenille Bib with Embroidered Rocket.

    And the Chocolate Mint Minky bib from HappyBabee is lovely. I could wear minky fabric all the time, and I know my son would love it against him at mealtime.

    Thanks so much for a great giveaway, and i loved your video!

    I love the fabrics and side fasteners on the Happee Baby bibs–side fasteners make a difference if your baby has a lot of hair, like mine does. I love the variety of embroidery styles on the Girlie Bird Boutique bibs–some of the monogram styles are really charming. And the cool fabrics in the Pearly Grey bibs make me whimper. Where do they get their fabric??

    Happy Babee and Beyond has a great collection of bibs. I like the fact that they are pre-washed.
    Pearly Grey bibs are funky and I might use them, even though retro is not my favorite pattern.

    I just wanted to add because I hadn’t mentioned before that the happy baby and beyond bibs are fantastic, not only because they are reversible but because they match the colors of my home, brown and blue, we must have similar tastes! Also the pearly grey bib is nice because it captures a little bit of nostalgia with the retro design and reminds me of things my grandmother used to have laying around her house from my father I think, it’s almost howdy doody-like isn’t it!

    Really great bibs!! Thanks for sharing your etsy love and finds with us. What I love:
    1. happy babee and beyond: As you said, the fabrics are gorgeous. And I love that the bibs are backed with minky fabric. So soft!
    2. girlie bird boutique: Love that the snap is in the back and the matching fabric on the back. You can tell these etsy crafters care about their work when they pay such attention to detail with the BACK of their products. Too cool.
    3. pearly grey: Love the pocket with the big baby bibs.
    Fingers crossed to win! We NEED some bibs.

    I love them so much! I am going to say I love the fabric best of all. Especially since each one is unique!
    Happy Babee’s are cool fun patterns that are just fantastic.
    but I love how soft the Girle Bird bib looks. The VW bug sold it for me, but it looks so tactile and soft too!
    And how can you not adore the vingage Pearly Grey bib? I love vintage prints and the red trim makes it pop!

    I love how they are all unique fabrics and styles but oh so cute!

    I like the personalization of the Girlie Bird Botique. I LOVE to give & get products with name son them – it makes t so special!!
    I like that Pearly Grey has the big baby bibs! It has the flap to catch all of the solid food that gets dropped & dribbled!!

    And I must say that the little “bye” at the end of your video was SO cute!! She is adorable!!

    The first bibs from Happy Baby are so modern and stylish. I would love to give them as a gift. The Girlie Bird Boutique bib just LOOKS so soft that I would imagine it would be great to wipe the messy mouth of baby! But my absolute favorite is the one from Pearly Gray. The retro fabric is such a vibrant and happy print. And if I still had a child using bibs, I would definitely say that the pockets are a bonus. So happy to see my cute goddaughter in the video! Can’t wait to see her in person soon!!!!! Have forwarded your email on to my friends who have babies of their own, babies on the way, or just want to give baby gifts!

    The Happy Babee and Beyond bib is machine washable and it has a snap instead of the Velcro. I absolutely love that you can get personalized bibs at Girlie Bird Boutique. And I love that the bibs at Pearly Grey come in two sizes and awesome fabrics.

    I like how Happy Babee backs their bibs in minkey. The bibs look simple and stylish. The Flower Power bib is one of my favorites.

    I like how Girlie Bird has cute images that can be monogrammed onto the bibs. The ladybug is adorable and the satin rose adds a cute touch!

    I like how Pearly Grey’s bibs have snaps that withstand tugging. The Carnival Bloom style really caught my eye.
