Drool Catcher 2.0

I was inspired late last night to test out a Peter Pan collar for my heavy drooler. It's similar to this DIY from Katie of Skunkboy Creatures, but instead of connecting in the front with a button, it velcros together like a bib and sports some enlarged french knots.

It's the same premise as the bib I shared earlier this week but I altered the pattern so that it was much shorter and had the rounded parts at the bottom.

It's still a little large around her neck and maybe thicker on the sides than I'd like for aesthetic purposes but it'll do for the next three months or so.

What do you think? Does it make her look like a clown? Because PeeWee Herman's Big Adventure has put me off clowns for life.

xoxo,
Rachel

That is the cutest thing. I don't think she looks like a clown... more like an Elizabethan! xx

Violet said...

You want the truth? It kind of looks like Shakespeare's collar. Ruby can work anything, though. ;D

She's a Puritan!

Kara said...

That's adorable. Puritan, elizabethan, Peter Panian, whatever - it's CUTE.

I agree with Roses & tea--very Elizabethan! Very cute!

Caitlin said...

Totally cute! And not clownish in any way. :)

Lori Danelle said...

Really cute! And so much better than wearing a bib all day. Wish I would have thought of this when mine were that age!

Beautiful.. & the bib is cute too! ;)

super cute! I don't think it's clown-like. (although I don't think that would be a bad thing... my sister is a clown so I don't think they're all creepy!)

Sadie said...

So cute!! Great idea and I bet it works great!! Good idea... much better than a longer bib all the time!!

Meghan said...

If anything, I think she looks like Sir Francis Drake, and I mean that in the good way.

Gingiber said...

Oh definitely cute. Nothing reminiscent of a clown.

my son had terrible reflux, so i had to keep a thick bib on him at all times to catch the spit-up. ugh. i would have much rather he wore something cute and small like this, so that his cute shirt designs were visible. great idea! <3

JessieB said...

Cute Idea! And genius too! I didn't think of clown until you mentioned it, but I agree with Violet. My first thought was the whole Shakespeare era :)

Hey look! It's an adorable Sir Walter Raleigh!
