A sneak peak of a few ready-to-ship bibs..
|Cherries w/ eyelet lace|
A lot of people have asked me about the business name. We refer to my daughter as "Pip" from time to time. While I was trying to think of a business name, a sweet friend of mine threw out the suggestion of Pip Pip Hooray ... and a business was born! I love it!
The reason I decided to begin creating and selling these bibs is because my mother in law made a whole bunch for me when I was pregnant with our daughter, Piper. I fell in love with them immediately - they are the cutest bibs I've ever seen! Not only that, but they are practical - they are crafted from two layers of upcycled denim and embellished with fabric/bandanas, belt loops, watch pockets, and eyelet lace. They fasten with a heavy duty snap - no velcro to get fine baby hair caught in! They fit a wide variety of ages, from about 4 months to 3 years old and up!
Here is my daughter at 2.5 wearing a denim bib with lots of room to spare:

I have used these bibs exclusively for two years and I absolutely LOVE them. I would not sell them if I didn't adore them myself. They are sturdy, offer GREAT coverage, and launder so, so well. They're just like blue jeans, of course they hold up! Every time I whip one out in public and put it on Piper, people go bananas and ask me where I bought them. They wanted them, too. After two years of hearing how badly other people wanted them, I decided to start making them myself! I gave away a few as gifts and my friends went wild for them. Finally, after much deliberation, I asked my mother-in-law if it was okay if I sold them and she encouraged me to do so. And...here I am now! :)
I plan to stock many of these on my Etsy site soon, but for now, I am primarily selling from my Facebook business page. Bibs are $12 each or combine and save, 3/$30 (subsequent bibs after the third are also ten dollars each). For non-local customers, I charge exact shipping from me to you. Shipping prices are quite nominal as I can ship these first class inexpensively, typically between $2-3, depending on the weight of the bib(s).
These are great for anyone with children - they will last through multiple children because these are so durable. They also make fantastic baby shower gifts - the reaction from the mother-to-be and all of the attendees is priceless!
So, why am I blogging about this? To get the word out about Pip Pip Hooray, of course! If I reach 300 fans on my Facebook business page by Friday, July 27th at 11:59pm Central time, I will be giving away TWO bibs (one bib each for two lucky fans). I already gave away one bib once I hit 100 fans ... are you going to be the next winner? Go "like" Pip Pip Hooray on Facebook and if/when I hit 300 fans by next Friday, you may be one of two people who will win! [Shipping to U.S. addresses only, please]
I will be frequently updating the page with new bibs in various fabrics and designs. If you don't see anything you like, please contact me and we can figure something out! I am open to custom designs and ideas! Just let me know. :)
