Molino Homemakers Create Bibs For Rehab Patients

July 31, 2011

The Molino Homemakers recently made adult-size bibs for rehabilitation patients at West Florida Rehabilitation Institute.

Club President Nancy Holland set up a station where members cut out terrycloth and plastic material from a paper bag pattern. At another station, the plastic and terrycloth pieces were pinned then sewn together. Other members trimmed and turned the bibs then the bottoms were hand stitched closed.

Holland delivered the completed bibs to patients who undergo rehabilitation from strokes and other illnesses or surgeries. The patients are able to take their bib home with them once they leave rehab.

The Molino Homemakers meet on the first Wednesday of each month (except July) at 10 a.m. at Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Molino. The next meeting will be August 3. Visitors are welcome; dues are $5 per year.

    Would love to have pattern for adult bib . I want to make them and bring them to our local Vets Home.
    Thank You

    It would be much appreciated if you would pass on the pattern for the bib and the paper bag. I work in aged care and the bibs that are commercially supplied have no absorbency in them. They are made from 100% polyester and I would love to make some lovely ones that are more appropriate especially for the stroke victims that need to wear them all day due to no swallowing reflexes. Thanking you.

    Our son was recently injured in a bicycle accident. In the past he has ridden in charity events in our state of Kentucky. This is a life changing event for him and his family at age 56. Presently, he is at Cardinal Hill, Versailles Road, Ky. for rehab.

    I am interested in the Paper Bag Pattern which I can share with our Scott County Extension Service. This sounds like a good community service project for homemakers in KY.
