Clothes, hats & bibs

Here at Purple Lane we love practical clothes – dribble bibs for teething little ones, hats for winter and summer, dresses, trousers, shorts and dungarees that can be made roomy enough for a cloth nappy.

Bibs

bibs

My youngest son’s dribbling skills used to rival a footballer’s, so I needed to come up with a dribble bib with ultimate absorbency – and this super absorbent style of bib was born! Patterned cotton on the front, fleece back (this is a “stay-dry” fabric to wick moisture back into the bib), and a layer of terry or smooth cotton inside for ultimate absorbency. They fasten with a snap and adjust to three different neck sizes.

  • Standard fabrics – £4.50 for in stock fabrics
  • Wrap scrap – £5.50-10 (price depends on the value of the scrap)

Hats

  • Winter hats with ear flaps – these snuggly hats look cute as well as being very practical, with their ear flaps and sheepy fleece lining, they keep little heads, necks and ears toasty in cold weather. The chin strap with adjustable Velcro fastening helps to keep the hat on, or it can be made without the strap. PUL is a waterproof fabric and if used as the outer layer it makes the hat rain proof. Polar fleece lining is also available for 50p less per size, and other faux fur linings can also be ordered on request.

  • Summer bucket hats – these fun hats look cute as well as being very practical, with their wide brim and cotton lining, they keep little heads cool and shaded from the sun. The chin strap with adjustable Velcro fastening helps to keep the hat on, or it can be made without the strap. PUL is a waterproof fabric and if used as the outer layer it makes the hat rain proof – because you never can tell what the weather will do in British summer time!
