My Mama Leah has always kept dishcloths in the car to use as lap napkins
("lapkins"). While I was working in outside sales, I spent all day
(including most lunches) in my little Honda Civic. In order to keep my
suits clean, I made some modifications to the lapkin and created the
Neck-Kin. (I never said I was good at Marketing...). I just made a few
more this winter, so I thought I'd share the technique:
The Neck-Kin is just a dishcloth turned longways with a casing sewn
on one end to hold a ribbon tie. Once you have made your casing and
inserted your ribbon, you can tie the Neck-Kin around your neck to
protect your clothes while eating in the car. It is sort of a family
joke now, but I have 5 in my van and they do get used!
I recommend a lighter-weight dishcloth so it doesn't bunch too much when gathered at the neck.
|Fold over one end to make a casing. Make sure it is wide enough for your ribbon.|
|Stitch along edge to form casing|
|Use a safety pin to insert ribbon into casing|

Haha! Love the burger bib!
Ha Ha! Did you eat the whole pizza? I am totally pinning this, so you can get the recognition you deserve. :)
Erin - Yes, eventually ;) One does not throw out Mellow Mushroom pizza!! It was a tough week of R&D (burgers, pizza...) but I make these sacrifices for my dear readers - all 3 of you ;)
