This bib is functional as well as a keepsake. I have had people put them in shadowbox frames and displayed them. It is all embroidered. The front and back fabrics are very soft satiny fabric that has been pre-washed with free and clear detergent. It's all ready to wear. I put a white satin ribbon on it to tie. Everything can be customized. Just let me know the baby's name, and the Christening/Baptism date if you would like that on it, and the color of the embroidery on the front of the bib and it will be on it's way to you in no time at all.
