My grandsons go through so many cloth bibs, I want to make them some that can be just wiped off easily and reused.

Is flannel backed vinyl (the kind for tablecloths) safe for children? I've read about PVC in vinyl and that it is toxic when degraded. But I'm hoping the newer vinyls are safe. ???

I just posted this in another thread...
You can use PUL that is used to make cloth diapers
I have made some bibs from this as well as diapers/covers
