bibs





I have a baby shower to go to tomorrow. I had 3 of these bibs already made and stashed away, so I just had to finish making the last one. I love how they turned out and I think they make a nice set. My kids don't want me to give them away. I guess I'd call that success. :)

Those are a)awesome and b)a wonderfully original gift!

They'll be a hit (and when I find a baby shower to crash, I'm going to have to make some!)

Jane said...

They are SO cute! I especially love the addition of the SNACK one.
Tutorial, perhaps?! <3

Jenny said...

those bibs are too stinking cute. You even have one for snacks. Love that.
Wow, if your kids don't want you to give them away, then you know they are adoreable.

So cute, and what a lovely gift!

Jenn said...

Cute, cute. I love the trim fabric. I love how such a simple fabric like that can accent so many different main fabrics and gives projects pop!

Hey fellow quilters, I recently took over blogging for my local quilt shop. Would love for you to stop by and say hey. The shop is new to the blog world, so hoping I can pull in some of my blogging community to kick off our new adventure.

The bibs are so cute! It is also a neat small project for me to learn how to use my stippling attachment. I am new to quilting. My grandson will have holiday bibs! I see your bib tutorial in the right hand column. Thank you!

I love those! That cherry fabric is my favorite - I found some of it on clearance a couple years ago and bought a few yards, then went back and bought the rest of the bolt lol!

Beautiful bibs, and sweet, sweet gift!

Great bibs!! After seeing grandson drooling/teething a couple of weeks ago, I can see one with "drool" on it!!

carol said...

E-gads, there for a minute I thought you might have a new addition to your household. Sure glad it was just a "bit" on the cute bibs! You have no time for more kids......you need to sew, sew, sew!!! After all, what would we all do without you?????

Super cute idea and amazing execution. I really enjoy seeing your work. Nothing beats gingham bias tape. Nothing. It is the sweetest detail on God's green Earth.

Completely adorable and such a wonderful gift. The recipient will be nuts about these! My little guy is fighting the bib these days, but I'm thinking I might have to try my hand at making some anyway... :) Thanks for the inspiration!

Jessica said...

Now that is a perfect baby shower gift---I have a bunch to go to!

Liz said...

Adorable. I love the fruit fabric. As a matter of fact, I used some of the same fabric today.
