For Some Babies


Everywhere I look, babies are being born. I threw together a few bibs and burp cloth (all backed in chenille) for some new baby girls. I love the femininity of the fabric. Too sweet. Soon I have to work on those boy versions...

  • Mason scored his first goal on Saturday during soccer. Woo-hoo, Mason!
  • We had a couple of barfy boys in the house within the last couple of days. Yuck.
  • Our little town flooded Saturday night/Sunday morning. Main Street was blocked off, as was our main entrance and exit to the town.
  • I succumbed about bought some candy corn for Sawyer's little birthday gathering. I think I ate too much. (But did you know there is "caramel candy corn?")
  • I'm running late this morning. I have to drive Spenser to preschool. But I have dinner in the crockpot.

Lera,

I am still putting my post together for today, but you need to pop over later and check it out. Bibs and burpcloths are what you will find!

Your are lovely. The fabric is so pretty and romantic. I like the idea of backing with chenille. Too cozy!

Beautiful bibs! I found your site through one link that led to another that led to another... you know how that goes? Anyway, I read every post here and at your sewing blog and I have just been so inspired! I totally love how much you create from vintage sheets. Thanks for posting such great ideas.

Love the bibs!! Maybe you could show us how you got those snaps on, because I tried to do the same thing yesterday and could not get them on for the life of me!!!

I love sewing bibs for baby gifts too. Quick and easy project and looks cute too. You could also add some cloth baby shoes as gifts too in addition to the bibs. There are a few free instructions online, if you are interested just let me know.

These are darling.

Hope the water was a mere inconvenience and not the kind of headache it ends up being over here.

And woohooo Mason!!! I played soccer for 12 years and never got a goal. 'Course, I played defense, but whatever. He should be proud!!!

Dinner already? You're rocking and rolling today, girl. xoxo

The bibs are very very cute.

Caramel candy corn??? Now this I need to investigate.

I wish I had dinner in the crock pot too! *sigh*

Lera! These are adorable!! I'm working on making a dress for my neice with this kind of rounded neck. I've got the pattern cut out, but I cannot get it pinned down and tacked under for sewing without it turning into a square. Any tips? I want to do these bibs for my little one! I love them!

The caramel candy corn is yummy! Watch out for the caramel apple candy corn, it's trouble!

Darling bibs. I love the candy corn tote as well. The candies are definitely my downfall.
