OK – I know that sewing bibs is not REALLY an artistic endeavor – but who cares, right?! Sometimes a little basic sewing is just what is needed.
We were in Berry, NSW last week (see Mr. W’s blog for deets) and so I had the chance to stop at Sew and Tell (they don’t appear to have a web site right now) – a delightful little shop that never disappoints me. They have everything a crafter, knitter, quilter, needlepointer, embroiderer or felter could imagine and somehow, they always keep current with what’s new. They also have a great little home decoration/gift area in the back so even the non-crafty people have something to buy.
I found this fun little girl bib pattern from Vanilla House called Diva Bibs. Well, since we have finally had our first girl child of this generation, the pattern had to come home with me. Friday I spent the day making bibs. Yeah….bibs as in plural. Why make one when you can make five? :o) There is a shower in May for this new girl child (Ruby Ellyn is her name) and so part of the gift will be these 5 bibs…..or maybe more……a girl can never have too many fancy bibs, can she?
Oh, and I just visited the Vanilla House site and they have the cutest BOY bibs patterns too. Our boys are all too big for bibs but I’ll have to keep that in mind for any future male rug rats.
