The dining room floor here on Wallace is almost finished, hooray! It’s great news as things should start to return to normal and I can finally fire up the sewing machine again. I’m reliably informed by the biggest lad that I’ll be sewing some Winter dinosaur pyjamas! I’ve got other ideas.
One of my latest projects was to make some baby bibs for a friend who recently had her second daughter. I made little Alice two baby bibs and one for our teething, dribble monster youngest lad. I use this very simple pattern. This time I used towelling to back the bib rather than minkee. The towelling was easier to sew but the minkee is so lovely and soft that I think I’ll stick with it for future baby bibs.
It’s lovely doing sewing for new babies, especially little girls. I think I have used up all of this gorgeous floral fabric now, such a shame! A bonus of making a baby bib for our little guy is that I have a willing model. These bibs are reasonably big, which is great for messy baby eating and teething.
Baby bibs are a great gift for a new baby, we seem to need an endless supply. They are easy and inexpensive to make and gives your gift a personal touch. Baby bibs can obviously be re-used when new siblings come along but they can get a bit gross. While they aren’t an exciting gift, they are practical and there is something nice about a fresh bib for a new baby! Alice and her family live in Queensland. Another great thing about these bibs is that they are very light to post. Fingers crossed little Alice and her very busy Mummy like the new baby bibs!
