I got to go to a baby shower last night...love babies...loves showers...love baby showers. I really wanted to make the presents...and finally after a sewing brain cramp, I came up with t-shirt versions of my Vinyl Bibs (I also used velcro instead of snaps).
I really LOVE how these turned out and I think there is more t-shirt bib makin' in my future. So all of you who might be inviting me to a shower...sorry to spoil the surprise.
The green one I simply cut straight from the tee itself and then backed it with coordinating flannel.
The striped one...ehem, my favorite...I made strips from flannel and from a t-shirt (orange and gray striped) of different widths. Then I sewed them together. After they were all sewn together, I cut the bib out of that and then backed it with a coordinating flannel.
I decided that two bibs wasn't going to cut it, so I added one of my handmade ties.
The tie was a hit...
I mean really...adorable. Can you already picture it on a extra tiny little man?
It was nice to see my sewing machine these last couple of days. I also sewed another present for a little girl...will show it off on Monday...I am pretty proud of it!
My machine will officially go into hiding on the 21st...parting will be such sweet sorrow....then it will be packed for quite a bit while we get settled into our new home. Let's see what I can bust out before then.
Have a delightful weekend!
