My niece is expecting her first baby soon, and I just got the invitation to a baby shower in the mail. I’ve taken care of a lot of babies in my time, and I have a handy bib pattern I always use. I like bibs with a velcro closure so that you can secure the bib to the baby whilst said baby is trying to either escape or pull off your earrings. I did recently get a new pattern from McCalls to try out:
The upholstery brothers, who own a business here in town and have from time to time given me their old fabric samples so that they don’t have to pay for dump fees, provided the fabrics for the bibs. Here’s a picture of the bright decorator fabrics that will soon be bibs. The one with the alligator eyes might be a little freaky, but I’ll see if the mom likes it.
These will be my first projects of the new year. My only resolution for this, hopefully better and luckier, new year is to become proficient on the serger. A certain relative with some white knit shirts that need shortening has been waiting anxiously for this to happen.
