My friend announced that she is expecting a baby girl, and I immediately knew I wanted to sew her something using really wacky fabrics from my stash. I think the fabric choice is perfect, don’t you?
I followed a nice tutorial for the bibs which can be found here: Chickpea infant bib pattern. They were fairly easy to sew, even with the curved edges. I backed the bibs with some cream colored terry cloth fabric and stitched on snaps by hand. I didn’t follow a tutorial for the burp cloths. I simply cut rectangles of the print fabric and cream colored flannel, stitched the right sides together, then turned them right side out and top stitched around the edge. They turned out to be approx 19″ x 11.5″.
My friend is also a knitter, so I made her a Two Kates knitting bag, again with some awesome fabric. I say, if you’re going to sew, make it pop. (Sock yarn not included, just a prop).
Next up, I’m thinking about sewing the cover skirt from Brett Bara’s new book Sewing in a Straight Line. Perhaps I’ll use some of my light green woodgrain fabric. Best. Fabric. Ever. I even have the perfect buttons, too.
