Messy Eaters and Drooly Teethers

Two of my very best friends are pregnant....one with a baby boy and one with a baby girl, both due to grace us with their presence in late September/early October. Despite the fact that I have two crib-sized quilt tops completed, they have not yet been quilted, thus I threatened to come empty handed to a little impromptu shower we had for them over the weekend together. Who in their right mind comes to a baby shower without a gift?! I wanted to make a little something homemade for the babes in place of my unfinished quilts.

Every messy eater and drooly teether needs a few bibs, right? I used Amy Karol's Simple Bib from her book Bend-the-Rules Sewing: The Essential Guide to a Whole New Way to Sew and here are the goods, ready for an eventual barrage of drool and pureed baby food.

If I invite you over for lobster, will you make ME some bibs?? :) Those are beautiful, Sarah. I'm sure your friends were very appreciative - and that their stylin' babies will be, too, when they get to wear them!

Amy said...

Those are the perfect gift. As the mother of both a messy eater and a drooly teether I can tell you that they will be greatly appreciated!

Alexis said...

Those are great--and yes, babies go through many bibs in a day, so they're a perfect present!

I love the bibs! Really! They are gorgeous (I'm a friend of Melissa's)

Even more excited to see the quilts for these little ones. I'm jealous!

These bibs are so adorable. My daughter has 2 1/2 year old quadruplets -- and an older son who just turned 4. She has gone through TONS of bibs these past few years -- these would have been so cute on them.

I love the fabric you chose for these bibs! They are adorable! Great job!

Barbara said...

Can I commission you to make one for Sanne that is actually long enough to cover her blessed long torso and purtruding belly?!

They are beautiful! Etsy.com is calling your name!

Gorgeous bibs! Love your fabric choices - they will be the most stylish babies around!

Karen said...

ahh! Love them. Did you put a batting or something inside? I couldn't decide when I did mine and ended up not. Now I'm afraid that they will leak through. thoughts?

Sarah said...

Hmm... I didn't add any batting, but that would have been a grand idea. See how little I know about kids?! :) I don't think that the pattern calls for it, but it should have!

Karen said...

Yeah the pattern didn't call for it, but I was trying to think of a way to make it more absorbent. I was thinking about making the back a terry cloth towel next time. Absorbent and still use fun fabrics on the front! what do ya think?
