This post was going to be about bibs, but I can't post without mentioning that it's Melissa's birthday today. Here's a photo of my seven-year-old.
I love her more all the time and pray that she'll grow into a beautiful woman who loves her Lord. Though I hope she doesn't grow too fast!
Anyone who knows me in real life (not sure how many of you read our blog - hey why don't you comment and say hi!) knows that I like to make and give bibs. They are a small but rewarding sewing project and so useful to the recipient. I know my bibs are used alot. I've just made a bunch to give and also for Zachary who is starting to eat (very messily.)
Raw-edge applique using a piece of the backing fabric.
Don't you just love these cute prints? The marco polo (blue) print is one of my favourites, but Benjamin loves the machines.
I made a few with this cotton waffle fabric. I don't like it as much as the thick cotton terry (is the what you call towel fabric?)
This one is for Zachary.
For a sweet newborn in our church.
And just for fun, some photos of some I've made in the past.
This one is made with a thrifted towel. It's one of my favourites.
