When my amazing sisters threw me a baby shower, we decided to invite guys.  As Juliana put it, "Guys like babies, too."  As a result, we got a very creative gift.  My friend Greg and Juliana's boyfriend Alex actually ventured into a fabric store and bought Stormy some San Francisco 49ers fabric.  I wanted to make something the baby could wear next season.  Enter The Bib:
I used this free tutorial from the Purl Bee, but with the paper pattern from Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing for Baby.  It calls for laminated cotton or oilcloth, but I used the cotton fabric backed with some pale grey flannel.  It was an incredibly fast, satisfying project.  Now that I know how easy it is, I plan to churn out a multitude of them.
