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:
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.
