A Baby Sewing Story

Bib Bonanza

I had all these big plans to sew lots of baby stuff while I was pregnant. I put it off for awhile because I wanted to get as many Christmas gift quilts made before I got started. By the time I got around to baby sewing I was pretty miserable and the thought of sewing often made me want to cry.

In the end, I really didn’t sew that much for the new baby. I did however, kinda go bib crazy.

These were so much fun to make!! They are not all for Philippa, however. Only seven are hers. Two girl bibs and two boy bibs went to two co-workers that were also expecting and extra boy bib went into my gift closet for the next time I need a shower gift. (I have another co-worker expecting in March. I work in a very large school!) I did consider keeping my extra boy bib for Philippa, because really, doesn’t everyone love bugs? Even girls?

I wouldn’t have a problem with my daughter wearing this! However, I figured we had enough bibs and it’s nice to have a wee bit of a head start on some gifts!  Here is the other boy bib I made. (Would totally use it for a girl also.)

These next two are the ones I gave to a friend having a daughter. Philippa has a bib just like them as well.
