I have a friend who is on bed rest expecting a sweet baby girl any time now so it was definitely time to sew up some girlie-girl baby stuff.
|First up was this super easy baby girl bib! |
Don't cha just love the chunky rick-rack!
I got it in a grab bag at an upholstery store.
|The pattern needed a bit of straightening where the 2 pieces|
come together. Probably because of differences in printers. No biggie!
After reading her directions, I found I did a few things differently.
- I used a heavy weight fabric for the top piece so I didn't use any interfacing as she suggested.
- I cut the 2 blocks out first and then sewed them together because I was trying to squeeze them out of some scraps.
- I did use lots of pins when I was sewing the two sides together - as she suggests. Minky can have a mind of its own and tends to move around as you sew so taking charge and pinning are a must.
I just realized that I didn't take any pictures of the back which is the softest minky fabric in baby pink. Got my girlie fix with this one for sure!
|The best part? It took about 20 minutes start to finish!|

Hoping everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day Weekend and got to do a little something that makes your heart sing!
