A couple of weeks back I was sitting in the nursery, looking around, when I realised that my bib stash was looking pretty poor indeed:
So there was only one thing to do - Make some more!
As the bibs in my stash were primarily newborn size, I drafted up a pattern for a bigger bib. Once our baby is here, I plan on putting some additional snaps onto the neck of all of the bibs so that they can be multi-sized. Once I have the snap placement correct, I will post the pattern for all of you lovely readers!
Since I am now on maternity leave (and therefore on a reduced income) I decided that I would just use scraps of fabric out of my stash rather than buy new fabric. Imaging my surprise when I found I also had enough fabric left over to make some matching burp cloths as well!
In total I made 15 new bibs and 6 burp cloths, so my stash looks a little more complete now:
Here are some close up pictures of the bibs with the coordinating burp cloths, all washed and ready for use (probably could have ironed them a bit better though!).
Of course there are some with owls:
A cute little unisex spot that has a coordinating stripe to go with it:
A zoo theme:
And some spotty ones as well:
All bibs and burp cloths are backed with a microfleece which I have unfortunately now run out of. Spotlight assure me they will be getting more in sometime soon but because it is a 'winter fabric' they don't stock it all year around - silly really!
