Three little bibs

September 1, 2008 at 12:38 pm 2 comments

Happy Labor Day!! How nice to have a day off. I won’t get any sewing done today since we’re having some friends over for dinner tonight and there’s lots of cleaning and food-preparing that must be done before they get here.

But I did sew a few bibs this past week for Atomic Holiday Bazaar (have I mentioned that it’s December 14? Have I?).

Bibs are so much fun to make.

The binding can be a real bitch, but I always feel like I’ve accomplished something grand when it comes out smooth and flat.

It’s almost time to restock my ricrac stash.

Funny how that polka-dot Amy Butler fabric seems to go with everything. Although I’d never expect a kiwi-green polka-dot fabric to match just about anything, it really does read as sort of a neutral.

As I mentioned, the bibs are for AHB, but in the meantime, they’re in The Boutique here, here and here.

Off to clean!
