R informed me yesterday that it was one of her preschool teachers last day tomorrow, because she was leaving to have her baby. Her teachers are so sweet and R really loves them, so we decided to put together a small gift bag for her.
We got a vibrating teether (cool!), a baby bath piggy-duck that tests the temperature, some wrist rattles and a couple hooded towels. We also wanted to get bibs but they were all so yucky and boring; I told R I would whip up a couple from my scraps when I got home. And...ta da:
The (free!) pattern was found on this cool blog called Nested. The instructions are very good and the bibs are sure cute when done. Also, fast to make - each one only took about 15 minutes. The contrast portion on the bottom is a pocket to catch spills. They are small, though, definitely only for tiny, cute newborns.
I will definitely be making more of these in future.
The blue and green one is from left-over fabric from 2 different quilts, and the brown and ice-blue one is made from cotton from a summer dress and a tote I made a couple weeks ago.
Also, in other sewing news, the jacket that I started for the summer wedding is done except for buttons and button holes. Somehow the crazy-looking bust fitting adjustment that I did actually worked. Huh.
I hope to get the buttons done tomorrow and then I will post photos of that too, as well as a pattern review on my account over at Pattern Review.
