The perfect accessory for a future CEO? : ) I whipped up this little “business man” baby bib a few weekends ago when a friend came over for a crafty weekend. I got the idea from this bib pattern on Etsy (which also features an adorable Superman version), and used this bib outline from Purl Soho. I just eyeballed the “suit” pieces on copy paper, cut out corresponding fabric pieces, and sewed it all together. The fabric came from the fat quarter bundle I won in January (yay!), and I used a colorful cotton flannel for the back (pictured below). A quick and easy little baby gift!
My friend and I had a great time sewing together, as neither of us has any other sewing-inclined friends. What a treat to sew together for a few days! We live a few hours apart, so it was really nice to get together and nerd it up with our sewing machines. : ) Since we have a mutual friend who is expecting, baby bibs were a perfect quick project.
My friend brought her serger (to the left in the photo above) – what a treat to take it for a spin! I am still pretty terrified of serging — that knife cuts all of your fabric!! — but hopefully I’ll get the hang of it with a little more practice. Perhaps one day I’ll buy one of my own? : )
Clearly we were having fun! Below are a few photos of my friend’s bib, as well as the business man bib during construction. She made a little scientist in a lab coat with safety goggles and a bubbling test tube (both made out of felt). Adorable! Since we’re both scientists, as is our expecting friend, she thought it would be a great idea. She used the same colorful flannel that I did for the back.
