In Stitches

RECENTLy:

Dylan & Renee had a baby boy (Callum Keith Andrews) last Sunday so off to the sewing room I went..

Made them a little boy bib and Sensory Square ...

also

Late last week on etsy I saw this Uber cute sheep so I decided I would try to have a go at making one...
This is Shabbit --Not exactly like the pic but cute in an ugly reproduced way... ended up turning into a Rabbit because Kyle thought it looked more like a Rabbit ..
complete with fluffy tail and all, so now it is a cross between a sheep and a rabbit ( hence the Shabbit )
Still trying to find some nice felt scraps so I can finish off the eyes on my Giddy Up horse from Melly & Me but I'm so sick of waiting to blog about it I thought I would do it now..


Second last - I have the art of bib making down to 15 mins a bib. So I've been doing some MASS producing. (11 bibs in total) Surely one needs copious amounts of bibs?

I've been doing them in two sizes so that when he gets a bit bigger the bibs don't end up being too short.

and FINAlly (yes Collette this is the last thing, I know I'm boring you)

woke up this morning and thought I might try to make a pyramid (wasn't too hard) The exciting thing about this is that I filled it with half polyfil and half bean bag balls so it has a really different feel to it. Try it some time.. this has to be my favourite little boy toy so far :)

the end.

you have really out done yourself with the bib making down to just 15 minutes.....You go girl..
Maybe there is a market out there for the bibs ??? have you tried checking out the little specialty shops???? you could make yourself a bit of pocket money!!!! ask at the shop where you buy your fabric????
