Baby on the Brain October 2012

I was writing this post in October, after grandbaby Owen arrived, and finally after a "pregnant" pause I thought I ought to post it!

There are a lot of wonderful tutorials and ideas online for making things for babies.  Pinterest is a great place to gather and save ideas for later, or to a website that provides a tutorial or pattern for an idea. Often you don't even need a pattern you can just "wing it" and it comes out fine.  I made Bapron bibs using the tutorial from Craftiness Is Not An Option's blog. They were fun and easy to make.  I recently purchased a new sewing machine with an embroidery option.  I tried it out, and didn't want the sample to go unused, so I turned it into a bib. And also took some rectangles of fabric used in my baby quilt, added some chenille backing and had a couple easy burp cloths.  It surprised me how quick it is to make these items - and how much you pay for them in the retail store!

Winging It.... you don't really need a pattern for these bibs and burp cloths.
