A Break from Stamping

I took a break from stamping yesterday to work on a couple other projects, I hope you don't mind my sharing. My mom got me a sewing machine for Christmas a couple years ago and I keep promising I will use it more and learn more about it. For the most part, I have failed at that promise, but lately I've been breaking it out a little bit more. I can't sew much more than a straight line at this point, but I am getting there.

My little man has been drooling like crazy lately (well actually my big man too for that matter, molars perhaps) and I am sure that teeth are on the way. We have a couple really cute bandanna bibs that I got at H&M when Gabe was a baby and while I love the look of them I don't love the patterns. So I thought this was something simple enough to make and I could probably do it and choose my own cute fabric. Off to Pinterest I went and I found this awesome tutorial. And I was right, oh so super simple! I think they turned out pretty good (juts please don't enlarge the photos to check my sewing skills) and I can't wait to go out and get some more fabric to make a couple more!

And of course we need a few snapshots of my handsome man modelling his new bandanna bib. 

While I was at it I made a couple more regular bibs. We are starting to venture into solids in the near future and you can never have enough bibs. For these ones I just used a bib we already had as the pattern and went from there. Again super simple but don't get looking too closely. Let's just say it's a good thing these are only meant for spit up and food.

I also made a few more cloth wipes to add to my collection, but they weren't overly pretty or exciting so I don't have photos of them to share. I used old receiving blankets, cut into 8x8 squares and they were perfectly! Although I think I'll buy some more pretty flannel and make a couple more sets.

Happy Stamping (and other creative projects),

Don't worry I'll be back later this week with a territory I am much more comfortable in, stamping!
