As soon as I heard the news that baby Grace had arrived, I dug out some cute pink fabrics, along with some lovely soft cream towelling I'd bought with baby gifts in mind.
By the time I actually sat down to sew, all of my original plans (of which there had been many) went out the window. Before I knew it I was making some bibs! Something I've wanted to try for a while, but had no one to make them for. I decided to personalised them with the initial 'G' and keep them pretty simple.
My favourite bit has to be the poppers! I got a little tool for this and it's the first time I've used it. I think they really add a professional touch to the bibs.
After a bit more playing around I ended up with some cute little dangly toys. They are fabric on one side, towelling on the other, a few ribbons as tags and a little added something for some crinkliness inside!
Another thing that I ended up making - purely because I had the towelling fabric, and the idea just came to me was a gorgeous Tilda bunny rabbit. The pattern is from the 'Crafting Springtime Gifts' book and was so easy and quick to make.
Isn't she adorable?! (I've since bought some light brown towelling fabric so I can make myself a slightly more grown up version!)
There was 1 more part to Grace's gift but I'll show you that in my next post :)
