pay no attention to the crooked lines
Even though I vowed to never sew again after nearly being defeated by my mother's Christmas gift (you didn't know that...I just told you), I needed a creative break today, and so I made this bib.
Because Avery is getting good at eating real food.
Because I got this cute idea from one of the bibs that Trav's grandma made and we got to use during our visit.
And because I needed a project I could complete during my darling girl's nap. Quick projects are the best-- all the gratification, less of the work. I told you...I am being more careful with my time this year.
Come back tomorrow and I'll show you how I did it. (It's reversible, in case you need more of a sell.)
I wish I had a photo of the apron I made my mom for Christmas. I was too mad at it to take its picture. I know...how could an apron be that hard to sew? Well it was a reproduction pattern of a 1920's apron that had all kinds of things going on-- curvy borders, lots of basting and stay-stitching. The works. Not to mention very unclear directions. It turned out cute though.
See you tomorrow.
