pinky patchy.



I made a new bib! This one was a gift for a little sweetheart in California. I made it entirely from scraps from other projects, which was so satisfying!

I stamped a piece of twill tape to make a patch.




The best part of making and gifting this bib was that it was hand delivered to sunny Southern California. That's where I've been the past week...It's lovely to be so near the ocean. I had a great time but my mind was spinning and I couldn't stop craving the hum of the sewing machine. I took a little baby quilt with me on plane so I would have something to bind during the flight. As soon as I get around to washing it I will share it with you. Glad to be home!

Now that I'm doing bits and pieces of patching, I have SUCH respect for quilted projects! These bibs are gorgeous.

I think I've finally given up my hatred of pink! I LOVE this bib. You did a great job with combining patterns, and the twill tape is the perfect finishing touch.

Where did you buy your twill tape? I had a hard time finding any that wasn't polyester the last time I tried.

A lovely bib.
It will be a shame to get it all smudged with milk and mashed banana!!

What a sweet gift! I love the hand stamped patch. I'm so jealous you were in southern Cali - the beach, the ocean. Welcome back!
