Nesting Project #3: Bibs

These maybe should have been posted with the last two projects because they are so small and just use the leftover fabric from those projects.  But with any extra fabric I have I intend to pop out some bibs because they are my favorite type of bib and you can never have too many of them.  I am somewhat impared with sewing around curves, though, so I don't make as many of them as I could if it were easier for me.  So silly, I know, but it's really a problem. 

I totally ripped the design of these bibs off some that my friend LeAnn made for me.  The only reason I feel the least bit okay with it is that hers are so much cuter, better-made, and I would buy them from her to avoid having to make them.  This are a couple that she made for Max: 


See what I mean?  Super cute!  And just the right size to handle the big messes, including Max's uber drool while he was teething.  And, they have button closures so Baby can't rip them off and they don't stick to everything in the laundry like with velcro.

Rachel, your bibs turned out great! :D

I'm anxious to check out the pattern you used for the carseat cover. I think I'll be needing one of those.

We always have a bib shortage around here. Especially now that Ethnie has started feeding herself.

Melissa, you wanna know a secret? When you posted about Luke wearing girly bibs, I sat down and tried to make you a few of these. They ended up being fit only for the garbage or our own use (at home, where noone will see that I ripped a hole in one, etc.). It was a small miracle that I got a couple of good ones for my girly. I'm not joking about my inability to sew around curves!
