Snips and snails and puppy dog tails!

Baby boys are so wonderful!  Baby girls are very amazing too ;o)  I have three boys and two grandsons so I always look forward to sewing for boys.  This past year  a friend of mine had a sweet baby boy and I have been so late in making a gift for her new bundle of joy.  Last weekend I dug out the fabrics I loved the most from when Adam was a baby and I made some fun bibs for this special little guy.


The pattern is my free Best Bib on the Block and the fabrics are Heather Ross, every child should have fish, Michael Miller, Wild Blue Yonder ( MY FAVORITE boy print EVER), Moda Malibu Monkeys, a Japanese planes print ( the in house engineer was a pilot and I was in Naval Aviation, so I kinda have a thing for planes) and Dear Stella Confetti dots that go with everything under the sun.

Dot minky backed for extra softness

I had fun with my Bernina decorative stitches again.  Only because fish should have bubbles!


I am thrilled that I have these completed and I hope mama and baby love them!

Those are super sweet bibs. I wish somebody (not me) had a baby I could make things for.

These are so cute, Kim! I love the decorative stitching! My best friend's daughter is having a baby soon. I might have to try these out.

what nice bibs and so useful but are they far too nice to use, I would be tempted to keep them, well at least one would not be used to hand down in years to come to the baby`s baby

Hi, Kim!

I agree that baby boys are wonderful! I have two sons myself, but they are grown up men at 19 and 21 years. But when they were babies, I made a lot of their clothes - and I have kept all of them in a little "treasure - box", maybe one day they could be in use again :) I think that your bibs are just beautiful, because of both the pattern itself and the colorful fabrics. Thank you for sharing!

Best wishes from Norway :)

These bibs are super sweet, I wish we still had a baby in the family to sew for, mind you my attempt wouldn't be anywhere near as professional looking as yours.

These bibs are really perfect for those wonderful baby boys. They are such a very great gift to have. There's nothing more I can say about these bibs you have made. Good job!
