More of the same... bibs.

A month ago my life changed. We adopted an eight week old puppy. I don't know how one little bundle of fur can take up so much of my time, but that is the reality. Here he is after playing in the snow a couple of days ago... our own little abominable snowman.

I envision a day when I will once again be able to get out my sewing machine and sew for hours, but that time is definitely in the future, because right now my days revolve around this little guy. Fortunately, he takes a nap in the morning and one in the afternoon. That leaves me 1 1/2 hours (per nap) to do as I please. Usually, I "please" to catch up on chores, run errands, etc. Yesterday, however, I decided to do another quick sewing project.

I hope our #18 grandbaby needs bibs, because a bib takes 1 1/2 hours to make from start to finish, so that's what I've been making lately when I need a sewing fix. Here are a couple that I made recently...

The pattern and tutorial for this infant bib are found on Nana Company.  They are the perfect size for a newborn and older. I love the little patch she suggests to put at the bottom of the bib.

 I sometimes embellish the patch with a button or two.

This is short and sweet because my little pookie-wookie, pudding-pie is waking up!

It's a good life!
