Sewing On A Rainy Sunday Afternoon

Today was another rainy Sunday. The kind of dreary afternoons that is just perfect for crafting! I LOVE to listen to all my favorite songs on Pandora radio, drink a hot cup of tea and sew!

So, today's project consisted of making something from my leftover fabric scraps that were left from a burp cloth I made earlier in the week. I love to make the best use of my fabric, this way I can turn one yard of material into two sewing projects. Dave Ramsey would be SO proud of me ;). This is my first attempt at creating a bib without a real pattern ( I drew this pattern just off the top of my head). Here is the creative process.

The bib pattern I drew.

First I iron the material.

Then I use chalk to trace the bib pattern onto the fabric.

Next, I pin out the bib.

Now, I cut the bib.

All ready for me to sew.

Ta Da All Done! I had to try it on our cat Maverick for size. I figured if the bib fits a 14 pound cat it will certainly fit a newborn baby boy! ;)

Maverick doesn't seem too pleased.

I later made these two burp cloths using a few final scrap remnants of fabric.
