Baby Craftiness

After a nice break I'm back at work! And work's been busy so I hence the radio silence last week. In the last few days of maternity leave and I'm trying to catch up on some craft projects. I thought I'd get a lot more little projects done, but the reality of having a little baby to run around after has me with very little free time to do much of anything else. Ah, well. What I did manage was to make a few extra little dribble bibs and feeding bibs. The dribble bibs I used a pattern from Made By Toya. They turned out ace. I used up a few fat quarter pieces of fabric up, a nice piece of Liberty's fabric (white with ships) so it was good to actually use up fabric instead of just hoarding it.
Next up, some much needed feeding bibs. We're on solids now; things are a little bit messy. These I made a pattern based on a bib I had that I liked.
Last but not least, harem pants! I had an old tee I could never bring myself to throw away and found it while sifting through my fabric stash. Featuring a jungle scene with tigers, leopards, and panthers. Perfect for the boy! Again, pattern via Made by Toya. The tee was just big enough for the pattern, thought the pants are a bit bigger than I expected. But he's only 7 months, so he can grown into them. And that's it for crafting for a while probably.

Oh these are ace! Someone followed your link to my blog and I'm so glad that it led me to your post. It's magic seeing something made from a self-drafted pattern, and your material choices make me very envious!

These bibs are so wonderful! The materials that you have used are so nice. Great Job!
