I've done a couple more baby bibs, one for my as-yet-unborn-DD (come on September...) and one for my friend's new baby boy.  Well, he's actually 7 weeks old now, but I'm a little slow to get around to it... 

Here's a shot of the two bibs...



Ok, first here's the detail of the one for the baby boy.  Yep, his name is Campbell (cutest name EVER, and boy is he adorable!).  I did this completely in backstitch, call me crazy but I think that stitch is more "boyish" than the others that I can do... Undecided

rocket ship...


and lettering...


And here is the one for my baby.  Split stitch around the outside, stem stitch in the middle of the wings, and satin stitch for the body. 



For both of these, I used tearaway stabiliser.  It worked GREAT for the butterfly, which I did first, but with the rocket ship, I found that it pulled the stitches away quite badly, and I had to do some damage control in a couple of places.   Angry  I think this is to do with the back stitch not being as "strong" as the other stitches.  Maybe??  Anyone know?  Either way, I've now found some water soluble stabiliser on eBay which I'm waiting to be delivered, so this should probably solve the problem anyway. 

By the way, so sorry about the shadowy photos, this house has terrible lighting issues.  Perhaps also has to do with the photographer...  Tongue

Comments and criticism appreciated.  And thanks for looking!!  Grin

That's funny. . . I can totally see how stem stitch can be considered more girly. Very cute butterfly and awesome rocket.

Well thanks everyone for your comments!  I'm so happy you all like them.   Grin
The water soluble stabiliser arrived today, so I'm really looking forward to testing it out on some more bibs!  Hurrah!!
Cute love the little rocket. its one of my favorite designs!!! great job. Your satin stitch is great. I still cant get the hang of it.
Thank you Brook, I'm continuing to persist with little bits of satin stitch, much as I hate it.  I'm happy you think it's ok!
