O.k., so not exactly clothing... but I've been having a blast making baby bibs as of late. That's what happens when your sis is preggers and the neighbor has just dropped by with her newborn.

This was pretty easy to make. I pre-pleated the fabric, then cut it out from the pattern I created. The bib is bright white and the bow tie is a pretty purple batik (sorry - the colors didn't photograph so well).

I've never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks.

Thank you, everyone! =)

I know, Andrea... you got me hooked here ages ago, but I never got around to posting. *Looks at calendar and wonders when the next crafty day will be. Points at next week, noticing that she has NO EXTRA KIDS!!!*

Impish, I did it using a pattern that I made up, so kind of both.

I used my Omnigrid ruler to mark out two parallel lines an inch apart, then I marked out 4 lines 1/2 inch from each other on both sides of the 1 inch section. I worked from the outside in, matching the two closest lines, ironing, then sewing down the line to keep it pleated.

After I pleated it, I cut out a bib pattern I made up, that had an M shaped section at the bottom of the neck hole (for the collar). Then I cut another piece from the pattern, unpleated. Sewed them right sides together, turned, then ironed. I top-stitched along the outer edges for a more finished look.

The bow tie was a small rectangle, folded in half and sewed, then turned and ironed. I bunched it up and wrapped a piece of bias tape (made form the same purple fabric) around the middle, and securely stitched under the collar.

If I make any more, I'm going to do it slightly differently. I thought of a way to make the collar better. =)
