Hello! I back in bib-making mode, with more friends having babies   Grin yay for babies!

So the latest creation is for a friend, "fra-quaintance" as my 11-yo would say, who is having a baby girl at the end of this month.  Not just any baby girl, however.  This is her 6th child. Not only is this her 6th child, this will be her 5th girl.  So, of course, she needed something special.  I mean, being born after 4 other girls this kid will need some therapy. Good thing her dad is a Marriage and Family Therapist... hahahahaha

Here is my creation:

She can wear this proudly:

cute name, huh?

And because One Bib a gift does not make... I present to you - Peanut Butter Jelly Time!!!

I might add that the bib is flannel with a velcro closure, the back side is brown. I used stem stitch and some split stitch for the name.  Hope you enjoy!  Let me know what you think, eh?  Thanks, friends!

So cute!  And what a great way to individualize for a fifth girl!!!!  (I cannot even imagine life with 6 kids!!!  One is keeping me super busy!)

Progress not perfection.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Very cute and so well stitched.  It was very nice of you to think of little Sophia and her role in the family.  Loving the PB&J flannel, too!

I bumped it up to 6 strands and used split stitch for the name. The rest was done with 3 strands.  I just did another bib last night for a boy that I will post later today! Lotsa babies!

What a sweet idea for something that is especially hers as I'm sure she will have a lot of hand-me-downs.
