Another year, another close friend/family member having a baby boy. Smiley

My good friend is due to have a baby boy in early July so for her baby shower I decided to embroider baby bibs like I did for my sister-in-law: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=384229.0. Everything is done in split stitch and the bibs are a 10-pack of Circo terry cloth bibs from Target. Weirdly I had a lot more snagging, with the elastic terry cloth threads coming up with my needle/thread, than I did last time. Sometimes I was able to push/pull them back underneath but not always. Darn it. Tongue


My friend and her husband love classic rock, so I looked around online for something very rock and roll. I couldn't find anything exactly perfect so I used inspiration from a couple different designs and drew this up.


Line-drawing of an elephant. Slightly embarrassing, but this is actually the logo from some company. I saw it on a cardboard box at a friend's house and scribbled it down without noting the name of the company, and now I can't figure out what it is. But I liked how loopy it was and thought it was great for a baby bib.


Urban Threads high-centered cow who tried to jump over the moon. I liked this one so much when I did one for my nephew that I had to use the design again. Smiley


Dinosaur with a crooked tail.


Rocket ship. Also a repeat because flames shooting out of a rocket is just too much fun to do only once.


Blue whale with a whale of a tail!


My friends are HUGE Nebraska football fans, so a Nebraska bib was a must!


And a nosy giraffe, chomping on some leaves. Hm. I really should have taken a better picture of this guy. I love how he's peeking over the edge of the bib like he's saying, "Hey. What's up." ^_^


Probably my absolute favorite. Mr Messy from the Mr Men books, hugely inspired by crochetchick's bib and Mr Men quilt squares: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=337348.0
I've wanted to do a Mr Messy bib ever since I saw her post, but was too intimidated to try and make him last year for my nephew. Now I wish I had because I love how he turned out and my nephew, like all babies, certainly was a Mr Messy. Cheesy

Now two close-ups from my two fave bibs:


(Mr Messy's eyes are satin stitch)


And a group pic of all the bibs. Smiley There's only nine out of the ten pack here because I held one back so once my friends decide on a name I can do a monogram.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks, guys!

@alwaysinmyroom: My husband really liked the little giraffe, too. Smiley

@kawaiihelen: Aren't Mr Men the best? Smiley But I was shocked--most of the people at the baby shower had no memory of the Mr Men/Little Miss books and characters!
