Another year, another close friend/family member having a baby boy.
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.
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.
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.
Now two close-ups from my two fave bibs:
(Mr Messy's eyes are satin stitch)
And a group pic of all the bibs.
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!
