we've actually found them really absorbent - i think its because i made them out of tea towels.

Have made some more to add to the collection - bit bored of making bibs now though Smiley

Made using the 101 ways to sew a metre pattern book. The fabric is two tea towels and the bib is reversible. Fastened with a popper. Really pleased with how it turned out Smiley

How silly am I! I totally didn't understand that. Thanks for clarifying Smiley
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / second time swap on: June 12, 2014 07:13:15 AM
Just wondering how I go about getting a second swap. I did a newbie swap before, I'm not a newbie now but I need another swap before I can join in with most of the other swaps going on. Any ideas?
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Bulk Buy Satin Bias Binding on: June 12, 2014 04:08:47 AM
Not sure if this is the right place for this question but I'm wondering if there is a place/website where you can get discount on bulk purchases of satin bias binding. When I buy reels from the local shops they just sell it for the same price as if i'd purchased it per metre.

Would be shipping to UK.

really cute Smiley I love the patterned fabric - is it owls?
8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Baby dress no bloomers on: June 03, 2014 04:24:32 AM
I had a deadline with this dress and a number of disasters. It's from the Great British Sewing Bee book which accompanies the second season. In the book it's meant to have some baby bloomers but we had a vermin issue in our house, followed by some serious cleaning, packing and moving, then unpacking and having to find the pedal for my sewing machine so I could get this done in time for a first birthday. With all of that going on there was just no time to make the bloomers. I was up till midnight the night before sewing the many tiny buttons down the back - apologies for the bad photo quality.

The dress I'd make again with the changes I made to the pattern going along. I enlarged the collar and finished the ends of the collar off (the book didn't mention what to do with these - glad I read ahead!) as well as hiding all of the seams with double seams rather than just the shoulder seams. I like the neatness this brought to the brushed cotton.

It was my first time making bias binding and I did feel like i needed an extra pair of hands but again I'd give it another try. It was also only my second garment where I made the binding into a loop for each section so there would be no overlapping ends. It went pretty well although I normally sew at least one section the wrong way  Cheesy

I love it. Really really nice dress.
10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / New fleece dress on: February 16, 2014 04:51:58 AM
This dress is an adaptation of Burda 9829 view C. I used only two pattern pieces - the front and back. My friend had requested a new dress for her daughter as she had grown out of an earlier one I made. The earlier one was from a pattern I had made myself and this Burda pattern is the closest match I could get. I made it from a purple fleece blanket from Ikea. It is fastened with two poppers on each flap the stitching for which is covered with buttons.

The edging at the bottom was first edged in bias binding and then attached. I like how it has come out Smiley
