I FINALLY finished these! I’m so excited!!

I’ve been working on these bibs off and on since mid-december, they’ve been my sitting-in-front-of-the-tv, I-feel-too-crappy-to-sew project!

The bibs themselves came from ikea, and they seem to be decent quality. They’re not perfectly shaped which slightly irritates my OCD tendencies, that’s okay, it’s really  only obvious when they’re ironed, and I doubt they’ll ever be ironed again! And they were a great deal, so it’s all good!

All 5 of them –

They’re all sublime stitching patterns, except for the one with the baby’s name on it.

The crow/raven/black bird – this image is from The Gothic Grandeur transfer set

The baby’s mom is pretty goth, and not really into traditional baby stuff, so I wanted to have at least one gothier bib (as gothy as you can get with yellow bias tape at least!)

The swallow – I think this image is from the Tattoo Your Towels set, but I honestly don’t remember!

This was the first one I did, and you can tell. People keep saying that the longer you embroider, the faster you are, but I seem to be the opposite! The more I embroider, the more anal I get about embroidering, and I get slower! Since this was the first one, the stitches are bigger.

The sugar skull – this image is from the Dia De los Muertes transfer set
I LOVE how this turned out! It’s so bright and cheery!


The name
The baby’s name is Torrin, and I printed it up in word in Old English Text font.


The Rocket – this image is from the new craft pad, which I LOVE!

i just finished this one the other night, i'd actually started a different design (the born bad baby from the mitch o'connell set), but i ripped it out and did this instead!

All of the bibs were made using tearaway stabilizer (best shit ever!) the images were transferred onto the stabilizer, or in some cases, just traces onto the stabilizer. It worked really well, and I didn’t have to worry about transferring the designs onto the stretch terry of the bib.




And while i'm posting pics, i'll post this as well, because it's not really exciting enough to post on it it's own (exciting to me obviously, just maybe not to you guys! Wink)

i embroidered this back in the fall for jungrrl, but never got around to posting it. it's embroidered on a fleece scarf (again using tearaway stabilizer), and the image is an outline of the fabulous kitty stuffies she makes!

the scan, with more detail


and a photo, with more accurate colours


i was SO PROUD of my stitching on this scarf, it's so even! (i'm easy to amuse, really!)


i hope you like everything!

thanks pixeegrl! it just takes time! my first embroidery was when i was 10 or 11, and it was pretty sloppy! i stopped for a long time, and now i'm getting back into it. OCD tendancies help!

mine seemed to take a little while too, so don't stress yet!

i went to order the craft pad, and then realized that the patterns were on sale too, so i ended up buying a whole bunch! i'm super excited about the julie west patterns - they're not my particular style, but i LOVE them! i can't make up my mind what to embroider them on!


thanks boolace7!! i needed to make cool bibs, cause my torbot's a super cool kid! Wink
