i made these for sweets4ever and for knitting_nyxxie. jean had a baby in november, camden, and nyx is due to have anne marie in february (or sooner!). i did all of the hand embroidery back in november while i was visiting family, and then stitched i them together in mid december. these are all the sublime stitching patterns, i did a separate post of the doodle stitching ones.

here are the bibs for anne marie and nyx.

they're pink twill, and they're all backed with the same striped flanellette.

the gorgeous yellow rose


the pattern is the lisa petrucci pattern. i used chain stitch for the petal and the hair (i LOVE how the chain stitch looks in the bangs, almost like a knit consistency), back stitch for the eyebrows, eyes, eyelashes, lips, leaves and stem, satin stitch for the eyes, french knots for the eyes, and straight stitch for the nose.

the cute little kitty!


another lisa petrucci pattern. i used backstitch for the outlines, satin stitch for the stripes, eyes, and nose. i added a few straight stitches to the eyes, because they looked funny without pupils!

i also did a cupcake pattern for her, which wasn't sublime stitching or doodling stitching, but since it seems sill to post ONE bib by itself, i'll include it here!


the design is by Krissi Sandvik, it's actually a cupcake de guadalupe, i only stitched the cupcake part. the outer liner is chain stitch, with the inside lines back stitch. the icing is stem stitch, the sprinkles are straight stitch (stitch twice in the same spot), the cherry is satin stitch, and the stem is back stitch again.

and the bibs for jean and camden.

the two brown bibs are backed with solid brown cotton, and the two blue are backed with solid blue flannelette. i couldn't find a brown flannelette to match, unfortunately.

most of those bibs ended up being doodle stitching, so they're posted here, but the drum set was sublime stitching!


the pattern was from the sublime stitching craft pad, but it's also available in the rock'n'roll pattern. i used back stitch, straight stitch, chain stitch and split stitch. i wanted to use silver thread for the cymbals (is that what they're called?), but bibs need to be washed A LOT, and i wasn't sure if it would hold up.

i also did a machine embroidered sublime stitching bib for another friend, but thats' over on the machine embroidery board!

i hope you like them! comment AND criticisms are welcome!

I'm not happy, I'm cheerful. There's a difference.

Great bibs!  I really like your color choices...bright, happy, and maybe even camoflage-ing!  It's nice that you put soft flannel on the part that will touch baby's neck and velcro for speed!  Gosh...I'm gushing and I haven't even gotten to your Fabulous stitching!! Nice job! Wink

thanks so much!

i wanted bright colours so that stains wouldn't show! Wink my very first set was white terry cloth bibs from ikea, and i learned my lesson! i did the flanellette for softness, and also so that it could be used to wipe the baby's chin, it's more absorbent than the twill.
