Sew & Tell

So this is my first time participating in Sew & Tell and I must say I'm excited! Of course I do have a confession to make...I technically finished these projects this past Saturday, but just got the chance to blog about them...so does that still count for this week's Sew & Tell? I hope so...


I have two very lovely friends (Aimee & Amy) who are both very pregnant and due within a week of each other. To celebrate their new little ones entering the world, a group of us from church had a combined shower for them. It made making the presents much easier b/c I finished them at the same time. I found a darling pattern for a tactile blanket and bib from this fun book.

For the first Aimee (who is expecting a little girl) I used some beautiful Amy Butler Love.

I used a super soft fleece for the back both the bib and the blanket. Mmm...just so cuddly.


The other Amy is expecting a little boy named Drew. She's decorated his nursery in all things monkeys so I knew that this fun monkey fabric would be perfect for a bib.



I machine-appliqued a "D" to his blanket. It's gonna be such a fun blanket to learn with.


I also used some super soft fleece for his bib and blanket. But since he's a boy (and I ran out of the cream) I thought the gray would work the best.


All-in-all these were really fun and easy to make. I think I'll be making more for the other expectant mothers that I know.

Fantastic bibs--they will be adored. My sewing day if Friday, so if I don't finish it then (for the next week's post), that's it. Don't worry too much about the timing. Welcome!
