‘The Foodie Catcher’ catch all bib PDF pattern released!!!

Foodie Catcher bib PDF pattern by Oak Tag Designs - available through Etsy

Ive been selling the catch all bibs on etsy for a few weeks now. I just love them. Im not sure if I have mentioned it before, but the pattern is one that I drafted myself after using so many different bibs for my kids. My second daughter had the pleasure of using some, which Ive since modified a bit.

The bib folds up at the bottom to catch any food, but can be let down as the child gets older, or for washing. It also uses a cotton fabric on the front to catch fluid and food, while the microfleece or minky on the back acts to help fluid stay at the front and not leak through to the child’s clothes. It fits 6 months through to 4 years, so lasting a baby and toddler the whole time they need a bib for meal times.

So my original intention was to release the pattern, and its finally finished!! It is now on my Etsy store, as a PDF pattern, ready for download.

The pattern is AU$6, but with the 10% sale in my store lasting to the end of September, you have a few more days to purchase it with 10% off! Just use the code ‘SEPT10′ in check out.

Elsa inspired hoodie

My eldest daughter got a little bit (read, A LOT) naggy toward her little sister to borrow a Frozen hoodie and t-shirt she received for her birthday. So I decided to make her one of her own. I went through all the fabric suitable in my stash for a hoodie, and managed to find just enough light blue and cream, plus light blue ribbing.

I wanted to make it a bit special by making the cuffs have thumb holes, to make it glove like. I made one, but my daughter was complaining it was too tight. I could also see that it would probably just get super dirty when she insisted on doing everything with her hands in the cuffs, so off it came, and I put normal cuffs on.

I used this pattern to cut it out, and just changed it to have ribbing rather than folded up.

Overall, Im pretty happy with how it turned out :) Bit of a shame (although not at the same time!) that now the spring weather has started, and it won’t be long before hoodies won’t be needed!

Dabbling in some crochet with the Fiona Button Scarf

Fiona Button Scarf

It’s been pretty chilly here recently, and I only have one, that right, only one, scarf!! Unbelievable!

I found this great youtube video for the Fiona button scarf and its matching pattern and some yarn and off I went.

I found it really easy to follow and managed to use up the rest of the yarn I had leftover from the Lomond hat Ive been sporting around this winter. Then some more leftover yarn, and some vintage buttons I had. And voila! Hopefully a warm neck!

More catch-all bibs :)

Catch all bib - fits 6 months to 4 years

I finished these bibs last night, and now they are up on my Etsy store. Admittedly, I had almost finished them about 2 weeks ago, but… I didnt have enough of the right coloured snaps, so I had to wait for some more.

Still my favourite of the catch-all bibs is the stripey ones. I sold one to a friend last week and it jet-setted off to the UK for a lucky little baby boy :)

I think this will be the second last colour in the catch-all bibs for a while. I’m going to be (as promised for a long time!) releasing some patterns soon :)
