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.
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!
September is my favourite month 🙂
Spring (well, at least here in Australia!), my birthday, and this month.. my first pattern will be released.
So in celebration, for the month of September 2014, I am offering 10% off all purchases in my Etsy store Oak Tag Designs.
Just enter the coupon code ‘SEPT10’ in checkout to get the 10% off 🙂
