‘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.

I got LABELS!!

So really, I want to put about 10 exclamation marks on the title of this blog post. I’m terribly excited that I now have my own clothing labels. I have been sussing them out for a while, and finally ordered them.. to discover they take 2.5 weeks to come. The people at Gang Apparel Accessories were great though; quick to respond, answered all my questions, and delivered a perfect product.

So I waited patiently next to the mail box,  and eventually they arrived. Hooray!

Here are the brand labels. They were made as a cotton weave.

Sewing, sewing, sewing…

Sneak peak

 

Ive been knitting a lot lately. A lot. And trying to tweak the knitting pattern I hope to have out soon. But alas, my poor little brain needs a break from the knitting and its math. So back to a sewing pattern that is also very close to completion. I tested out some fabrics today.. so here is a sneak peek. For some reason I just cant go past the orange butterflies with purple. I just love it!
