Now that our daughter Alba tries to eat by herself, normal bibs are not enough anymore to protect her clothes. On some days I have to change her after each meal, she just can't / doesn't want to eat properly. To reduce the amount of laundry (haha, wishful thinking...) and to take care of her clothes, I wanted to buy a bigger bib with sleeves. But I found only some plastic things in the big Swedish furniture store, and I HATE them.
I went to a fabric store recently (I needed some notions for one of my Christmas fair projects), and what did I find? Yes, fabric. For a fabric-addict like me no wonder. A cute cotton print by Quilting Treasures, the sweetest Paddington bears making cookies on a bright orange background, just the colour of orange marmalade. A perfect print to make stains of all kind kindly disappear!
Of course, after we had lunch, I brought my little one to bed for her nap, and while she was sleeping, mommy worked. I got the inspiration for the pattern from a bib that is too small now. I found some remains of a blue bias tape I had to sew together.
