A perfect plan for me! [from Cat Patches blogger, click the button]

Occupy Sewing Room


I needed to spend a day down there and it was great fun....with a book on tape and NPR.


First I made more of the Union Jack pillows....





Then, I managed to make 9 bibs and one terry bathmat with a border....all for the children and grandchildren!


These are made with fingertip towels....and rib knit fabric. Tutorials (not mine) are available on-line for these wonderful, easy to use bibs!




Since I had the rib knit neckbands going so well, I cut some scrap denim and made some raw edge (so they can fray over time!) bibs out of old blue jeans.


This terry bath mat is from a remnant from work and some fabric in my stash!








Now, these things are definitely "loving hands at home" but I think they will be quite useful!

Not pictured but fun to do, I managed to make several more paper foundation string-pieced diamonds for a scrappy star quilt!

I love those kind of bibs - and Donnie is needing some bigger ones than he has. I had forgotten about them - I must go get some towels and make him a bunch - I have all the ribbing from when I made some for Ben - thanks for the reminder.

Everything is very cute.
