Bye Bye Bibs

I'm pretty sure I first saw these little handkerchief bibs on made. That's the only sewing blog I follow...sewing is pretty far down on my list of hobbies, but it IS still on the list! :) 
Sometimes when you can't buy what you want, you have to attempt to sew it! I usually do a terrible job that's slapped together and never ironed afterwards, but that's fine with me. I LOVE how these turned out. I just bought shirting flannel and used jersey fabric and some sweatpant sort of material too. So much cuter to soak up the drool!
Or be a bandit. I made bigger ones for the boys for fun. Maybe I can get Derick to wear one at night to catch HIS drool!! Lol! I don't even know HOW people sleep with their mouths open. I've tried it a few times when I've been sick and have a stuffy nose, and I can't do it!! 
And it's a good thing Ava is so cute, because these vests I made her need all the help they can get! I love how the ruffles turned out, considering they were the first time ever trying a ruffle, but the actual "fit" of the vest....well, it didn't fit! Ha ha. Oh well, who needs to do up their vest anyways? :)
I made these one weekend when Jolene (my sister) was in town for a visit. She was checking out all the cute stuff on Matilda Jane, in particular, a vest. I told her we could make two vests before the day was done. I didn't realize when I said "we", she'd interpret that as "only Pam". Lol. Anyway, I DID finish them in a day, but I definitely would do them both differently next time! :) Like say, use a pattern...and possible measure something... If I had a girl, I'm pretty sure I would sew a TON more...so much of that MJ stuff could be sewn, don't get me wrong, I would be doing my fair share of ordering from that lovely little store, but I would also do my fair share of sewing too I think! And for the record, I personally think a few of the MJ items make little girls look like gypsy hobos! Lol! DON'T HATE ME!! :o) 

Ok, I'm off to work on another post...if anyone is looking to buy a camera or some lenses, then STAY TUNED. Christmas came early for me this year. ;)
