In order to celebrate reaching 500 likers on my Facebook page I thought it was time for a giveaway! So I searched high and low through my fabric stash and made this lovely Christmas baby bib - My 1st Christmas! The bib is premade (two layers of polyester/cotton with velcro closure) and will fit from newborn to approximately 12 months of age and maybe longer!
I have appliqued and embroidered this bib using the fabric and thread colours as seen. I have then made and sewn some matching bias binding to finish the bib. So how do you win this bib? First you need to be a liker of my Facebook page (please remember to like from your personal page not your business page) then you need to visit my Christmas bib album for 2012 and tell me which bib you like and you will receive one entry into the draw.
If you share this Christmas bib album then you will receive a second entry into the draw (please note if you share mutiple times you will still only receive one extra entry). This giveaway is open until 9pm Thursday night 27/9/2012 (Australian time) so hurry up so you can be in the running. This bib is valued at $16 and will come to you via registered post (within Australia only) or regular air mail for overseas participants.

I needed to make some more Birthday presents so a few weeks ago I raided my stash and came up with four different fabrics. Two bags are made from quilting cottons, the third is made from Satin and cotton and the last is made from calico with some strips from a Jelly roll used at the top and bottom.
So I measured a rough pattern for the bag - 18inches x 12.5inches and added extra fabric so the bag would be lined. The black ribbon was purchased from Spotlight and was the only purchase I had to make.
The embroidery design came from here on Etsy and is easy to stitch out. The hardest decision was which colour threads to use!
What do you think? Like any of them??
