I finally put together a bunch of new bibs. The church I belong to really does a good job of taking care of one another. And as part of my calling in the Relief Society, I get to visit brand new babies and their moms and give them a small gift. This gift is up to my discretion, so far as I can tell, and I have chosen bibs.
This isn't my entire stock, just the latest I have made. There are many many babies due to be born in my neck of the woods in the next couple of months, and I have an outside hope that what I currently have made will last through this year, that could be sketchy though. I basically cut the bottom off a bibster and used that as a pattern template. Then I picked from my large stash of scraps some cute prints. They are backed with terrycloth for absorbency and have velcro closures

Cotton Way. The fabric is Bliss by Bonnie and Camille. I bought the kit in September from Broadbents, then was too sick to really sew, so it took me a long time to get to it.

I used two bijou fabrics for the back plus a row of extra pieces I had from my earlier miscalculations. I really like how it turned out.
I did do other sewing in January, but mostly mending. As well, I almost finished my bliss quilt, I was binding it, but it will go in February finishes. I have a lot of sewing I want to get done before this baby comes, so I need to get organized with it all.
