Fresh From The Sewing Room

Flower Applique Monogrammed Bib


Yesterday I showed you an embroidery/applique design I just purchased and I only had the shop example to show you. Last night, I embroidered out the flower on a bib to see how it looks. Pretty cute! Here it is on a bib. This "S" bib is for sale if you would like it. I am going to post it at the calicodaisy etsy shop. This is a generously sized bib, just right for a baby moving towards a year old. Don't forget my little treat offer mentioned on yesterday's posting.

RETRO TODDLER APRON:

Toddler Apron 2T to 4T

Another finished product is this darling toddler apron. (I know, it looks like a halter top here!) It is sized for 2T to 4T, and I used this great fabric I was crazy for at the quilt shop a couple of months ago. I was thinking some kind of bag or skirt for me, but I love how the cool, retro fabrics look in a little one's clothing. The apron would look great paired with a tee-shirt and worn over jeans for a sort of chic retro baby look. I sure wish I had a baby to dress in the styles that are out today - especially now that I have all this technology! Plus, I need a baby just to model my creations, but none are around right now for that either.

I'm going to put this apron in the etsy shop, too, later this morning.

My friend, the owner of the wire dress form I have in my studio photos, bought this short wire dress form for me to hang on the wall. At first I was just thinking of it decoratively, however, other than the bustline behind this toddler apron, it looks just right to show off clothing and aprons. She bought it at TJ Maxx. Next time I take pictures, I'll have to get a shot of this without anything hanging on it.

Wow - these look great! I love doing embroidery but have never tried the applique on my embroidery machine. This definitely makes me want to try it!! Love the apron and I agree, great choice of fabrics.
