Another Project Revealed (revised)

Well, I'm hoping that the baby gift recipient has received their baby gift because I'm posting it here now. One of these was sent with a card just as a token gift. Another more substantial gift will follow.

I sewed 3 inch strips of pretty fabric together at a width adequate for the bib pattern I downloaded from the internet. I forget the source... The little bird was included in a purchase I made from MissesKwitty's Etsy store. I just hand appliqu├ęd the cute little guy on there. Then sewed a length of chenille ricrac across one of the seams. I sewed velcro on to each tab on either side of the bib. For the back I used real chenille fabric. I also ironed interfacing onto the cotton fabric after sewing the strips together. It is a little stiff, next time I'd use a softer interfacing!

Another will be given with a cute throw pillow in pink and gray with little baby forest animal print at a shower that I cannot attend this Saturday. For this, I copied the birdie and cut it out of another piece of fabric.

Also, I noticed a cute recycled tree project over at Manda's blog, Treefall. She posted a FREE TUTORIAL! I will have to put this in my "to do" file because I'm not letting myself start any new projects!!!! Not until my scarf is done at least.
