Bibs, Skirts, & Lace – Sewing for Friends

There is nothing like being able to give someone something unique and handmade with love. While store bought gifts are wonderful, I do enjoy being able to create things with my own hands.

Recently, I had the pleasure to celebrate the upcoming birth of a sweet baby girl! With her and mommy in mind, I went through my stash of fabric and trims and created a few simple things – a bib and sweet little skirts.

The bib is fashioned with Michael Miller’s petals seafoam garland and backed with blue flannel I’d purchased from Joann’s. I used velcro to create the closure.

I also made some girly skirts complete with lacy, frilly trim! As I was sewing these things, I texted some images to some close friends and one responded, “If I was a baby, I’d wear that!” Love my Maeghan!

The material from the skirts was purchased at Hobby Lobby some time ago so it was a perfect find in my stash as I set out to make some skirts! I had a pacifier clip in my stash that I’d made so I included that as well.

There is nothing like giving handmade, homemade gifts and I have more projects up my sleeve for the babes and their moms and dads in my life.

What are your favorite things to give at baby showers?
