Baby gift

I've had a couple of friends bring a new baby in the world and I always like to give them a gift. I think it's more of an excuse to sew and create but I'd hate to admit to anyone that I was doing it for selfish reasons then the reason of giving, so I won't! I found a cute bib and doll pattern that I tried out and was so dang proud of myself when I finished it!! Even, my husband said, "Wow, you made those....they're awesome!". I know I've done well when I can get a response like that out of him!

The bibs and the doll took me about an hour to do. I think the hardest part was cutting the material out, only because I hate cutting material out! The doll is made out of flannel and the hair is just really thick yarn. I put a piece of felt in the middle of the bibs to make it a little firm.

AND I GET TO KEEP THEM!!!! Can't wait for Lila to wear the bibs, although mentally I'm having a hard time allowing my kid to destroy such cuteness with mashed food!
