Elephants, Burb cloths and Bibs
I've been doing a bit of unselfish sewing for a new arrival in my family - my brother will soon be a father and I had to gather supplies and make a few things to welcome the bub. (Oh and I get to be an Aunt!!)
I made 6 elephants (not all for this bub as there's a few more advertised by friends too!). The pattern is from Retro Mama and I've made it up before - in 2012 if I wasn't as slow about blogging as I am now! Same fabric as a previous pair of PJs (which I wore to death - comfy and light), purchased in the early days of sewing when I hadn't a clue of how many metres to buy so still have quite a bit left over! The ears are in quilting cotton (some from leftovers on this top).
And two with some pre-Christmas Made Marion quilting cotton purchases.
I also made up two bibs and 4 burb cloths for my new niece/nephew (niecphew?) using the Casey pattern from Sadi&Sam (originally from Spit up and Stilletos - and formerly free).
Quilting cotton with New Zealand pukekos for the bibs. These are such a fun and cheeky bird - I hope it'll provide inspiration for my niecphew :)
The bibs are lined with facecloths (new ones) and there's more soft velcro than the scratchy side (hah! I couldn't be bothered looking up the correct terms.
I really love that leaf fabric. The red fabric is also a New Zealand design - my brother and sister in law are going to be so exotic when the babe is throwing up on them :)
They're lined with a fleecy cotton I had left over from a scarf project.
