DIY…Mad for Plaid Baby Bib

Life gets messy sometimes…with this cute little washable flannel bib, it’s ok.

It’s no secret that I love plaid, especially red plaid.

And…since I had red flannel left over from a pillow project,  I decided to make my sweet

grandson a cute little bib.  It never hurts to have a extra bib or two for those times when

he needs to get messy.

This is how I made my “Get Messy” flannel bib…

  • I made a pattern for my flannel bib by folding an old bib in half and laying it “fold to fold” on a folded piece of cardstock.
  • I wanted the new bib to be a little bigger than the original bib, so, I sketched it with pencil marks to extend the pattern.
  • Cut out the pattern and trace two bibs onto the flannel using a black permanent marker.  Cut out bibs from the flannel.
  • Sew bibs together leaving space on one end to turn bib inside out.  Iron bib to make it lay flat.
  • Sew a top seam around bib and to close the open end.
  • Personalize the bib using Iron-on Embroidered letters from Joy SA.
  • Attach Velcro on each end to close bib.

My “Get Messy” bib was created for and sponsored by Joy SA.

Sweet Baby BOO!

My sweet little grandson will be celebrating his first Halloween soon…

Inspired by our newest game, I decided to make him a cute little shirt to wear.

With the help of Iron-on Embroidered letters from Joy making the shirt was super easy.

  • prewash cotton t-shirt
  • set iron to cotton setting
  • position letters with shiny side down on garment
  • cover letters with a fine cloth
  • with firm pressure iron cloth over the letters for 25 seconds
  • turn shirt inside out and iron the back of the letters for 25 seconds
  • allow to cool for 1 minute before cooling

Isn’t he adorable?

Looking at this picture, I’m thinking really big googly eyes would look cute inside the “O’s”.

Monograms, Emojis and a little baby tee

With babies,  sometimes you only get a small window for  the shot you want.

The plan was to take a picture of him sweetly sleeping while wearing the shirt  with

the sleeping  Emoji.  As soon as we put the shirt on him he was wide awake.

Once awake we got all kinds of scrunched up newborn faces.  (some kind of funny)

I finally got this sweet little picture comfortably on his daddy’s lap

I got a kick out of these new emoji patches (that fit perfectly on a itty bitty pocket tee).

So easy to use.  Just position in place, cover with a thin white cloth and iron.

#Emerson…his first personalized shirt.

The new guy in my life…

There’s a new guy in my life and I’m in love.

Meet the newest member of our family, my sweet little grandson Emerson.

Emerson is my third grandchild, my third grandson and the littlest brother.

He has already stolen all of our hearts.

I’m so excited to have a new love in my life.

For Emerson’s layout, I used the Lullaby Collection from Pebbles Inc.

    • I created a lacey border for the photo using the Spellbinders Captivating Squares Die Templates* and cutting and piecing six squares together.
    • I wanted some small floral accents for my layouts so I fussy cut small flowers from the floral scrapbook paper.  I used thin 3D foam mounting squares on a few of the flowers.

Confession:  I’m not sure if you noticed or not… 

I did not use a plain white strip under the washi tape on the first picture on this post.

You can see the honeycomb underneath.  I like it better with the white strip.  It’s a little crisper.

I tried retaking the picture of the tag over 100 times.  That one was my favorite.  (so I stuck with it)
