"Tweet" reversible bib

Whipped up this little number for a friend who had a baby girl in the spring....will be seeing him this weekend at our reunion so thought I would make something special for his wee one. On this side I used a linen-look cotton blend as a base, and appliqued on a sweet birdy, using Heat and Bond and some hand stitching with my Perle 8 thread (I think I am hooked on hand stitching!). On the reverse, I used that cute bird fabric that I picked up at the local Fabricland for under $4/yard. Then I monogrammed on her initial with a little Hunky Dory. A little snap closure, and away we go! A nice, quick project.

Linking up to Quilt Story Fabric Tuesday.

Love the design of the bib. Not too sure about the button-eye though. Taking into account my little lady: she would nibble away on it. Maybe some additional hand-stitching?

Heather said...

very nice … love it … thanks for sharing :)

Thanks guys!

I had thought about the button....I know, not considered baby safe, but I reinforced it extra well! May do a french knot next time.
