I can't reveal the whole quilt yet as it's as much a gift for his Mummy as it is for him. I hope this gets the creative side of every ones brains working, trying to figure out what design I've come up with. My nephews b'day is on Thursday so I'll do the big reveal then..... Promise.
This morning before work I managed to whip up this cute little bib. I put some plastic on the top layer of fabric to add a bit more durability.....For the backing fabric I used a lemon gingham and then to fasten it up at the back I used a big chunky brass press stud......Next time I'll use bias tape around the edge of the fabric to finish it off instead of turning it inside out after stitching the inside seam as I found that really difficult with the thick plastic layer. What do you think?? Do you have any suggestions?
Oh, by the way...... I used my new machine 'Jan' (yes, that's right... she has a name now, Janome Jan) to whip both of these little beauties up. Oh so proud!!!!
