A few weeks ago I was checking out some new to me blogs and stumbled upon Nana Company and this post. (Go check it out, I'll wait).
Is Amy not THE most creative person ever? I love her style, her attention to minute detail and I especially love her use of tiny Japanese prints and those clever little fabric patches. I so wanted to copy her.
Like so many of you, my problem is that I get these big ideas and have absolutely no time. So I wanted a project that could be completed in a day. The one thing I've learned about myself after all these years is that my projects had better be quick because I know next week I'll be off on another creative tangent and the stack of fabric I took home this week will be buried and forgotten under next weeks new ideas.
Enter these bibs.
Sadly I have no one to make bibs for anymore, but these just happen to be the perfect vehicle for fussy little ruffles, pintucks and Amy's fabulous made from fabric, patches. Oh, and most importantly, they're fast.
Sunday ended up to be just about perfect - a windy, drizzly day, the smell of soup simmering on the stove and me in my PJ's ruffling, pintucking and patching up a storm. The only thing that would have made it better would have been if it never had to end.
Here's what I came up with:
Thank you Amy for the inspiration!
