I made this cheerful, and hopefully gender neutral looking, bib this morning. Luna's teacher is going on maternity leave tomorrow and I thought it would make a nice goodbye gift. I have also added a (not perfect but still quite cute) personalised label. My new machine does some decorative embroidery like letters and decorative stitches. I'm not a fan of machine embroidery in general but I do find it handy to make nifty labels like these with it!

The bib pattern is from Amy Karol's wonderful Bend the Rules Sewing. I bought that book when I started sewing and used it a lot during the first year or so. I also tried my hand at the bib pattern then but it didn't turn out quite as nice as this one. :)  Do you have an all time favourite craft book too?

P.s. Thanks for all your congrats and comments to my last post. It was also nice to read there are many other Viking girls out there!


  1. this is a really good craft book, hoepfully when i get a new sewing machine, i'll be able to try out the beautiful projects....

    there is a flickr group too, it was tricky to find and i don't have it bookmarked, but it might be called 'i heart linen' and she blogs

  2. as always your things are beautiful! I am also a hand embroiderer only but just got a new machine with the same lettering and I think it's perfect for labels! Yea!
