An easy project

It is another very gray Saturday here. Gray and rainy is perfect sewing weather, but it is not so good for trying to take photos of the finished products.

Simple Bib

This is the Simple Bib from Bend-the-Rules Sewing. (No, I do not have any big news. It is a gift for a baby shower I am going to next weekend.) It was, as the title claims, simple. So that was nice. Especially since the dinky little project I was working on yesterday was a total bust. The front is quilting cotton and the back is flannel. I think I'll make a couple more to go with this one. I do have a lot of that blue dot fabric still, after all.

And! I got to use my new snap-setting pliers! This is the first time I've tried snaps that are not of the sew-on variety. So that was exciting. (Although, with the snap close-up here, you can see how wonky my topstitching is around tight curves. Yikes.)

Simple Bib

I bought the snap-setting pliers yesterday. I had the day off work, so I made the trip up to the fabric store. I also came home loaded up with fabric for clothing-type fall/winter projects. Woohoo!

new fabric!
