I made some new bibs. They are triangle neckerchief style.
These are 100% cotton, double gauze. The double gauze is nice and absorbent for all that baby dribble. Hands up who else has a soggy baby? It can also help with sweat rash if you happen to live in a stupidly muggy place (Japan). Just put a fresh one on once it gets damp. Another benefit of the gauze is it a woven fabric that stretches when pulled on the diagonal. That means it has give around the baby’s neck.
I made two designs. The first is baby blue with rich deep indigo zebra stripes. Lets call it ‘baby blue zebra’.
Design number 2 has some ‘hotaru’ firefly circles and some experimental stitch resist parts. It’s dyed with a slight gradient from dark to mid-blue.
So here is our model (aged 1 year and 2 months) just learning to walk.
As you can see he’s quite pleased with himself about that.
A small plastic popper for easy putting on and taking off.
And here is the firefly design. I think it looks very stylish. They work great with plain white clothes or matched up with more indigo (of course!) . It would also be cute to wear with a mum who had a matching scarf..
