Super Bowl Bibs!

Super Bowl Bibs

I am not a football fan. I am not a baseball, hockey, tennis, basketball, soccer, or even a ping pong fan. I am a mean tether ball least I was in 6th grade. I do enjoy watching figure skating on TV, too. I guess you could say I am not a sports fan. I am a minority, I know. That's the way it is.

Anyway, yesterday while the Big Game was broadcast all over the world, I was up in my sewing room making a few bibs for a friend of mine. Nancy became a first-time grandma a few months ago and I decided I'd better hop to the bib-making before this little lady was eating with chopsticks on her own! I was in pure bliss as the TV roared below me. Give me a little Pandora and my fabrics and I'm a happy girl. Well, throw in a sewing machine too.

The hardest part for me...also the most choosing coordinating fabrics. I have quite the stash. Ahem. Let's leave it at that.

Then there's the part where I need to choose a design. Yes, I have quite a collection of those too.

 I tried 3 different bird designs til I found one that worked for me. I really like how this one matches the birdies in the fabric.
Notice the yellow ends on the neck edge? Well, those weren't part of the original plan. One of the ends got sewn to the applique, so I had to cut it out and sew on some patches. Does it look like it's supposed to be there?
The coordinated backs. These bibs are reversible!
The final step...sewing on snaps. I used to put a Velcro closing on the bibs, but a few moms said their little stinkers learned quickly how to pull the bib off. So, it's snaps from now on, unless someone requests otherwise.
These pretty bibs will go in the mail today to my good friend, Nancy.
I hope she is blessed with many more grandbabies!
