I’ve been trying to design some easy-peasy knit/crochet bibs. I successfully made three!
The first one is a girl’s bib. I used an hour-glass cable and picot edging to finish it off. I crocheted a daisy flower to add. This process was interesting…I made 5 different flowers, trying to decide which one I liked best. I ended up loving the daisy more. I’ll probably make a couple more bibs for the other flowers…that’s my next project 🙂
This second one I finished up today. It’s a car bib. I started knitting up the background with a simple diagonal stitch, and the ends started to curl. I wasn’t too worried because I knew that I would be putting a border on it. It took me a whole day to finally decide on what border I thought was “boyish” enough. I finally decided to go with a simple applied i-cord.
My last bib is not quite done yet…but I can’t seem to figure out what it needs. I’m just not as happy with it as I am with the others. Does it need a baseball diamond, or perhaps a bat? Do I need to add a border, or is it fine the way it is? I’m still stewing on it.
Oh….and….THAT’S MY SON!!! See how big he is now?! It’s ridiculous how fast they grow. He’s such a ham.
So now that you’ve seen the bibs, what am I going to do with them you might ask. Well it’s been hard times lately (I lost my job), and mama needs to have some income until I nail another teaching job. So I’m thinking of setting up my etsy shop to sell patterns/hand-mades. I have a lot of time on my hands (even though I have a toddler) and can make things pretty fast. I have a ton of ideas for baseball team bibs. I’ve already sketched them out too.
Hey! If you have any requests, please feel free to send me a message! Take care 🙂
