When I got the invitation from my old boss for a baby shower for his first grandchild, I decided that I had better finish the baby quilt that I had started
a while back. It would be a good one since the parents had decided not to find out the sex of the baby. They wanted it to be a surprise!
I quilted it in the ditch and picked a cute little multi-colored striped fabric for the binding. I think this will work just fine for a boy or a girl. I remembered that I had run across a cute pattern
for a baby bib and decided that I would make one of those.
I picked out several 1.5" strips and sewed them together. I then used Bonnie Hunter's directions in her Streak of Sunshine pattern to cut that sewn piece into 1.5" strips and sewed them back together.
I used the template that was provided in the pattern
and followed the directions to finish it. Now I just needed to have something to wrap them in, so I dug through my stash and found real cute sock monkey fabric. Since I am a member of the Denver Chapter of the Green Bag Lady Project, I thought that I would use the same pattern that I use for those bags
to make a bag for Elizabeth. I added a lining in her bag. You can watch a video to learn about the Green Bag Lady Project
I guess I am going to have to find some more Sock Monkey fabric because when my hubby saw Elizabeth's bag he wanted to keep it! Happy quilting everyone!
