Hamilton, New Ze...
I know nothing about babies! Or what babies want or what people who have babies want….and my sister is having a baby shower in 2 weeks time. So I made her a charlie bag and some bibs. I read somewhere once that extra large bibs come in handy (for extra large messes I guess) but I curse that that tidbit stuck in my memory because these were a pain to sew! I did a poor job of the bias binding and attempted to do my own appliques. Disaster!!! So I bought some iron on ones instead. Oh well, I’m sure the baby won’t notice the imperfections (or at least if it does it will be polite enough not to comment)
Now I need ideas on what other baby paraphenalia to fill the bag with – help is much appreciated! :)
Canvas for outer and lining of bag and hand towels cut in half for bibs
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
