the basics

One of the first things I started making was bib and burpcloth sets. After trying out a couple designs, tie and velcro, side closure or back, big or little. I came to what I believe is the perfect set for any newborn. The neck on the bib actually will fit into the toddler years, but when they begin to feed, I think a feeder bib works a whole lot better. I make my sets from super soft chenille and flannel usually. Lately, I have been trying to use up all the flannel and use strictly cottons. There is a much better fabric selection and of course, you can make clothes to match! :) I still stuggle with fun boy fabrics, but switching to cotton has allowed for some new prints. Finally!
