Ready to Launch

This cold wet Melbourne weather makes it easy to stay inside and do some sewing.

11 bibs ready for a meeting with Barry.

Why 11 rather than 10 you might ask? Well, you probably didn't! But I am going to tell you anyway.

I have been using Sew Funky's bib tutorial but have been too scared to finally top stitch the bibs I have made to date.

Top stitching is well, so, exposed.

Today I am determined to give it a go.

So 10 bibs, 5 for each lovely newborn recipient. Little B will be the proud wearer of the top stitched bib whatever the result!

Hope you are enjoying your Friday!

As my boys would say, that's a bib-o-rama! Good luck with the top stitching. They will make great presents.

I'm a big fan of the twin needle for top stitching. Even if you're wobbly, its two perfectly parallel lines all the way. I rely on the power of the optical illusion. :)

Yah! Top stitch away!
I actually love looking at top stitching when I manage to do it ok!
