Booties and bibs

mosaicdetails from the beautiful Marcus Brothers "Bleeker street" print

Today I made some cute baby stuff for a friend .


booties



She is expecting the arrival of her 4th child, baby boy;), any day now....So I finally finished my handmade gift and sent it to her.




My granny knitted the booties with beautiful cotton yarn and I made the fabric/felt booties and a pair of bibs.I took the tutorial from Heather Bailey
's
blog and had so much fun!!!The only thing that I was worried about was the fact that I was creating something for a baby boy and not girl, meaning no flowers, no bows and no all colors allowed,LOL.
But anyway, the colors of the sea and sand is a perfect combo, either for girls and boys....I just love the combination and the Chestnut Hill fabrics by Joel Dewberry is always a good choice;)

The bibs are so easy to made, and these are my first ones ever.....and now I'm so sorry that I've never made any for my own kids:(...but well, can always be such a great gift for others;)
