Tonight the Papertrey Ink design team is featuring Lisa's new Just For You stamp set. It's a handy little collection of labels and images that make giving homemade gifts easier. Now, if you are here and checking it out, I know you are already a paper crafter. It's a rare paper crafter who only stops there when it comes to the creativity. Chances are, you probably have other hobbies as well. We just can't help our crafty selves, can we? These stamps have got all your bases covered.
I'm a bit of a reluctant knitter. Haven't broken out the needles in over a year. This assignment was exactly what I needed to get back into it. Perfect thing for a pregnant lady to be doing while having her feet up. I decided to knit some basic bibs for my new little one. I figured I'd wrap it all up for my post and then bust it open myself for Baby E. Once you bibs like this, it's hard to go back. Nice and cushy with the option of making them wider and longer than store bought.
The problem? I liked how things looked all packaged up so much that I decided to save it for a baby gift instead. It's seriously cute. Guess I have to just sit in a recliner a few more nights and make Baby E some more bibs. Twist my arm. Finding it really relaxing.
Folded up two bibs in a mini loaf pan from the Dollar Spot at Target. Surprisingly easy to cover with paper. Now I need to stock up on some more. :) I included a baby spoon to go along. Would be even nicer to buy a heirloom version for an extra special shower gift. The loaf pan got me thinking about the "Bun in the Oven" stamp from Favor It Baby. Tied everything together nicely when used under stamps from Lisa's new set.
Now, you have to make a matching card as well. Just. Can't. Stop. Bib shape is a Silhouette cut. I'm so in love with that Dotty Biscotti paper. I didn't leave a single PTI baby stamp set unused for this project. Used Baby Button Bits and Bitty Baby Blessing here as well.
Bib pattern is from Mason Dixon Knitting. Super simple garter stitch. Yarn is the Sugar N'Cream line you can get at pretty much any craft store. One ball makes a bib. At $2 a pop, pretty good deal.
