What A Hoot!

I made some bibs for Mr. Kimble.  Even though he is still refusing all foods, I am anticipating the day when he will eat.  Baby can't live on breastmilk alone, right? 

So, about a month ago, I was chatting with some girlfriends at the park, and one of them, Heidi, had something in her hand.  It looked cute, so I grabbed it to see what it was.  It was the cutest corduroy bib! She said her mom made it for her (if I remember correctly).  I declared myself INSPIRED and  took a picture of her bib so that I could recreate it's masterpiece on my own time.  This is the picture.


Just adorable!  So, last week, I saw that the plain corduroy fabric was on sale.  So I got some of that, and used my 40% off coupon on the printed corduroy (the owls!) and went home with great enthusiasm.  In no time at all, I made five bibs.   They turned out so cute!


The  backs are lined with either blue or green corduroy, depending on what I used on the front.


After I made one after the likes of Heidi's bib, I became adventurous and made other decorative touches.


Keaton helped hold up Kimble, so I could take some pictures of him wearing the bib.  Keaton was still in his pajamas, although it was two in the afternoon.  My kinda kid.


At this point, Mr. Kimble was ready for his nap.

What do you think?  Super cute and totally super durable.  I mean, you can't go wrong with cute little owls on corduroy, can you?

So cute, I LOVE the fabric completely and utterly. And the baby in them ain't so bad either. :) As for living on breast milk alone, I think some babies just might. I know Luke would have if I'd let him!
