Mario 2 bib !

Post by Loora »

All right, I'm really proud of myself for once. I did the embroidery on a strong linen, used for upholstery, the back is heavy wool (naturally repels liquids). I SEWED IT ! I'm such a klutz with my sewing machine, but I did all right for once.

The bib is for a new-born baby, so it has a security sew on the outside, to outline the bib. It attaches using velcro, and the velcro is glued and sewn, using a special stitch I just learned (real easy). Totally safe for babies, and 100% recycled, since I used scraps and leftover from other projects ! However, I'd prefer if the baby didn't puke too much on it...

The line reads: "5 fruits et légumes par jour", e.g. "5 fruits and vegetables a day". It's a catchphrase used by the French Health Ministry to promote healthy eating. I got inspired by the "Eat your veggies" project I found on this site. And I really, really love Mario 2 (Toad's fan, Shyguy's fan, turnips' fan, Mario 2 fan !).

I can include the pattern if someone wants it, but it's made of basic sprites, so it's not very interesting.

I think it looks really cute. When you see cross stitched designs on bibs it's almost too nice to even let a baby wear it. LOL

It's very cute. And it just gave me an idea what to do after I finish my current projects.

Aww, so cute! I'd love this for my 7 & a half month old daughter.... but it'd just get covered in food, milk and drool lol :D

I love it. Plus for using Mario 2 (one of my favorites!) Very clever idea.
