So here's how I've been passing the time waiting. I was going to make some bibs but just wasn't that into it. Then I came across this post by Andrea at Mouse in my Pocket. I dug around in my scraps and came up with ribbon and fabric to make my own little taggie blankie. What fun! (Thanks for the idea, Andrea!!)
A lot of the fabric is from quilts I made for this little baby's cousins. The solid blue and vehicle fabrics (Daddy's an automotive engineer, so yeah) are flannel, and the tags are ribbons left over from decorating for Mommy and Daddy's wedding rehearsal party. I cut fabrics 2 and 3 inches wide and variable lengths to make the strips. The whole thing (without the tags) measures about 10 1/2 by 12 inches.
Here's the back (fleece leftover from a sleeper I made for L's doll):
I did some minimal quilting to hold it all together.
While I was rooting around in the fabric bins, I came across just enough flannel left over from C's bibs that I made in December to make a couple more. So I got into bib making after all.
