Geaux Tigers!

It's Shameless Commerce Tuesday and today I'm featuring baby bibs for little Louisiana State University (LSU) Tigers fans and little New Orleans Saints fans.
Now, you may ask, why is a Yankee from Husker Nation (aka Nebraska) sewing LSU bibs?  Truth be told, I've never even been to Louisiana.

Well, it all started, as many projects do, with a custom order.  Last November, an enthusiastic LSU fan wanted me to make Christmas stockings in purple and gold:

She loved the fabric.  But I had leftovers -- so I decided to use the extra fabric to make baby bibs.  Well, not only did I sell several LSU bibs, I've had requests for more.  My supplier for Cajun fabrics is Angela from All Stitched Up:  http://www.allstitchedupbyangela.com.  And while reordering, I couldn't help but buy some other cute Tiger-themed purple and gold fabrics:
Here is a link to my LSU fleur de lis baby bib listing:  https://www.etsy.com/listing/86995192/baby-bib-reversible-lsu-purple-on-gold.  The bibs are made using (with permission) a ModTods digital pattern and tutorial: http://www.etsy.com/listing/80657313/tutorial-baby-bib-pdf-pattern-tutorial

  1. Great idea to use the remaining fabric for bibs! Great gifts for the sports team loving family :)

  2. You know I love the one I got from you!! Geaux Tigers from a true Tiger fan!!

  3. Cute idea! I didn't know what Geaux meant and expected to see a photo of a rare Tiger. LOL

  4. What a great idea, you should do more team logo items.

  5. It's great when you can use extras from custom orders for additional projects! Beautiful work as always.
