That song came to mind as I was sewing a custom order using cute baby elephant fabric designed by Tim & Beck for Moda fabrics. I had used the fabric for a baby bib I have listed in my Etsy shop. But my Canadian customer asked me to make two oven mitts and a matching potholder out of the fabric -- to match her 1950s teal stove!
So on this Shameless Commerce Tuesday, I've decided to share that custom order with y'all (one of two custom challenges I worked on this past weekend):
I would never have thought to use that fabric for oven mitts -- but they are kinda cute, if I do say so myself.
In addition to my two custom orders, I also sewed 17 more reversible cotton baby bibs -- most od them were to restock sold listings. Granddaughter Erin will hammer on the capped metal snaps this weekend. I hope to have a few more sewn by then.
The bibs show below will be NEW listings in the Baby Bibs and Blankets section of my Etsy shop once the snaps are attached and I get them photographed:
I'm not usually a huge owl fan -- but these colorful little owls designed by Greta Lynn were just too cute! I also love those cute little baby blue pickup trucks from the Tiny Trucks collection by Michael Miller Fabrics. The abstract floral is a colorful fabric designed by Rashida Coleman Hale for her Washi fabric line. It's been in my stash awhile (too pretty to cut)--but I finally decided to make some cute and contemporary little girl bibs -- but I saved a bit for zipper pouches.
Speaking of zipper pouches --- I've got some REALLY fun back-to-school pouches in the works. They'd also make great holiday stocking stuffers. Check back on Thursday for a sneak peek!
