It's A Jungle Out There

It was move-in week at the colleges and universities in Lincoln, and back to school week for private and public K-12 schools.  Lots of traffic.  Lots of people.  Lots of activity.  It's as if the pulse of this college town increased by about 30 beats per minute.

It's a jungle out there!

So, for this week's Shameless Commerce post, I decided to feature some jungle-themed baby items from my Etsy shop:

The bib pictured above was made using Bundle of Jungle fabric designed by Laura Berringer for Marcus Fabrics.

This colorful bib features the king of the jungle.   The fabric is from the Roar collection designed by Marie Perkins for Robert Kaufman.  My daughter loved The Lion King.  She had a well-loved stuffed Simba that went with her to Harvard in 2006.

This cute little monkey is one of the many colorful critters on a bright tangerine background.  The fabric is from the Safari Sweet collection designed by Alyssa Thomas of Penguin & Fish for Clothworks.

And last -- one of my favorites -- an organic cotton print from the KID-E collection by Timeless Treasures.

All of the bibs were made using a Mod Tods Baby Bib pattern:  http://www.etsy.com/shop/modtods. I use capped metal snaps -- no Velcro to catch in baby's fine hair.  And I add a layer of preshrunk cotton flannel between the front and back of these reversible bibs to add extra softness and absorbency. The bibs are designed to fit infants, and measure approximately  11.75” x 7.75” (30 cm x 19.7 cm).  

You can find these and other bibs and baby items in the Baby Bibs & Blankets section of my Etsy shop, Pasque Flower Creations:  http://www.etsy.com/shop/pasqueflower?section_id=8146356.  Custom orders are welcome.
