Bibs & Baby Gifts...{Baby Coleman}

I generally pride myself as being punctual and timely with gifts, but sometimes I just drop the ball. 

One of my first college friends, Kate, gave birth to baby Coleman way back in EARLY August. {I'm embarrassed.} I knew exactly what I wanted to make for the little guy, I just didn't have my sh*t together enough to actually start sewing. Sorry Kate. Sorry Coleman. 

Last weekend, I had a reunion with a group of my first college friends in New York City. It was the first time I'd seen Kate and knew I could NOT, not give her a baby gift when I finally saw her in person. 

For baby Coleman's quilt, I went with cozy flannel. So simple, and cute!

I also made Coleman two bibs. Both have velcro closures along the bottom sides, so that Kate can wipe down the bib when food easy?! (Note to Self: I need to make some of these for my Cole!)

I also made Coleman this bib, I'd seen a bib on Pinterest with this saying and absolutely LOVED it. I also made one of these for my nephew's Christmas gift. Here you can see the velcro open....

I used iron-on vinyl to make the bib wipeable. I made a stencil using freezer paper and my Silhouette machine. Unfortunately, some ink did bleed, but it still looked okay. In the future I might use my embroidery sewing machine for projects like this...oh, the possibilities.

Hopefully Coleman will love this cozy quilt until it's just a thread....
