Maybe that's why this fabric resonates with me:
Again, another delightful Heather Ross fabric - Goldfish in Bags. They are even named. But one name stood out to me - Henry.
To make a very long story short, a neighbour (with a house full of cute little girls) just gave birth to a long-awaited boy. She had mentioned that it was a tradition for her babies to have a bib with their name on it, but she wasn't able to find one with the expected baby's name. He was going to be named Henry.
I hadn't thought about this fabric, but while reorganizing my fabric stash I noticed one of the fish named Henry. I knew I had to use this fabric for Henry, and I came up with this design:
A cheerful bib in blue.
The back is lined in yellow terrycloth to make it extra soft & absorbent.
Instead of snaps or velcro, I opted for this pretty, watery aqua button & sewed 2 buttonholes to make it adjustable as baby Henry gets bigger.
Cute fishies in mini hexies - on the dot background they have a bubble feel.
Now, it just needs to be wrapped up with love. Henry, you are sure to be a bundle of cuteness in your new goldfish bib!
Have a sweet Thursday!
