Rock-A-Bye Bundle by Giggles & Beans

Friday, August 15, 2014

Good morning you guys! Today we have a new FREE release by So Tweet Patterns from Shelly over at Giggles & Beans. This is also her first pattern, and it's a bundle of must have baby accessories! Did I mention that you can snag it for free? How cool is that! The bundle includes a contoured burp cloth, two sizes of bibs and a pair of strap covers. Go show some love on her site and check out the other ladies in the blog tour!

The bundle has a focus on sewing with "minky" fabric (the soft dotted side) which was something I hadn't sewn with before. Since I am sewing my stash and not buying any more fabric for the remainder of the year, I was able to reuse one of Madison's baby blankets that I hadn't used in years. I think it came in super handy! The minky sewed up real nice to my surprise too.   

I didn't have enough minky to make the burp cloth and bib solid, so I was able to use some flannel I had just hanging in my stash. Shelly also suggests using Velcro for the straps and bib, but I too did not have any of that on hand, and my KAM snaps came to save the day. It was the first time using them (I'm not going to tell you how long that had been sitting in my drawer....) and I LOVE them! Why have I avoided this genius tool for so long?!?!? I cannot wait to make some onesies for Cora now :)

This was such a fun little bundle to sew! Thank you Shelly for having me on the tour! If you have a little one on the way or a friend who is expecting, the Rock-A-Bye bundle will make a great gift. I will be back on Tuesday to show you all Cora's 7 month outfit. Until then, have a blessed and safe weekend!
