I wanted to make a plush question block as a baby gift for a friend who’s a Super Mario fan.
My son didn’t have enough toys for pretend play, but when I looked around the internet I couldn’t find any food printables that I liked. So I designed my own.
Reopening the home sweatshop after a six-month hiatus. I had put away the sewing machine in order to (try to) organize our apartment, and I’ve been too busy with work to design any new fabric for Spoonflower. However, since a friend has just had a baby, and most of my bibs have sold out at Merrily, Merrily, it’s time to dust off the machine and start production again.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year…Movember, that is. I always seem to craft more this time than I do for Christmas, as I come up with new ideas for things to sell during fundraising at the office. Last year it was plush mustache keychains, the year before, ornaments. This year I designed my Hipster Animals collection through Spoonflower and made change purses.
I like this bib pattern from Chickpea Sewing Studio a lot. It just fits right. I’ve made a few as gifts, and when Dollarama recalled their vinyl-backed bibs earlier this year, I tossed all of Gigantor’s vinyl-backed bibs that had been made in China and made a huge batch of these instead using old towels.
