On the cutting room floor

This week I'm finishing up my latest phase of ink blot design
Ink blot baby bibs.
Come on, you knew I couldn't stop at Onesies and T-shirts!

I decided on super soft white jersey knit for the front, since the fabric paint I use works beautifully on this material, backed with absorbent white terrycloth. I've got to pin the heck out of these to prevent fabric shifting.

Sewing tip: Jersey can be tricky to sew on anyway since it can be stretchy, but putting it together with terrycloth, am I crazy? No, (well, not entirely)
I just pin, pin, pin, and sew very s  l  o  w  l  y with my trusted walking foot.

And always remember to use a ballpoint needle to prevent poking permanent holes through your knit fabric!

I just can't get enough of this {Wearable Psychology}! I'll show you pictures of the finished bibs once I'm done.

I'm just about finished with the turquoise Ink Blot Onesie for my coming-this-summer-nephew, along with a cute little non-ink blot (gasp!) somepin' somepin' for my darling soon-to-be 2 year old niece. Can't reveal and spoil the surprises, but I'll be sure to share them a little later!

Happy Monday!
