FREE Baby Bib Set Pattern // The Rock-a-bye Bundle by Giggles & Beans

Happy Friday friends! I have an exciting post for you today – a FREE baby pattern bundle from another Pattern Workshop friend, Shelly Morgan of Giggles and Beans!! Keep on reading to get all the details and your FREE download!

Hi Everyone!  I can’t believe that it is finally done, but it is!  I am launching my first pattern and it is FREE!  Yes, FREE!  It is called the Rock-a-bye Bundle  and it is a beginner sewing pattern set that includes two different size bib patterns, a contoured burp cloth pattern, and a pattern for car seat strap covers.   I know that you can find free bib patterns/tutorials  all over the internet, but there are a few things that make this pattern special.  The first is that I have focused on how to sew this fabric using  soft and absorbent Cuddle Minky, although you can use any fabric.  The second and more exciting part is that the pattern is packaged just like a REAL pattern that you would pay for.

All the details are there: easy to understand illustrations, in depth instructions, fabric requirements, all in an easy to download PDF.    This is all thanks to Lauren Dahl over at Pattern Workshop for giving me the tools that I needed to accomplish the many creations that had been forming in my head.   I had a great time putting this together and learned so much in the process.  I can’t wait to show you my next pattern that I am working on.  But while you wait go on over and check out my new website for my newly formed pattern company So Tweet Patterns!

Beginner (Baby) Quilt and Ultimate Bib

Happy Monday! This past weekend I attended my cousin’s baby shower. Josh & Natalie are having their first bambino, a boy they’re naming Riley! I love to give handmade gifts, so when their registry revealed a monkey nursery theme, I was super excited to get shopping. I just got my Kam Snaps plier kit and was anxious to try it out, so I knew for sure I would be making the Ultimate Catch-All Bib, a free pattern from Peek A Boo Pattern Shop!

I took Amy’s recommendation and and ordered from Laminates on Etsy. She has an amazing selection of laminated cotton and this Monkey print perfectly fit the theme. The Ultimate Catch-All Bib is great because it opens flat to wipe clean, but snaps up to catch all the food that doesn’t quite make it into baby’s mouth.

My son and I had a great time figuring out the Kam Snaps (it’s not hard). Mostly we just giggled at how quickly they went in and how cool it was that they worked! Here’s a picture from the back showing the one side snapped and the other side open. I had a bib similar to this one when my kids were bib-wearing age. It was hands-down our favorite bib. I hope Josh & Natalie get great use out of it!

The same day I ordered from Laminates, I also found a cotton fat quarter of the same monkey print! Wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it, but gathered I could figure that out later. Well after a trip to the local store to match fabrics, I came home with the goodies to make a Beginner’s Quilt!

Instructions for making this quilt can be found here. I love how quickly it comes together, but also like the size. It measures 45″ x 60″ so it will last for as long as Riley still loves it (assuming he will).

Without question, I was in the mood for meandering, so I just stitched a big version of it all over. It’s not perfect, but I love how it turned out.

I put an alphabet flannel on the back for warmth and a soft feel. And quite possibly the smallest quilt label ever.

This week is a busy week, but I hope to work on my Peek A Boo Pattern Shop Swap outfits (Here’s the post from last year’s swap). This year, I’ll be sewing for a boy and girl in Hawaii and she’s sewing for my two! Can’t wait to see how everything turns out and will be sure to share!
