Valentine Special!

Valentines Day ♥

There's nothing worse for me than going out for dinner on Valentines Day. We tried it once or twice (in the early days) and it was awful. Being squeezed in to a restaurant with a load of couples who probably only go out together once a year & also probably don't even like each other very much, who find themselves staring at each other in silence over a steak & plate of calamari. It's depressing and so unspecial.
Maybe I'm just cynical?!

I'm happy with some flowers, any day actually, so on Valentines is also fine & I'd be happy to receive a bunch (just not over-priced roses). Other than that a yummy meal at home with Warren is enough for me.

Since Lula arrived in our lives, Feb 14th has actually been a lot more fun & easy to join in with. It's a nice opportunity to make heart things, theme a picnic with red & pink cakes, and decorate stuff for her.

And this year I decided to spread the love to some of the other gorgeous little people we know.

I love a theme
I love hearts
I love sewing stuff
I love red
Valentine pressies are fun!

For the little people

Happy Valentines Week!

Valentine Inspired Baby Bibs

I'm so glad that  I Want That introduced me to the wonderful girls @ Zana.

Not only do I now have 2 gorgeous new cushions living on our couch & a fabulous b&w Swiss square pouch, but after visiting their studio in Woodstock I am totally inspired by their gorgeous fabrics.

I immediately wanted to make some Valentine baby bibs as gifts for some of the little people I know ♥

I chose the B&W triangle print and Yellow & White chevron for these pressies (but was also tempted my the mint green chevron too....)

Such gorgeous graphic screen printed fabrics

I drew a bib shaped template*

Cut the bib backing out of white cotton drill fabric

Cut the same bib shape out of the Zana fabric

Sew them together, turn to the right side, iron, top stitch & add a cute felt heart & simple poppers

I love this B&W version too 

For a little boy called Nico that I know!
* If you want a copy of the bib template let me know!

* Sweet little rain-catcher

* This is too funny - fashion disasters from this years Met

Cats with your coffee & croissant? I'm not convinced!
