Baby Bibblas

It is always great when customers send in examples of their work and it just reinforces that there is a huge range of patchwork and quilting projects that people can make. For example Nik is working a huge King size quilt at the moment after being inspired on a Pfaff sewing machine training day (I hope to show some in-progress shots next week). At the other end of the spectrum Tracy Clarke has sent in photos of her Bibblas. Little bibs for your little dribbla!
Above you can see some examples made from Moda fabrics, and below is a Bibbla designed to get them interested in fruit from an early age. Actually my wee man loves Raspberries and we have just planted some canes on our new allotment to help feed his craving. 

 
Tracy has set up Painted Ghost to make Bibbla's, a dribble bib that was developed after Tracy Clarke’s son was teething so much changing clothes was becoming a chore! Not happy with the current selection and the high price, Tracy developed a number of prototypes before settling on a unique design. Painted Ghost also makes a variety of accessories such as Mobile phone holders, bags and blankets for babies too!
Painted Ghost uses a variety of fabrics, from kitsch and vintage inspired to fab and funky! You can see and buy from Tracy's latest range by going to her store on kiddiebase.

We would love to feature projects by other customers so please email us with any photos and text describing your work. mailorder@cottonpatch.co.uk
