Two sets of friends recently welcomed some lovely additions to their families, so the boy and I set out to meet them both.

One friend asked me in advance if I could make her some bandanna bibs for the little person she had just made.

I don’t usually make baby gear, but I couldn’t believe how freakin’ easy these were:

Mama even let her little one model for me.

I was able to throw 6 together over the course of two short evenings and all the material was easy to work with.

Plus I ended up with one happy customer:
