I've been invited to a baby shower in June. It's for the daughter of a lady that I am friends with. I've only met her daughter once or twice and I won't be going to the shower (you know that I'm a hermit, plus it's in Phila.) but I want to send along a present, because it's my friend's first grandchild.
So I've been seeking out some handmade baby items on etsy. This morning I came across Colby Lane Designs . They make baby bibs with chenille backing, in over 200 designs.
They have a bunch of great retro prints that are really cool, plus some unusual geekery prints, dots, stripes, animals, food etc.
An example of a few designs I'm showing here are Hula girls, sock monkeys, paper dolls, comic strip, faces, vintage Valentines and retro kids on a rollercoaster.
Really cute, only $8.00 each, low shipping cost ($2.75 for 3 bibs)
If you need some cool bibs for your baby, or for a gift, go check out Colby Lane Designs .
Also, the daughter is using the Christening dress that my friend made from her wedding gown. She made it for her children's Christenings, now her first grandchild will wear it too. I made a few repairs on the gown for her so that she could get it cleaned. I was glad to be able to help her with such a special item.
