Meals at Grandma's House

When I was a little tike 
meals at Grandma's house
 meant getting out the Sears catalogs and stacking them on a chair to make me high enough to sit at the table.
 It also meant
tying a dish cloth around my neck to keep dribbles off my dress.

I'm sure there are a lot of you out there with similar memories. 
With this in mind, I decided on a little gift for a friend who became a grandma (again) recently. 
Not a high chair, but a couple of snazzy bibs.

He can keep his little britches clean when he eats a meal at his sweet grandma's house and she won't have to tie a bandanna around his neck.  These bibs have Velcro for fast dressing and undressing.

I purchased the pattern at my LQS.  I changed it a little so it worked for a little cowboy and used fabric out of my stash of western fabrics.  (I always love to buy those...wink)

Tied with a ribbon and on it's way.
The little guy won't need these for awhile, but they are ready when needed.

That's it folks.  That is all the sewing I have accomplished this week.  
Have a great weekend!

We used the big soup pot for a riser for kids to sit on at the table when I was young - something I did/do now when I have a need for a taller seat!! Good memories - love the bibs!!

don't remember sitting on the catalogs but sure do remember the tea towel around the neck for a bib. Those are adorable little bibs for your friend.

At least you have sewed and have thoughtfully gifted which will put a smile on your friend's face. What cute bibs - I did not know about cowboy fabric ... Yeehah!

Those are really sweet bibs! I'm at the other end of the age spectrum and think maybe I need some fancy grown up bibs for myself. ;) Really cute!
