The Sublime Stitching Baby Bib Embroidery Kit

Has Jenny Hart ever made an un-cute thing in her life? Not that I have seen. Combine her super duper cuteness with baby bibs and it’s the best two-some since peanut butter and jelly. As a new mom and someone with a serious embroidery addiction I was pleased as punch to receive The Sublime Stitching Baby Bib Embroidery Kit: Utterly Adorable Projects, Plus All the Tools & Techniques from Chronicle Books.

The kit comes with a handy dandy little booklet, 2 bibs, needle, floss and 6 reusable Sublime Stitching patterns. Look for anthropomorphic utensils, strained veggie splatters, rockets and more. I could not wait to get to stitching on my bibs, especially since Tallulah has become especially drooly as of late.

First up the snail pattern. I have used this pattern again and again thanks to the adorable scalloped border. I scanned it in my computer blew it up and using Sublime Stitching tracing paper have used it as a border on two different onesies. I of course used the pattern the way it was intended as well. Well not exactly the way it was intended. I used fabric to spice my bib up a bit. New and vintage scraps, plus a big blue rose from a hanky. The original design is still there, just now my bib is a little different from the rest. Tallulah seems to really enjoy it thus far. Oh and here are the onesies I made using the scalloped border and some vintage tablecloths that were already embroidered!

Onward to bib number 2!

I again went appliqué crazy on bib number 2. The Baby Bib Embroidery Kit comes with an adorable cup and spoon pattern for those hungry little babies. Using fabric and rickrack I tried to emulate a placemat on my bib. In the center I appliquéd what is supposed to be a plate (please don’t judge my blanket stitch) and we have a smiling cup of milk on one side and a perky spoon on the other. Oh and as an aside I will never use metallic floss again for as long as I live. I don’t know what is more frustrating metallic floss or French Knots.

Also included in the Sublime Stitching Baby Bib Kit is an adorable mama and baby owl pattern. I have used this pattern twice, both times on clothing for T-Boz. The yellow shirt was sent off to my mother and her embroidery machine after I hand embroidered the pair of owls on the pink heart. She added the purple edge and to give it that little something extra a nod to Telly Savalas with the “Whoooo loves ya Baby?”. I also used the baby owl on a little T-shirt.

I have a thing for fruit with faces. Take a looksie at my kitchen to see a bit of my collection. That being the case I was excited to see a pattern in the kit featuring a pear, strawberry and orange all smiling back at me. I again did this design as an appliqué on a cute little pink T-shirt that Tallulah’s Great Grandmother had sent her. Can’t wait for Grandma to see the T-shirts new face lift.

Clearly The Sublime Stitching Baby Bib Embroidery kit can be used for a lot more than just baby bibs. If you are a mom like me desperately trying to customize your kids clothes this kit has the goods to get you started. It’s a double whammy you can use the embroidered bibs to keep food off your kiddos embroidered clothing.

    Noooooo! I've never failed at teaching the French Knot! It's my specialty! (using Jenny's technique) Let's get together for a do-over. The French Knot is too much fun not to master. It's my fave – right up there with the Lazy Daisy.

    Love seeing all your fun stitchy stuff! woohoo! 🙂
