A Bunch of Bibs

by Nancy

My goal for 2010 is to “try, try again” to sell quilts and related items for babies and toddlers. To that end, I am working at increasing the number of small items in my portfolio, such as bibs, placemats, pillowcases, and crochet food and animals. I was at JoAnn’s over New Year’s weekend when the clearance fabrics were an extra 50% off, and I found a cute construction print for just $1.50 a yard. Lee had recently mentioned to me that the Noah’s Ark bib I had made for Gabe was the only one that he couldn’t pull off (due to the ties instead of velcro or snaps) and that fit him well, so it seemed like a great opportunity to make a new bib or two for Gabe and some others for eventual sale. I hope to get my portfolio in order and then get up the courage to ask the owner of a high-end children’s boutique downtown if she would be interested in selling any of my items. I also hope to take part in my town’s hand-made market, but that is not until next November. I’m considering etsy as well.

Anyway, here are the bibs.

    Nancy, I am so glad that you are going to keep trying to launch Nancy’s Quilts for Kids. I think a “high end” store is the place to go, and I agree that having small items in your “potfolio” is a good idea. I love the bibs! What is the size of the small ones? We have a new baby across the street,and I need a quick and easy gift.

    The small ones are made from an 8″ square, and the large ones are from a 12″ square. Want to buy one? 🙂 I’ve made quite a few more and just need to get my picture taking caught up with my sewing!
