Well hi welcome to my little blog. Just my little corner of craftiness, sewing, and refashioning. I am also a newly gluten free eater so you have a little bit of recipes mixed in here.

Iron Craft #27 Stars and Stripes

This week's iron craft challenge was Stars and Stripes. Now we could either be patriotic or make something with stars or stripes. Since I am in the process of trying to finish baby shower gifts, I decided to make something out of stripes... Cupcake baby bibs!

Here is how I did it! First I tried to first draw my own but then I thought maybe someone has a free pattern online. Turns out someone does! WAhoo! I found the patttern on Chica and Jo here

They did the pattern with felt but I am going to try and sew it... wish me luck!

First I printed it out. But....
I was missing the bottom. I do not know what happened! so I free handed the bottom.

I first ironed interface to my fabric b/c it was too thin. Additionally I ironed stabilizer you will see why. I cut out the upper part of the bib.

Then I decided I wanted to make sprinkles using the decorative stitches on my new sewing machine. I accidentally used the wrong foot on my sewing machine so they came out more like scrunched circles but they worked.

Then I cleaned up the strings and cut away the rest of the bib.

pretty :)

Next I backed the bibs with the appropriate material.

For the stripes part of the project, I used this striped fabric material I had in my stash. This was going to be the cupcake holder. Since I used bright colors for my sprinkles they matched nicely.

I attached with glue. I could not think of any other way to connect with out seeing the stitches. So I opted for glue. Then I made the cherry and ironed it on (see the first picture!)

Yay for being able to knock 2 birds out with one stone! Irong Craft and baby shower gift! I have a bunch more baby shower gifts that I am finishing up but can't post for another 2 weeks. :( Liz may see them! As you can see I made a blue one for Joey her other baby so now they match!

Thanks for reading!!
