|I love wrapping presents!|
Yes, it's another owl bib.
(Lion Brand pattern #90157AD)
This one is welcoming a darling new arrival
–a beautiful baby boy.
I do like these Lion Brand bib patterns (obviously, since this is the third owl bib so far!)
More details about this and other bibs I have made can be found in a previous post "Not So Secret Baby Items".
Here is a photo of the bib on the blocking board so you can get an idea of the measurements.
The grid is in inches.
Our new arrival is such an adorable little man!
I plan to make something a little bigger than a bib for him very soon, but the bib was all I could manage for the moment.
This cute little noodle box is a little memento and 'Thank You' gift which came with a sweet message from a beautiful mum:
Hubby, baby & myself are in love with that owl bib.
It’s actually one of the best gifts I’ve received so far.
It is lovely to receive appreciation for one's efforts but that is not why I love wrapping presents.
It's being able to give a unique personalised gift full of love and care to make someone feel special. It's the enjoyment of watching the excitement and delight as a gift is opened.
Yes, I love wrapping presents
but I think I love the unwrapping even more!
