the talented and inspiring candace of sparkle power! asked me to write a guest post for her while she and her family take some time to welcome a new baby boy into their lives, and my post is up on her blog TODAY!
i decided to go for it on my first ever guest post and do my first ever tutorial, too. i share some boyish appliqué templates and my go-to bib pattern, and show you how to make a simple appliqué bib like you may have seen here or here. if your little one isn’t in need of bibs, you can use the appliqué designs to liven up a boy (or girl!) item that needs a little punch.

yay!! congratulations on the guest post, it’s fabulous!!!
What a great tutorial, are you sure it’s your first? I’m especially smitten with the paper plane bib, very clever idea!
why thank you! yep, definitely my first tutorial, it really made me appreciate bloggers that do them all the time. hardest part was keeping my workspace clean enough to photograph! 🙂
So adorable. You are awesome! Thanks so much for writing such a great guest post. 🙂
thank YOU for inviting me, and i hope you’re loving life with a new little guy…he sure is a cutie!
great tutorial! love the fox bib. well done!
Hi Kristin, I read your blog now for several months, and I love it! Thanks for the bib tutorial, my first little nephew is born just a week ago and I so I know for whom to make the ‘boyish bibs’. But I love them for my own little girl as well. If you’re curious, check my blog – part of it is in English 😉 http://trivialthingsbyjo.wordpress.com
