D loves to be artsy AND craftsy and has grown out of her art smock, so I made her a new one. Isn't it cute? I LOVE this green apple oilcloth- sewing with it was MUCH easier than the laminated cotton. I must have been doing something wrong M's bib, hopefully I can figure it out. I cut the apron pretty generous so that she'll be able to use for years. I have more than half a yard left of the oilcloth, so I'm dreaming up some other fun projects. Any suggestions?

Surprise! I made something! This stage of life with the kids is making it nearly impossible to spend time crafting, hence the lack of posting as of late. I did manage this cute bib for M out of necessity- all my messy food bibs are pink. I used a laminated cotton so it wipes off easily after feeding. Even after doing some research online I still had a difficult time sewing with the fabric. Anyone have any pointers? I still have some fabric left and am hoping to make a couple more bibs, then I am moving on to art smocks made from oilcloth.
