personalized bibs

We loved these adorable bibs with stamped sayings made by Holly Keller of Chez Beeper Bebe. We found them on her Flickr with her own explanation of their cuteness:

"Made these in an evening for a friend's baby shower. The front is made with Robert Kaufman Kitchen Kitsch line of fabrics and the back is made from reclaimed bath towels. The words were a last-minute thought, stamped on muslin with permanent fabric ink. I made these using a pattern from Amy Karol's delightful book, Bend the Rules Sewing."

Permanent fabric ink can be stamped with any stamp image and then washed. A great choice is VersaCraft brand pads (formerly Fabrico) by Tsukineko, a very respectable stamping ink company.

I am dying over all her fabric choices! This woman is one of those gifted people who can create things straight out of her imagination. Besides making bibs for her friends in her spare time, she sells the most adorable plushies made completely from reclaimed materials. They each have their own little personalities. Check them out in her Beeper Bebe Etsy store!

Thanks for sharing with us, Holly!
