Cooking With Cricut Giving Thanks Blog Hop

Hi Everybody!
Welcome to Crazy About Cricut and the "Giving Thanks" Blog Hop! If you've come from visiting Larelyn at, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to hop along with us, you can go to and start at the beginning.

Today’s hop is all about Thanksgiving decorations – for your home and table.  Since we have a million kids at our house for Thanksgiving (ok, only 6, but 4 of them are mine!), I thought a baby bib would be an essential, must have item at our table!  My mom was kind enough to help me work the sewing machine, since I'm still learning :) 

*I used the Baby Steps Cricut cartridge to help me with the design of the bib.
*I cut out a bib shadow, and then traced the outline on the material with chalk.

*Isn't this fabric too cute?!?!

 *I found this really cute corderoy fabric to use on the other side.

*This bib will look so cute on my baby boy!

I had some help with the button, but overall this project wasn't too bad for one of the few sewing projects I've made.  I hope you all liked it!
