May fo Me Day #3 Babies R Us


I so kid you not Jorge finished up with May for Me at about 4pm and we had a quick dinner that was just your basic American Franks. And look - this is just too classic even for Jorge!!

So today's theme for Jorge was Bib's.. (now you get the whole picture above)!! Very easy project but still one Jorge has never done and so here is what he did...

He found the pattern out and instead of printing it out he took his ruler out and did his measurements and then drew it out. He used my Tupperware ( ) container to do the inside circle and off he went to start his Day #3 project.

Today he really didn't have a lot of room to work with because I had all of my custom orders I was packing up and getting ready to ship. So thankfully bibs don't require a whole lot of room as you can see.

We really need to get inventory in our Christmas store really bad and so Jorge decided to use up our Christmas fabric. and so now we'll have these super cute bibs to put up for sale.

I should of gotten closer but if you click the picture you can count all the pins - I think he's pin crazy but what do I know about sewing - NOT MUCH... But I do know how to sew!! I would rather knit/crochet and leave the machine for him!!

I really - really like this fabric - super cute and hope it sells... By the second bib he was just moving along a lot quicker. He says tomorrow even though it's my May for Me he's going to sew up a bunch more for our main store

And here you go... Now we sure need to make an Adult size one just for Jorge!!

** TIP ** 

Get one of these if you don't already have one.
Jorge uses this every time he sews
 - this is Rotary Blade Sharpener which he bought his at for under $20.00
