quick post on something I whipped up for baby wesley!

one of the oldest fabrics in my stash is this whale laminated oilcloth I bought back in cambridge at gather here in 2012. having never sewn with oilcloth before I was looking for an easier pattern that would provide lots of instruction and up my odds of a successful result.

this publication has yielded some real gems including three owl backpacks (here and here) and several drawstring bags, including this one. so i decided to try my hand at this fabric with their messy kid bib.

i pulled colors from the whales, using a navy binding and orange cotton for the backing. (which is where i put in my label).

the curved bias binding really took patience, but I eventually got it.
