I found the flannel in a Hobby Lobby in Alabama. I bought it without any idea of what to do with it and then found out that my sister is having a girl which brought to mind this. The back of the bibs is diaper cloth. I love diaper cloth for everything other than being a diaper because it is so absorbent. Love the stuff.
I am working on now the jacket. It is coming along quite nicely. I don't know if it will fit over my flabby belly. Since I still have baby belly that hasn't disappeared yet it is affecting the fit of the garment around my hips.
It isn't finished, but made good progress for today. Because it is a prequilted fabric I am using french seams. A lot bulkier than planned but at least the batting isn't showing. It is very warm whenever I try it on.
The pictures don't show the color of the purple as well as the actual color. It is way to gray in the pictures. I can't wait to finish it. Next is attaching the sleeves, adding the collar, buttons or closure of some sort, then binding around the edges. And maybe a pocket. I haven't decided yet.
