I finally finished making the bib necklace I'm sending my mum for Mother's Day last night. I started thinking about this over a week ago and had made a practice necklace so that I could iron out any problems before making my mum's. Of course I wanted Mum's to be perfect! :)
The only change I made was to alter the position of the ribbons to secure the bib around the neck...hope they work nicely for Mum!

I wanted to make Mum's necklace in black, as I thought it would be more adaptable. It took over a week to hunt down black felt - both Spotlight AND The Warehouse were out of stock last week, but I finally tracked some down this Sunday...which meant I had to make the necklace ASAP so that I could get it in the post and winging its way to Wales! It probably won't make it in time for Sunday, but it's better late than never....
|I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out - lots of sewing involved!|
|Wrapped nicely too, even if I DO say so myself! ;)|
Hope she likes it!!
