Pink Bib O Love
This is my first post! Attending a baby shower today and although the invitation says "This shower is about celebration, not presents" I decided to make a little Bib O Love for the babe to be because she is the first girl, with two older brothers. I used Conshohocken Softball cotton and the bib is as soft as can be.
I also have a question...I have started a miter-square twin-sized blanket for my daughter's bed (she actually still sleeps in a crib (she's 18 mos) but I'm planning ahead! I'm planning to line it in cotton flannel and then be able to use it as a duvet in the winter and put a down comforter in the pocket between the blanket and the flannel. Anyway, my question: I'm using a mixture of Cotton-Ease, Cotton Rich and All Seasons Cotton (gauge works well) but I am concerned about how this will wear. Will it wash well...or pill? Obviously I'd like it to hold up for, well, years and years.
