Animal Farm

My cousin, and his SO, are having a baby. While I couldn't make the baby shower, I did want to send a gift.

I found great (FREE!) patterns on the Lion Brand website for animal baby bibs. I had to make them.

All patterns can be found on Lion Brand website.

These were fun to make. I loved watching them come together. I love all of these, though the frog's grin holds a very special place in my heart. My favorite is the owl. It's so adorable!

Each was made with Cotton Ease which is so soft. Cotton tends to split when I'm working with it. The Cotton Ease didn't do that. Plus it shouldn't shrink b/c it's not 100% cotton. I'll have to use this yarn more often!

So, right after I finished this gift I saw a comment on another blog (I can't remember which one) and that commenter said that while crochet bibs are cute, they're very impractical. I guess I get that, but I wish I saw it after the shower. I spent a week thinking I've given an inappropriate gift. What do you think?
