Baby (big boy) bibs

I have accomplished a little bit this week on my days off. I decided I wanted to make some big boy bibs for Avery. I hope his parents don't think the fabric is too feminine for him.... I bought the frogs and the puppy dogs, but the other two came from my "stash". These were so easy to make and now I want to find some cute little boy fabric and make a few more for him.
They show up a little better against my bathroom rugs that are hanging out to dry. (ok, I admit it... they've been drying for days!!!) And yes, my flower beds need mulch badly!!!
I also made Avery a little "tag" blanket, as he likes to fiddle with fabric when he is going to sleep. He usually winds the fabric of whoever is rocking him's shirt around his thumb, and sucks it to go to sleep. He really likes the little tags on his soft toys, so I took some leftover flannel, some cute ribbon, and made him a tag blanket. I don't have any idea if he'll even like it, but if he does, I'll post a pic. of him using it.
*I've completed the yo yo spread. I need to find a background fabric to frame it on... I tried a natural colored linen which did not show up well. I think black or dark brown is what I'm going to look for... I have decided not to paint the frame black, after all.... I think the brown tone looks better with my new recliners. (they are brown.... pleather) :o)

I love the way they turned out and I don't think they are too girlie at all. He will get lots of use out of them. Toddlers need bibs! I bet he loves the taggie blankie too. :o)
