Flamingo Baby Bib Set

By Casey Corey

Flamingo Baby Bib Set
What’s pink, blue, and cute all over? Flamingo baby bib set! This limited edition handmade baby bib set just launched. It’s tropical and has all the right feels for summer. If you live in a warm climate like Miami, then it’s summer basically year round. Except for January when we all pull out our sweaters and boots. But if you live in a colder climate, it might be nice to have some tropical looks year round. Something to remind you of warmer days. 

It took me two babies to realize how many things you can use baby bibs for. When I had Alice, I pretty much exclusively used bibs for feeding at meal times (aka 6 months- 1 year). At some point, when her drool rash was getting hard to manage under her neck, I realized bibs could help protect her from the relentless faucet. By the time I had Dylan, a few more of my friends had their babies and I got to see all the ways they used baby bibs. A bib to wear while bottle feeding? Genius. A bib to catch spit up instead of holding a burp cloth underneath them at all times? Why didn’t I think of that? Oh yeah, I was in a sleep-deprived survival mode. I still haven’t mastered the art of cute baby bib storage. For now, they all perch on a hanger in Alice’s closet.

The best part about bibs from Casey Sheila Quilts is the longevity. Two babies later, and my original, handmade baby bibs are still in great condition. They’ve been soaked with unspeakable amounts of fluid and washed countless times. And yet, the snap closures still snap tight and the fabric hasn’t pilled or lost its luster. As with each of our bib sets, this limited edition set comes in the bandana bib or the long bib style. You get to choose either organic fleece or organic terry cloth for the back. Whatever choices you make, this bib set is sure to bring some warmth.

Baby Girl Floral Bibs

Baby Girl Floral Bibs

I often have a bit of fabric left over from making a custom baby quilt. Sometimes I accidentally order too much fabric or sometimes I can only order a set amount from the fabric company even though I only need a 1/3 of that fabric. When I have extra, I have a few options but by far my favorite is to share the fabric with all of you by making a bib set!

Enter the gorgeous Nina Bib Set. A handmade, floral bib set with three striking patterns: two Liberty of London fabrics and a succulent fabric found on Spoonflower. A pink and green color scheme bring these three fabrics together. Pink plastic snaps make these hard for baby to rip off herself.

As always, these bibs come with the Organic Fleece or Organic Terry Cloth backing options. They also come in either the long or bandana styles, although just the bandana is pictured here.

Because this set came from extra fabric from a quilt, this is a very limited edition. Once they are sold out, they are gone forever. I really love making these bibs though. They just feel fun. Feminine and strong. Cute and sturdy. Everything you want from baby girl’s bibs. 

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention what a lovely companion these are to our other Liberty of London bib set- Les Fleur Babies Bib Set (from the 2020 Fall Bib Collection). This set is focused on a red and yellow color scheme. It was a planned set, so it’s not as limited as the Nina Bib Set. But, just like the Nina set, they come with the same backing and style options.

BABY HOLIDAY BIBS

By Casey Corey

BABY HOLIDAY BIBS

Are here! We have three new sets for the babies to sport during your holiday affairs.  Whether you’re staying home and keeping things small, or attending an outdoor, socially distanced gathering, baby is going to make a mess. Spit up, mashed sweet potatoes, drool… yep, we’ve got your baby covered. Our bibs are machine washable on the normal setting so don’t worry about the clean-up. Without further ado, here is the Beary Merry Babies Bib Set, Holi-Baby Bib Set, and the Challah Baby Bib Set. 

The Beary Merry Babies Bib Set was designed for our girly girls who still want to show the silly side of themselves this holiday season. The Merry Bib is certain to brighten up anyone’s day. Each set comes with three different bib styles with either an Organic Cotton Fleece or French Terry Cloth back.  The Fleece is softer and more lightweight, while the French Terry Cloth is more absorbent.  But both are organic cotton. 

The Holi-Baby Bib Set is a personal favorite. I just can’t get enough of those bears.  And that gold. I mean. The photographs don’t do it justice. It shimmers without leaving glitter everywhere. And it will still hold up in the washing machine. 

Our last, but certainly not least, is the Challah Babies Bib Set. They are every bit as soft as they are elegant and classy. The gold in those stripes also reflect a beautiful shimmer.  Each of these sets are available in either the bandana or long form. If your baby really excels at the spit up game or is feeding him or herself those sweet mashed potatoes, I recommend the long form. And then just throw it in the wash after mealtime.  Are you sensing a trend? Yeah, why make the holidays even harder. Everything baby-related should be easy to wash.

Baby Shower Gift Guide

By Casey Corey

Baby Shower Gift Guide

Your friend/acquaintance/co-worker/cousin/a person in your life is expecting a baby! How exciting! You get invited to the celebration of said baby. The date is approaching and now you begin to wonder about what’s an appropriate gift?! The registry is obviously helpful, but how excited can you get about giving diaper cream? I usually like to do a mix of both registry gifts and non-registry gifts. Some bottles, formula, and bibs? Feeding time is taken care of! A sound machine and quilted pillow? Newborn naps in the nursery, done! A play gym and quilt? Tummy time! Just need the baby… Here are some ideas from Casey Sheila Quilts:

Option A: Baby Bib Sets

Baby Boy:

Check out the Wild Things Babies Bib Set because let’s be honest, most babies are a bit of wild thing. Or the classic Orange Dino Babies Bib Set goes with any theme. The dinos and orange bones are as soft as they are cute. 

Baby Girl

You can’t go wrong with the Sugar Babies Bib Set. Babies are so sweet and wearing a sweet, ice cream bib will help remind the parents as they try to contain the baby spit up. Or the classy Les Fleurs Babies Bib Set is always such an elegant set. 

Team Green:

Gender reveal isn’t happening until birth? We’ve got you covered.  Apple Bottom Babies Bib Set is literal team green. And the classic mint in the Donut & Sprinkles Babies Bib Set makes it one of our most popular sets for a reason.

Option B: Quilted Pillow Covers

If you wanted to make more of a statement, then check out our Quilted Pillow Covers.  We’e got three designs in the Wild Things Set that are pretty universal.  The Wild Rumpus Quilted Pillow Cover fits a coastal themed nursery while the King of All Wild Things Pillow Cover fits a “woods-y” themed nursery.  Going fully custom is, of course, always an option.

Option C: Baby Quilts

The creme de la creme- a handmade, modern baby quilt.  Looking for a modern baby girl quilt? Mischief of One Kind and Another is one of my favorites. Don’t forget to check out the fun backing, too. And just like the quilted pillow covers, going fully custom is an option. Fill out our Questionnaire, and we can start planning the perfect gift.

Option D: Gift Cards

All that said, if buying a gift is too overwhelming (I get it!), gift cards are really a perfectly appropriate gift, too.

Thank you for being here. We are so honored to be part of this momentous time.

Best Baby Bibs (Fall 2020 Edition)

By Casey Corey

Best Baby Bibs (Fall 2020 Edition)

They’re here! Four new sets of bibs to celebrate Fall and bid farewell to Summer 2020: Les Fleurs Babies, Doughnut and Sprinkle Babies, Purple Dino Babies, and the Orange Dino Babies (we couldn’t decide if we should go with the orange or purples to coordinate with the dinosaur fabric, so we made both!).

les fleurs babies bib set blog image

Les Fleurs Babies Bib Set rocks a deep red floral pattern.  The Casey Sheila Quilts modern bib line was missing that rich red and we think this one definitely fills that void.  The florals are accompanied by a vibrant yellow with speckles and a deep, solid red.  Like all of our bibs, these beauties are finished with a double stitch seam on top. The double stitch helps the bibs lay flat and ensure their longevity. No grown up has time to be hand washing bibs. Feel comfortable throwing these bibs in the regular machine wash cycle on repeat; they will last.

We are not responsible for any extra doughnut consumption as a result of owning the Donut & Sprinkle Babies Bib Set. But seriously, the pink doughnuts on the mint green background is a sweet color palette that called for a mint green solid bib to match. We like to include a solid color bib in each set because sometimes you want a bib that doesn’t steal the show. We understand that baby’s outfit is going to be on point somedays, but baby is still going to need a bib to handle all that drool, spit up, and food droppings.  The solids will handle that while not distracting from the cute clothes you worked so hard on wrestling over those flailing arms and legs. 

The Orange Dino Babies Bib Set can double as a Halloween bib set.  The orange patterned fabric reminds us of dinosaur bones and of course needed a bright solid orange to complete the set.  And because we couldn’t decide between orange and purple….

Our last set in this release is the Purple Dino Babies Bib Set. The name has us wanting to rewatch Land Before Time.  Like all of our bib sets, these are available with either a Cotton Fleece or a French Terry Cloth backing. The Fleece is a softer backing for those babes with sensitive skin while the French Terry Cloth is more absorbent.

 

We hope you and your babes love these bibs as much as we love making them.
