News: Long Baby Bibs

Holiday Baby Bib Sets Are Here!

By Casey Corey

The Holidays Are (Almost) Here! The Casey Sheila Quilts Holiday Baby Bib Sets Are Here! These modern baby bib sets are beary, merry, and bright. We brought back a few of the favorite sets from last year and added two brand new sets. We hope you love them as much as we do. Without further ado, we are pleased to introduce you to: Tropical Holiday Babies Bib Set, Lit Babies Bib Set, Challah Babies Bib Set, Holi-Babies Bib Set, and the Beary Merry Babies Bib Set.

Tropical Holiday Babies Bib Set

This set was inspired by my mom. I grew up listening to my mom fantasize about going to Aruba for the Holidays instead of organizing a 20+ person dinner for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Family was far more important to her than Aruba so we never actually went but it sure was fun to dream about. 

Lit Babies Bib Set

There is nothing cozier in this season than getting your tree decorated and ready for the holidays. Just add a sleeping baby, Christmas music, and a crackling fire. 

Challah Babies Bib Set

Inspired by the gorgeous blues in the Hannukah season, this set is one of our softest sets. Two of the bibs are made from a woven fabric and is sure to feel amazing on baby’s skin. 

Holi-Babies Bib Set

There’s no way to resist these polar bears. They spread cheer, light, and love. 

Beary Merry Babies Bib Set

The holiday collection would not be complete without a pink baby bib set, of course. Polar bears, gifts, and the sweetest checkered pattern checking all of the merry holiday boxes. 

Like all of our bibs, these sets are machine washable. They come in either the bandana or long styles. And they can be backed with bright white organic fleece or a natural colored organic terry cloth. Please send us an email at casey@caseysheilaquilts.com with any questions!

Wishing you and yours a Messy Christmas and a Happy New Bib. 

Xoxo, Casey

Books and Bibs: Halloween Edition

By Casey Corey

Spooky Season is upon us. To celebrate, we’ve paired some children’s halloween books with our modern baby bib sets. It’s like a book club but for our babies. That works, right? Some of the things I look for in children’s books before I commit to a a recommendation are: how is the plot? Will I mind reading this 50 times before Halloween? (Major bonus for humor). How’s the character development? Can my children relate? What’s the message? What kind of themes or lessons can my children pick up from reading it?

Using the above criteria, we settled on two children’s books and a third suggestion (more on that below). The first is Vampirina Ballerina by Anne Marie Pace. A strong female lead trying something new supported by her large family? It’s quirky and cute. And there’s pink on the cover so my four year old was immediately in love. We’ve read this one a number of times and I’m still not sick of it. We paired this lovely read with two Casey Sheila Quilts bib sets: Purple Dino Babies Bib Set and the Wild Things Baby Bib Set. 

Dinosaurs are always appropriate for spooky season. The purples in this set are rich and luxurious and will translate nicely into the winter. 

The black and golds in the Wild Things set are a weakness for me. I’m obsessed. And the crowns bib is a great option if your family is dressing up as royalty or as Max from Where the Wild Things Are for Halloween. My daughter is dressing up as a princess this year and she could not be more excited. We got my son a dragon costume and so far, he is petrified of it.

The second book, Bonaparte Falls Apart by Margery Cuyler, is a personal favorite. The main skeletal character is scared about surviving school when all of his limbs keep falling off. His friends relentlessly try to come up with solutions to help him. Children solving problems without adult intervention? Check. Friends being supportive and kind? Check, check. We paired this book with the Orange Dino Babies Bib Set and the Turtle Dude Babies Bib Set. 

The oranges in both sets fit in nicely with the spooky season orange color. And the orange solid color in both sets remains relevant for the rest of fall. *The solid orange bib in the Orange Dino Babies Bib Set is a reddish orange while the Turtle Dude Babies Bib Set has a bright orange solid.

And last but perhaps the most important, is the teal set for this Halloween’s Books and Bibs series. It’s not a children’s book, but it was a book I needed as a new mom to a small child with food allergies. Allergic Girl by Sloane Miller helped give me confidence that we could raise my daughter without food being a stressful trigger for her. Neither my husband nor I had any personal experience with food allergies, and we desperately needed guidance. I also loved Don’t Kiss the Birthday Girl by Sandra Beasley. She walked me through her life managing food allergies and made it easier to process how to keep my daughter safe without creating too much anxiety. 

 

The Teal Pumpkin Project was created to help raise food allergy awareness. By putting out a teal pumpkin at Halloween, you are letting families know you are giving out candy or toys that are safe from the top 8 allergens. So, we included the Pop Babies Bib Set and the Taco Babies Bib Set for this book suggestion. Unintentionally, they’re both food related sets. They were really chosen for the teal solid color bib in each set. 

If you have any questions or a recommendation for a children’s book about allergies, I’d love to hear them: casey@caseysheilaquilts.com. Wishing you and your families a very fun and safe Halloween.

2021 Bibs Are Here!

By Casey Corey

We certainly kept you waiting long enough, the new bibs for 2021 are now available! We’ve got a little bit a Spring, a little bit of Summer, and a little bit of Fall all in one release. Some baby girl bib sets, some baby boy bib sets, and some gender neutral baby bib sets. The bibs are available with Organic Fleece or Organic Terry Cloth backing. As always, the bibs are available in the Bandana or Long style. Without further ado, here are the seven new bib sets: 

 blue camping inspired baby bib set

1: Adventure Baby Bib Sets

 Obsessed with these little bears and polar bears exploring the grounds with their mommas. Paired with star constellations and navy blue fabric, this set will be there to keep up with you and your adventurous baby.

4: Turtle Dude Baby Bib Sets

Inspired by Florida’s marine life, these awesome dudes are ready to bring a smile wherever they go (And of course, catch the drool, spit up, and food). Checkered beach blanket and a solid orange bib are ready to accompany you and baby to the beach, or anywhere life takes you on a given day.

5: Sandy Baby Bib Sets

 Little sandpipers with bright yellows and pinks are meant to fill up the room with warmth and curiosity. When was the last time you got to just watch the sandpipers do their thing at the beach? Taking those 5 minutes for yourself to just sit and be present, it’s a wonderful gift to yourself. 

 walrus baby bib set

6: Toothy Baby Bib Sets

Playing with food and toothy walrus grins just go hand-in-hand. These guys are ready to catch baby’s first avocado or sweet potato (and every other food baby goes for!). 

 tacos and golden suns baby bib set

7: Taco Baby Bib Sets

Last but certainly not least, Taco Tuesday will never be the same. Tacos from the local taco truck on a golden summer night with baby in tow, what could be better?

We hope you love these sets as much as we do. If you have any questions about the materials or sizing, please send an email to casey@caseysheilaquilts.com.

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.

Summer Bib Sets

By Casey Corey

Summer Bib Sets

Summer bibs are here! 

Summer means sunshine, outdoor water adventures, sunscreen (lots of sunscreen), picnics, and icy cold beverages. We have just the bibs to catch those juicy watermelon drips. Or maybe just the teething drool (yes, teething yet again). We wanted these handmade baby bibs to be fun, playful, and delicious (just like your babe) so without further ado, we are pleased to introduce the…

baby bibs with gold rainbows, gold stripes, and gold stars

Golden Babies Bib Set

Gold rainbows, gold stripes, and gold stars. The golden trio. Just like all of our bib sets, the Golden Babies Bib Set is available in the Bandana or Long Form with either the Fleece or French Terry Cloth back. Although the bibs fit all babies from their newborn to toddler days, the Long Form comes with 2 snap closures so it can grow with your babe for longer. 

baby bibs with sloths, rainbow stripes, and greens

Lazy Babies Bib Set

Sloths?! Come on. Too cute. Anyone else have a lazy baby? No? Just my 10 month old baby who could definitely crawl but pretends like he can’t so I’ll pick him up and carry him everywhere? I didn’t think so ;) 

pink baby bibs with strawberries and dots
Strawbabies Bib Set

One of the iconic first foods to feed your babe… turns out that strawberries also make a great bib fabric, too. The set includes a solid pink and a sweet pink with white dots. All of the bibs come with a double stitch on top to increase durability and cuteness. The double stitching allows the bibs to hold their own with repeated machine washing, so they will be with you and your growing family for years to come.  

baby bibs with red and orange apples, greens, and green stripes
Apple Bottom Babies Bib Set

 

We’re a Honeycrisp apple family, but would take a Gala in a pinch. A green stripe bib and solid bright green bib round out this set. Sometimes your babe is in a really cute outfit, but can’t go the day without a bib (hi spit up, hi drool). We get it. That’s why there’s a solid colored bib in almost every set. The solid complements (instead of detracting from) those outfits you worked so hard to wrestle over those flailing arms and legs.  

baby bibs with colas and blues
And lastly, the Pop Babies Bib Set. 

 

Cherry flavored cola in a glass bottle on a modern baby quilt for that picnic? Yes, please. A fun teal colored bib and deep blue with white dots support the main attraction here. And yes, all of our other bibs are still available while quantities last. The bibs are made-to-order, but usually ship in 2-3 business days.  Thank you for sharing your babies with us: #caseysheilaquilts and @caseysheilaquilts.

Wild Things Collection

By Casey Corey

Wild Things Collection

“And now," cried Max, "let the wild rumpus start!”

Our first book-inspired line, the Wild Things, is here! Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are is full of adventure, imagination, mischief, frustrating parenting moments, love, and warmth. The Wild Things Collection includes a handmade bib set, three modern baby quilt designs, and coordinating quilted pillow covers. Each design in this collection includes a heavy focus on gold- the crowned king deserves no less. 

Baby bibs

 

The bib set includes the classic colors associated with the book: gold (of course), white, and black. The colors and patterns have a strong, powerful energy. The set includes three bibs. They are each incredibly soft- soft enough even for our sensitive skin babes. They are available in both the bandana and long bib forms with either Fleece or French Terry Cloth backing. And of course, they are machine washable so they will last for years to come. Most certainly longer than Max’s adventure to rumpus with the wild things. 

Modern baby quilt on water

Meet “Wild Rumpus.” The first quilt and quilted pillow cover design in this collection. This design was inspired by the nighttime skies that Max sails and leads his rumpus through. The back is a gorgeous navy blue and gold stripe fabric. The horizontal straight line quilting creates a water-inspired texture running throughout this soft fabric. Perfect to lay across you and your baby (toddlers, especially) as you read your copy of Where the Wild Things Are. Oh yeah, did we mention yet that each quilt purchased from this collection comes with a new copy of the book?

Pink baby quilt on a tree

Next in line is: “Mischief of One Kind and Another.” It’s interesting that the colors usually associated with this book are gold, white, and black because there are so many pinks and yellows throughout. We took the pink and yellow from Max’s sailboat and brought it to a quilted form. The equilateral triangles represent the sailboat. The mix of light and darker pinks are the ocean waves crashing onto each other. The vertically stitched quilted lines and vertical lines of pinks and yellows on the back of the quilt evoke of sense of empowerment and confidence. Traits we often try to instill in our next generation.  

Green baby quilt

And finally: Max himself: “King of All Wild Things.” The forest greens of the vines hanging from Max’s ceiling and walls meets the cream and white equilateral triangles taken from Max’s crown. And of course, there’s fabric speckled with gold. The back of this quilt is a luscious green with metallic gold running up and down just like the vines and trees. And the quilt is wrapped up with a hand stitched binding filled with white and gold. 

Wild Things Collection Quilts and Pillows

Each quilt design is available in either the baby (40” x 40”) or toddler (40” x 50”) size. The quilted pillow covers are also available in either an 18” by 18” or 20” x 20” square. Custom square sizes are possible, just send an inquiry to casey@caseysheilaquilts.com. Lastly, this is a limited edition collection so there is a finite number of each buttery soft product. But, if you’ve had your heart set on something and it sells out, please send an inquiry to casey@caseysheilaquilts.com. As always, these items are made-to-order with love and attention to every detail. 

“And Max the king of all wild things was lonely and wanted to be where someone loved him best of all.”

Happy reading snuggling. xoxo.
