Shannon said...

I whipped this up for my friend's baby shower and she loved it. The only change I made was I elongated the neck pieces to attach with velcro instead of ties. I also used different colors.

I got so many compliments on it.

Thanks!

Marcy said...

This is perfect! My niece is expecting her first child and lives in New Zealand. I'm in the UK and want to crochet something for the baby that is easy to post but didn't want to do jackets because the climate is much warmer there. I know my niece will love this. Thank you so much for sharing it with others.

I must tell you how much I love this pattern! It has given me so many ideas for other characters to safeguard pacifiers, too.

Thank you for allowing crafters to recreate your brilliance. I'm sure many others will be viewing your creativity when seeing the credit given to your design ... especially through the link to your webpage.

Hi Jocelyn,
I saw this for sale on eBay and feel in Love with it. They wanted $10.99 plus I think $5 postage which at the time I didn't have.
I am just beginning to crochet but being a crafter before in life I knitted some,macramed you name it,etc,so I figured that one day I would be able to make something close to it so I saved the pic. Wow I feel like it was fate I found the Pattern!
As a first time Grandma, I want to learn soo bad to at least make stuff like this and I really want to be able to edge socks with different edgings and later beading.
Being disabled I really can't afford to buy patterns,especially when I don't know yet if I'll really ever be able to crochet good enough (I have RA) but I'm going to try my Best!
Anyone know of a good visual and written guide that takes you straight through. I love the videos I find but I get lost on You tube with them being broken up and just getting bits and pieces and having to click something in the middle of something.
Can anyone give me any Suggestions of a really good visual that also has the written to go along with it, since I guess it makes no sense to learn visuals if you can't read patterns!
Thanks a million,I can see myself making this in a month or 2!
This Bib has to be the Sweetest and most Practical Baby Bib ever, it has all the bases covered that's for sure! Thanks Jocelyn you are a genius and must be a Mommy!
Can't Thank you enough for sharing!

Tomi said...

I don't ever post a comment so this is a 1st for me but I have to tell you that this bib just jumped at me when I was searching for anything to do with elephants for my daughters baby shower. She has been collecting elephants since on her 1st Christmas, my mother made her one. She's 19 years old now & expecting her 1st so this is perfect. Thank you for all your hard work into making this one of the best sites I've ever been to & for being so easy to follow.

jocelyn said...

Tomi - I loved your story! Thank you so much for your kind words and for commenting.

IKilledKennyx said...

I love this! I'm working on one with a purple backing for my sister in law whos pregnant with her first. Elephants are her favorite animals, their decorating the whole nursery with elephant stuff, and I already made her a baby blanket with Elephants in each corner, so I love this!
Thank you so much for this pattern, I'll post a picture when I'm done!
I was wondering also If I made more in diff colors would I be able to sell the finished copies? I'd of course give you credit for the pattern, and link your site.

I love this bib and plan to make it for a friend who is expecting.

I came to the comments to see if anything was said about selling finished products. I appreciate that you are open to people selling the creations they make with your patterns. I just wanted to verify that this goes for your free patterns as well. I would absolutely give you credit for the design.

Thanks!

jocelyn said...

Hi Joann,
The Satin Stitch is an embroidery stitch that you can do on crochet fabric. Go to this link to see a picture of one of my projects where I demonstrate the satin stitch. You use a tapestry needle and work the stitch over the rows indicated in the pattern. It works best if you go into the same holes (top and bottom) over and over again until the desired thickness is achieved. Does this help?
Here is the

mini, ea means each. if you do a search online for crochet abbriviations and what they mean, you will find something that gives you everything and tells you how to do it. I hope this helps.

Martha said...

Can i get the measurements for the bib? Mine looks big.

Jocelyn Sass said...

I don't have the dimensions of the bib handy. But the GAUGE is 9 sc = 2 inches. If you have less single crochet over 2 inches of your bib, then you need to try a smaller hook.
I hope this helps!
