We got married !!!!

Yesterday, we got married (* v *)!!!!
I chose yesterday because it seemed easy to remember the date, 2010/02/10.
I and my husband (!!!!) are not so good at remembering anniversary.

For the marriage registration, we need two person's sign so we went to ask it for our friends couple.
Our friend's wife and I are pregnant so men made us our dinner (* v *)!

My husband and our friend made these.
The dinner was my husband's specialty, Oyako-don.
We enjoyed them very much (* v *)!!!!

I gave them my bibs for their baby what I wrote in my previous post.
Today I'd like to write here how I made the bibs.

Making sloth bib 1
I used these fabrics for them, cotton printed fabric for the right side, cotton soft waffle fabric for the wrong side and cotton towel for the inside. The towel is for well absorbed.

Making sloth bib 2
I piled them like the picture.

Making sloth bib 3
And made the face parts using the pattern(I used thick paper).

Making sloth bib 4
After I put the face on the front fabric, I stitched the face with Sashiko thread.

Making sloth bib 5
After I finished the face, I piled the towel, waffle cotton and front fabric on it.

Making sloth bib 6
Be sure to face the right side inside of the top two fabrics.

Making sloth bib 7
Then sew them together leaving a space to turn it out. I used half back stitch to make it sturdy.
And before you turn it out, please cut the allowances of every curve like the picture. It's important.

Making sloth bib 8
At last, I turned it out, closed the opening and put a pair of snaps. I think it would be more sturdy if I sew the edge again. But I liked this soft taste...

I hope this would help you.
Everyday, I saw the news of heavy snow around the world and am afraid of it. Here it snowed only once and only a little. I hope you all are doing well.
