FO - Baby Bibs from Mason Dixon Knitting
These were easy and fun. I still need buttons, but otherwise they are done. I made the stars and flowers with a bleach pen. This yarn is Den-M-Nit from Elann and since it naturally bleaches out when washed it took the bleach pen very well! That was fun, but a little scary. There are french knots on the center of the flower.









This peach one was done with Bernat Cot'n Corn in nectarine. It's really soft, but it's pretty splitty to work with.

Thank you!

The idea wasn't mine totally. I saw a bib that someone on Rav had bleached stars on (different than mine) and it scared me even more to think about using liquid bleach! So I remembered the bleach pens and tried it and it worked!

I love this style of bib better than any other bib pattern I've ever seen! These are exceptionally well done!

Question regarding the use of the bleach pen: when these bibs are washed...with the bleach bleed over into the colored areas? Will the edges of the bleached designs retain a crisp outline?

I've never heard of bleach pens for knitting design application! Cool idea!

Those are the cutest bibs I've ever seen, and that includes the ones I've made. Love the idea of using the bleach pen, especially as I hadn't a clue there was such a thing. Did you get it from Michaels or Hobby Lobby? Great idea!
