The Julia Bib Necklance and Headband

The Julia Bib and Headband are now available!   I ran across this pattern a week ago and it  immediately got bumped up to the "must make it NOW" pile. My niece Julia turned 6 months this week and her momma was looking for a cute photo prop for our new little sitter. When we took my daughters six month pictures I remember it being tough to figure out what to put her in because she had just started sitting up and wasn't doing to much. This little necklace is the perfect attention grabber for those little one pics!

I am really excited to whip one up for Mary Kate in golds and browns to wear this fall with a little corduroy/brocade jacket I am getting ready to make for her. What a dramatic statement! And I may be stashing one away for myself as well :) 

Julia's momma, my talented sister, Emily, took these beautiful pictures.  We are so lucky to have a photographer amongst us!  We have used Mary Kate's room for several photo shoots because the lighting is just perfect for these airy, soft photos.

Here are the details about our newest addition, available in the store today:

 This beautiful accessory will compliment any girls look. Used individually for little ones, the Julia Bib Necklace and Headband makes a lovely statement as a photo prop. Children, as well as adults, may dress up the neckline of any simple tank or dress with this bejeweled bib.

The Julia bib features silk, organza, and lace flowers, some singed, some sewn, all handmade. The center of each flower is finished with a bead, button, or rhinestone. Each embellishment is hand sewn and tied with strong floss to prevent removal. Each bib is finished on the back hiding all hand sewing and ties with satin or silk ribbon, making it completely adjustable to fit your little one.

Two Bib Sizes Available:
0-3 years: 5 1/2 inches wide x 3 1/4 inches tall (pictured above)
4-adult (a larger size with more flowers) 6 1/4 inches wide x 4 inch tall

Headband Sizes:

Newborn - 13 1/4"
3-6 Months - 14 1/2"
6-12 Months - 16"
12 Months-Teen - 17 1/2"

Example above is creams and pale pinks, but I can work with you to customize this creation.

Buttons and jewels may vary based upon availability. I accept keepsake treasures to incorporate into the design (ex. a grandma's brooch, handkerchief from a wedding, etc).  I used several buttons from our grandma's vintage button collection in the one pictured.

Each piece is a unique creation just for you; therefore it may slightly vary from pictured above.

Please just send me a message if you would like to purchase just the bib or just the headband and I will make a special listing for you. Bib alone is $30.00, headband alone is $10.00

Bib and headband combo: $38.00
