I haven't digitized too many patterns, but one trick I found that worked great is taking a picture of your pattern on a surface with a grid ... in my case, a cutting mat.
This makes it easier to get the correct curves and proportions on the digital pattern. Just a tip ... make sure to take the picture without leaning to one side or the other because that will distort your gridlines. Whenever I make a pattern this way, I always feel like I'm finishing one of those puzzles I used to do as a kid where you had to redraw the picture ... like this (borrowed image):
According to Mae, this bib is much better for painting than it is for eating :) I have to agree with her. After all, we need to protect the Geranium dress (blogged here) underneath!
I plan on making a few more of these because I have a baby shower to go to this weekend for my cousin's first baby. It's a girl ... just in case you couldn't tell from the fabric choices :)
