In November I started sewing baby clothes. I made 8 outfits, blanket, a sling and something to carry the baby home in.
I used a lot of scrap fabric only 2 patterns that I kind of altered a little. I started with the little dresses in brown and pink and the cupcake and candy. Then used the same fabric to make a little jumper. Being a mom I added a lot of snaps in the inseam when they wanted me to make a seam for easy diaper changes. Yes, it took me forever to sew those dang snaps in everything!
I made this pattern myself using another pattern to get the size right for a little baby. I know how to patternmake but I don't do it that often because It's all been done before. I use other patterns to change things up. I made these little outfits reversible add snaps to the shoulders.
After I made these outfits I got a request to make a colts outfit to bring the baby home in. I bought a t-shirt but couldn't find one for a newborn so I did a center back seam. I did the same with the pants. Bought a pair and took them in at the side seams. I ordered the fabric from NFL.com and added it to the bottom of the shirt and pants. And since it's going to be freezing when she brings the baby home I made a little thing to bring the baby home in and used the extra Colts fabric to line it.
I've already posted this on the blog. I made a sling for her to carry the baby. Yeah, the peace signs are upside down! Even when you've been sewing forever you make mistakes. It was a late night when I made this so I wasn't using my brain too much and just wanted to get it done.
The last thing I made her was a blanket. She's been showing what she's been doing to the baby's room on facebook. I knew she was using pink and brown to decorate. But, yeah.. I don't like making quilts. I'm like to sew garments and you can tell. This didn't come out that great but she liked it anyway.
Until next time, Enjoy your moments ~ make them "sew" much fun, Cindy
