Little baby outfits like this one are so satisfying because they don’t take much time or many materials. A small amount of baby flannel became basic baby pants, to which I added a leg ruffle for fun. Then I made a small applique with a scrap of fabric and sewed it onto a plain bodysuit. I’ve done a similar thing to bodysuits that were given to us but I didn’t like the design on, but this one was just a nice, soft, plain white one. The pants were a little too long, so I’ve turned up a basted hem on the ruffle, which makes it a little stuff, but I think I should be able to take it back out easily in a couple months when she’s taller, and then these pants should be favorites all winter.
The crafty floodgates have now opened on new girl baby things! I’ve been experimenting with making appliques using my embroidery machine. This is for Baby #3 to wear in the hospital, announcing her name. (Novema is my grandmother’s name.)
Taken from the states and capitols fabric of the bag I recently made.
A store-bought skirt paired with a t-shirt made from Moda Glamping Tents And Trailers Honey Bee fabric, which will be also featured in some upcoming girly projects I’ve got in mind.
And a little dress/jumper with matching shoes. Since she’ll be an October baby this dress will be worn in the winter over a layer of warm knits. I used McCall’s M4421 for the dress and the Cameron baby sneakers pattern from I Think Sew for the booties.
