I LOVE Baby Girl Sewing! September 16, 2013 – Posted in: baby, crochet, dress, girls clothes, sewing
I absolutely LOVE sewing cute baby things! Especially baby girl things! 😀
So, do you remember the Easter dresses I made this year? (If you don’t they are shown at the end of THIS post.) I also made a matching tie for my son later this summer (shown in THIS post) but he didn’t want the “girly” yellow I picked out so I used grey instead. That meant I had a half yard of coordinating yellow polka dot fabric just waiting for Hannah to be born. I guess it was meant to be. 😉
So, I whipped up an Itty Bitty Baby dress (free pattern available HERE) and then went overboard with a Peekaboo Bonnet (pattern for sale HERE).
I know, I almost never ever buy patterns, but I have always wanted to make a bonnet and this was my last chance! Oh, it is sooooo cute, too! I am super pleased with how these turned out. I love piping and eyelet lace trim. (And tiny little baby feet, too!) LOVE!
I also love the sunshiney yellow color, and it matched the dress I wore for a pic taken 12 days before she was born when I was ginormous, so we did a little “after” pic to go with the “before” one.
Actually, first I made another dress for my niece so that they could match. The cousins were born two days apart and we all got to hang out at the hospital together. How cool is that? Of course, my niece was a big girl, so I made her dress in the 0-3 month size instead. Since this was my sister-in-law’s first girl, I knew a little pink was in order, too. 🙂
I ran out of piping to do another bonnet, but I also made her a crocheted bear hat (using my free pattern HERE) that should fit her this fall and increased the size on that one as well.
I know I used the word “LOVE” an awful lot in this post, but making things for baby girls, especially girls this cute, really does that to me!
