For Baby

Today I spent some time making some clothing for the baby.  I love baby clothes but hate spending all that money on things that they will wear for such a short amount of time.  I have lots of cute fabrics so I went to work.  At first I used the pattern for Kimono Pj’s for pants from Amy Butler’s Little Stitches book.  They were a ton of work!  I have sewn pants before and decided to make my own pattern for the other pair.  It went together much better and they look better too.  I will have to write up a tutorial.  I decided to applique some onesies to match the pants.  I have about 5 more outfits in my head that I want to do.  These are so perfect with the elastic waist as they slip on and off so easily for diaper changes.  Now if only I had a serger to make them all professional looking……someday!

    I love those! I have had such fun adding embroidery and fabrics to my little one’s shirts and pants, too. Yours are super cute.
