I have a few friends who are due to give birth soon, so I thought I would attempt to make some new baby gifts.
After spending many hours in the past stressing about finding the perfect baby present , I just decided to make something that I like. After all, what is PERFECT for one baby can be a waste of time for another...
I thought I'd make a little outfit consisting of a pair of baby trousers and an appliquéd onesie. I made a pair of newborn trousers using this pattern. (see I'm working up... dolls clothes, newborn clothes, maybe Rascal will get her dress before she's a teenager after all!)
Although I was pleased with the trousers, I realised that they are not a suitable present for a winter baby. The material is FAR too thin and what's the point in giving a present that will never be worn?
For my second attempt, I used this great corduroy. I became a bit more adventurous and added a pocket and binding using this tutorial. Just look at these cute trousers!
I then got into the swing of it and made some more...
I have a question... would you put the red trousers on
a) a boy
b) a girl
c) the one with a pocket on a boy and the one with no pocket on a girl?
d) either because they are so darn cute!!!
The appliqué onesies will have to follow in a future post. I've got to be patient and wash them before I start sewing... grumble grumble... Check back here tomorrow when I hope to have something to show you!
