I am excited to be going to a family baby shower for a friend. This will be her fourth baby, so I wanted it to be extra special. Since I have been trying to teach myself to sew, I figured I would try some baby items! Thanks to the internet and Pinterest, I found the confidence and ideas I needed!
I made this small lovey quilt to fit right over the baby in a carrier. I didn't have a pattern for this, but I did read tons of tutorials before I started. I learned that cute bumpy fabric is not so fun to sew (stretches).
I wanted to sew something on a onesie, but I couldn't decide, so I just ironed on a few cute sayings.
My favorite new things are these fun and complicated, but not too complicated, drawstring bags! I have made several thanks to the great tutorial at In Color Order. I used this bag as a grab and go for this busy family. I put an extra onesie, wipes, a few diapers, ziplocks, and hand sanitizer in it for a quick alternative to a diaper bag. I also found a great tutorial at The Blissfully Content Life for a cute diaper changing roll that I created with matching fabric.
And of course, I had to create an owl for the new little guy! I tried two new things: I made a bow tie from ribbon and I used a up cycled a jean's pant leg for the back of this one.
My neighbor has a newborn and I can't wait to get started on his gift now! Sew much Fun!
