Our ninth grandchild is due in January of next year. It's been hard keeping it a secret because we have known since Father's Day that our youngest son, Kyle, and his wife, Briana, are expecting their first baby.
I have been plotting and planning what to make for this baby. You know there will be a quilt, but since I have gotten into garment sewing again I wanted to try making some clothes for the baby, too.
Before I bought any special fabrics I thought I would play with some scraps from the Linden Sweatshirt dress I made myself a few months ago. Both are knits from Birch Fabrics manufacturer.
I bought the onesie pattern at QuiltCon in February, in anticipation that there were more grandchildren on the horizon. It's the Lullaby Line Bodysuit and T-Shirt pattern by Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop. I made a three month size, which says it fits 8-12 pounds. I followed the pattern exactly, adding a fussy cut Panda from a Japanese canvas print called Animaland. I think the red snaps make a cute finish.
The pants are made using the Just Hatched Baby Leggings FREE pattern from Made by Rae.
My venture into making baby clothes has begun. I would like to try the Big Butt Baby Pants, also a Made by Rae pattern.
