My niece-in-law is expecting her first baby in a few weeks. Her baby shower is coming up soon so I thought I would use the occasion to make a few more pj items for my Summer Sew Along projects. I need, I mean get to make six sleep wear items before August:) I am going to be gone for a week in July so I am trying to get things made early.
I have an etsy shop called Toot Sweets Diapers where I sell organic All in Two sized cloth diapers. I knew that for one of my sleep wear projects I wanted to make a diaper set for a baby. I bought this fantastically cute pattern online from Peek a Boo Pattern Shop. I picked out some SWEET fabric that I had in my stash and started sewing.
The pattern was very very easy to follow and understand. I haven’t sewn clothing for babies in a long time and was amazed at how little of fabric it needed to make a sleeve! The finished project is ADORABLE!
BUT the pattern was a bit misleading and made me a little angry because that darling hat is not included in the pattern! I had to go back online and buy another seperate pattern for the hat. UGH! It is a darling hat, but hey, if it is shown on the pattern, it should be included unless plainly marked.
Oh well, I am glad I have the patterns. This will be my baby shower gift for all new babies in the future:)
I made up a plain black small/medium diaper to match this funky set. It will fit my little nephew until he is around 17lbs or so. I included an extra doubler for heavy wetting.
I am excited to give this gift at the shower. I know my niece is going to think it is SWEET!
