Baby Shower Gift Set

imageMy 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.image

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!
