This baby due in my family in the spring- well she'll be the object of my sewing inspiration for a while... she's a girl! And her mama is my cousin that I grew up with. I absolutely cannot wait until this baby gets here, also it will make me no longer the only one (locally) with small children - you know what they say, misery loves company! HAHA I'm kidding. ( or am I?)
Well I made her the reversible blanket. I'm trying to keep it simple and practical. I've had a newborn 3 times and I know in the early days you just can't have enough onesies, blankets, burp rags and diapers. So I made a set of bibs and a matching receiving blanket. Thin cotton (100% I checked) and with a vintage floral pattern- I'm not much for floral, but tastes of it here and there can be ok. It's especially nice when it's in contrasting colors.
The bibs with velcro closure
I love yellow!! Especially paired with contrasting colors. Blues, periwinkles, lavender, gray, it goes so well.
To make the bibs I downloaded a free pdf pattern and printed it out. For the blanket, well I just eyeballed it. Seriously.
I love sewing for other people's kids! This was a very easy project - definitely great for beginners.
On another note- I started hula hooping 3 days ago!!! I.am.so.sore. Once I get good I'll record myself and show you guys, but don't hold your breath until then!
