A Summer of Sewing for Babies

A Summer of Sewing for Babies

These past couple of months I have had a lot of fun sewing for babies. This summer our friends and family are welcoming three boys and a girl. Allie and her sister are expecting boys a week apart! I bought some adorable fabric that I can’t wait to sew up. I had a few projects I needed to complete first before I could start new projects. Here is a quick peek at some of what I have been working on.

I have made several of these boxy bags to give as gifts. These are so quick to make and practical too.
I made these coasters out of scrap fabric with PUL and batting sandwiched between them. They work great and the bonus is they cost me nothing but a little time. I am using these at work, so they kind of fit in with the Auburn Tiger theme.

A closeup of James’ day gown. I love the lace and Swiss insertion. So worth the multiple steps it takes to do – entredeux to fabric, entredeux to lace, lace to entredeux, entredeux to insertion . . . . I love sweet heirloom clothes on babies. Perfect for a homecoming gown.

Coordinating outfits for late summer. A 3 mo baby romper for James and a John John for Henry. Charlie is the master at picking out embroidery designs, buttons and snap colors.
Henry and Pop hanging out playing. Henry is wearing one of several t-shirts I embroidered for him. He likes the appliqued octopus.

Thanks for spending some time with me. What have you been working on this summer?
