My Bee Sewcial mates and I threw a virtual baby shower for one of our own recently, and I can now share what I made for Kari/quiltsforthemaking and her new little boy.
One of the items I've enjoyed making several times for baby gifts is a travel changing pad from Amy Butler's Little Stitches for Little Ones. I used this pattern to make a couple for grandgirl when she was a baby, and they worked and washed really well. I didn't think to get a photo that better shows that the inside is made from terry cloth, but it's soft and cozy. Having participated in the heårtland Blog Tour along with Kari, I knew she liked the line and had made a quilt for baby with it. Kismet!
Another go-to baby pattern is Little Baby Bibs by Jennie/Clover & Violet. These were especially fun with the fussy cut animals from the Hello, Bear collection by Bonnie Christine.
Sweet little baby items are always a fun sew. I keep adding to a Sewing for Baby pin board, so I'm prepared with ideas when the need strikes!
