My new niece Nicole was born on Friday afternoon! She's doing well and they've brought her home now. I'm probably going to keep calling her Babyspawn here. I set up a mini assembly line over the weekend and made up some cute new clothes.
This is the Kimono PJ top from Little Stitches for Little Ones. i like that this top has raglan sleeves rather than true kimono sleeves. i made the 6 month size because it'll probably be awhile before i accumulate enough items to send a package. i found this pattern kind of annoying, mostly because of the bias tape. the second time around it wasn't as bad, but i was definitely ready to be done by the end.
These are the Quick change trousers from Handmade Beginnings. i really liked this pattern. i absolutely love that it's reversible and that you can easily distinguish the front from the back.
the first pair in Remix i followed the instructions to the letter and finished all the seams on my Horizon. i finally learned how to use the overcast foot, hooray! it's so slow to use though. the next morning i finally got off my lazy ass and rethreaded my serger and the next 2 pairs went much more quickly. even though you make 2 sets for each pair of pants it goes fast, especially by sewing each step in tandem. i wish i had a pair of reversible pj pants. so so cute.
evidently Nicole has giant boat feet just like my brother, so i might have to make some big booties or socks. now that i know they have a girl, i want to make some cute dresses. i'm open to recommendations for cute patterns, especially ones with a big sizing range that i can reuse as she gets older.
