    More Baby Sewing and Knitting This Weekend!

    No quilting, but I had a great weekend sewing these outfits and knitting the shrug for my baby granddaughters. I have another identical shrug in cream cotton, nearly done. Hope this inspires you to sew for babies! So much fun.

    Those are cute.

    I really like the prints you used for the items, too.

    Oh those are so precious & will look outstanding on those beautiful babies. I love the shrug and would love one in my size. It would look great over anything. Glad you are having fun sewing/knitting for the sweethearts.

    Both babies and outfits are just darling!

    That brings back so many memories of sewing for my girls. I even hand sewed a few before I got a machine.

    My, how both Millie and Ivy have grown! I love their adorable smiles!!

    Such cute rompers, hats and shrug! I love the fabrics you used. They must be the best dressed babies of the year! Do you use snap tape for the bottom snaps on the rompers, or do you put in each snap individually? I've always wanted to make rompers and probably will this year, since I'm having a summer baby this time.

    Hi Cathy! I used snap tape on these two... I have the pliers and snaps to do them individually, but they seem to pull of the fabric too often, and I didn't want to risk that happening when the babies needed to use them. The snap tape is kind of pricey, so I used a 50% off coupon at JoAnns. I was just about to look online for a better supplier.

    The short rompers are fun too.

    Oh! my! I want one of those shrugs! What a sweet pattern and your knitting is superb! You've got the blue/green print so nicely centered on the bodice. Well done! I like your choice of plain colored interfacing. Great pictures of the little ones. :-)
