    Sewing for Baby... little wardrobe

    I just finished these little clothes to give to my daughter at her baby shower on Saturday. She ordered the fabrics herself and I made the styles I wanted to make. Lots of fun for this grandma to be...

    Bonnie, each one is adorable...your grand daughter is going to be the best dressed baby! I need to see if I can get a romper pattern in a 24 month size... and that sweater is too cute.

    Your DD is going to love your gifts.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Your DGD will be the best dressed little girl around. Those are just precious and the sweater is a treasure. I have sweaters saved from my babies who now have babies of their own.

    Oh my goodness, those are so darling! I used to sew a lot for my daughter when she was small. They didn’t have such cute fabrics back then.

    Little girls have come a long way from pink ruffles, haven't they?
    Your creations are lovely, and look exceptionally well made. Have fun with that grand daughter!

    jmoore, the long romper and the pink dress are from New Look pattern #DO941. It goes up to a "large" which is for a 21-24 lb child, and 31-34" tall.

    The ruffled bubble romper is from New Look pattern # DO570, in the same size range.

    Those are just precious! Your grand baby is going to be the cutest baby in town. That knitted sweater is adorable. I always wished I had taken knitting classes. Seems like I've always been a "self taught" gal & never got past things like cast on, purl & knit when it came to knitting and chain, single crochet & double crochet when it came to crocheting. Well, one can't make much with those limited skills.

    Such a wonderful wardrobe you have made for your new little one. They are all so cute and beautifully done. The sweater is gorgeous. Your daughter is lucky to have someone that sews such cute clothes.

    Actually, those skills are about all that is in that sweater. Its very easy... "The 5 Hour Baby Sweater" (if you knit fast!) There are some increases to make the yoke round, but that is just knitting into the front and back of the stitch. And there are decreases at the sleeve cuffs, but those are just knitting two sts together. There are some great video tutes online for the "self taught" knitter. I am self taught too. Learned waaaaayyy before the internet, by following diagrams in magazines. When I was a teenager all the Family Circle and Women's Day magazines had knitting instruction and patterns. Now they only have sex, diets and food.

    Try these video tutes. If you don't like them, there are plenty more available online by different teachers.
