Hi hi! Just in case you were wondering, no baby yet. Still a few weeks to go until the due date. Patience my friends. But rather than regale you with more large belly photos, this week (and maybe next) I’m going to unleash all the stuff I’ve been sewing for the little dude over the past couple months. WATCH. OUT. It’s going to be a baby-sewing-bonanza, I’m warning you. First, these two little pairs of Newborn Pants:
I just adore those little hedgies.
Both fabrics were designed by Lizzy House, who is one of my very favorite fabric designers, and I think she creates some of the best designs for little boys out there.
If you would like to make your own, the pattern for the pants is free on my blog and can be found here:
It’s a nice easy sewing project, but I will say two things that I have noticed about this pattern: first, it is a bit big for the average NEWLY HATCHED newborn; but it does tend to fit in the 0-3 month size range, and second, PLEASE make sure that you mark the leg seams and center seams carefully after you cut out your pattern — many people have confused the two, which creates a pair of pants that has a VERY low rise (think baby plummer butt) and long legs. This does not result in a great fit, as you might imagine. Anyway, it’s no fun to go back and fix something that should have taken less than an hour, right? So keep that in mind. Happy Sewing!
