Going to a shower today ...

One of my girlfriends is having her very first baby - a little girl. She is due in September .. and I can not wait! I did some baby girl sewing yesterday and I just love love love it!!

First, I made a diaper clutch using this tutorial from Noodlehead. It was soooo super easy. The hardest part of the whole thing was getting the linen to cooperate. I find that linen likes to move around and get all bent out of shape. I just used the iron and tons of starch, but still tricky!!

Then I used the itty bitty dress pattern from Made by Rae.

I did make a few little adjustments. I did some top stiching around the top, and zigzagged the seams ... just a couple of little things that she did not mention in the pattern, but I am sure that most people would do!!

Then, I made a cute little pair of bloomers to go underneath the dress. I have no idea if they will even fit - but they look super cute!!


When my daughter was born, I did not really sew anything for her. I did lots of knitting and crocheting, but no sewing. ALMOST makes me want another baby. I suppose I can be satisfied making for other beautiful babies.


  1. AWWW, how sweet is that little dress and bloomers:)

  2. Oh wow, they are beautiful, I bet your friend is delighted. Don't go having babies so you can sew though! :)
