This is a post different than usual, a very sweet post <3. Patrícia from the blog “Pequeno Mundo a 3” (you already know her, right? 😉 ) is soon due to become mum for the second time 🙂 She is already Miss Caracolinhos’ mum and is expecting another little girl in a few days, so her little world is going to grow a bit more.
Although I don’t know Patrícia personally (yet) I can tell you that she is a very sweet, kind and funny person, so when the idea of a Baby Shower came up I immediately said YES!! She deserves it and the arrival of a new baby is always a good reason to celebrate 🙂
Not being able to make a traditional Baby Shower, the idea was to virtually reunite a group of bloggers and make the “party”. Like in any conventional Baby Shower the baby gets presents, so this is my welcome present for Baby S. ❤
This was my first time sewing something for a baby and loved it. I must say that was made with plenty of care, love and hope Patrícia will like it.
For Baby S. I made a two matching pieces, a top with a ruffle collar and bloomers. Both patterns are from the book “Intemporel Pour Bébés” and I must say that I love the way they look. The fabric used for the top is Clip Dot Petal cotton lawn from Michael Miller that I already had for some time and that seemed perfect for a baby because it is so soft. For the ruffle I used a Liberty (Katie and Millie) already used before and that matched beautifully (my own opinion of course 😉 ). Both pieces are 3 month size, so hopefully Baby S. will be able to wear it during Summer.
When a new baby is born and already have a big brother or sister, I usually also give them a present and this time is no exception, so I made a tunic for Miss Caracolinhos to match her baby sister (I know, I have a huge tendency for matching siblings clothes, twins or not, just can’t help it!). For big sister I used the same fabric combo and the pattern is Marie by Citronille in size 4 (hope not too big…).
I love this tunic/dress and think it’s perfect for summer. The only change I made to the pattern was the way it closes in the back and instead of a button and a thread loop I extended the bias tape to make a bow. Last summer I made a dress version for my girls and the thread loop kept breaking so I thought this would work better and once again, in my opinion, look better.
So these are my baby shower gifts for Patrícia’s little girls 🙂 Hope she will like them and get them soon, with no stops in Japan 😉
Now I strongly advise you to go visit the other blogs who joined the party. There is a huge amount of cuteness I assure you 😉
