When I first started sewing, my girls were already 5 years old so, the opportunity to sew for babies doesn’t happen often and when it does I grab it!
Most likely you already know Sara from Made by Sara (I’ve mentioned her here before!) just had her 4th child, a lovely baby boy and we are here to celebrate it!
In fact, sewing for boys was a first for me! I confess it was not easy for me to choose a project as don’t have many baby patterns and even less for boys, but I enjoyed it and in the end choose something for when the baby gets a little bigger and because by then he will be moving a lot, also something comfortable but I believe, quite cute as well. 🙂
I made a long sleeve tee and sweatpants so that he can be comfortable while starting to explore all around him! The tee is the Safari Raglan by Titchy Threads in size 6 months. I have made this tee for my girls before and I knew it would be perfect! The fabric I used is a super soft jersey from Nosh that I really like and believe it is perfect for babies.
For the bottom I wasn’t sure what I was going to make but then I remembered the Ottobre magazines I have and had a look. These sweatpants are from issue 6/2016, pattern number 2 in size 74cm.
The recommended fabric for the trousers is sweatshirt knit but instead I used a denim look jersey also from Nosh, that is very comfortable but stylish and worked really well.
The constructions is really quick but with a method for the waistband different from what I am used. My first thought was, I will do it as I usually do, but then I decided to try this method and I am happy I did. I made a small change anyway but love how perfect it looks also on the inside.
Hope Sara and her baby boy like what I’ve made and most of all wish all the best for the new member and, of course, for their lovely family! 🙂
Don’t forget to check all the blogs that are part of Sara’s Baby Shower! I’ve seen such lovely things already. 🙂
