Sewing for Baby Boy
I love sewing for babies! It’s so cool to think you are making something that a newborn will wear. I always seem to take more care in how I handle the fabrics and in how I store it until it is done.
This little set will be going to a friend from church who is on her second child. She already has a girl, so it was extra fun to make some boy stuff for her….I’m sure she is ready for some rough and tumble boy stuff. Although this fabric is not all that tough, it does have worms! 😉
I cut out this special scene from the main fabric and added fusible interfacing to the back to stablize it. I also added the same interfacing to the underside of the shirt where I knew I would be sewing the applique. I used a very tiny satin stitch on my machine. I stitched around the fabric twice, making sure my stitches were not perfect. I like the rough edge look, and it’s easier to hide your mistakes 🙂
I also added the little red felt sun to the side for some added interest. I love how it turned out and will be using this technique again
For the bib I used Chickpea Sewing Studios bib pattern here
For the burp cloths I used Homemade by Jills pattern piece here
