I have a very special friend who is having her first little bambina…
It’s so fun to sew for babies, yah? Especially little girlies. There is just somethin’ about it…
This sleep sack was made using Anna Maria Horner’s Book Handmade Beginnings. Love!

I’ve made one before, and really… it’s very simple to put together. Definitely my go-to baby gift.
The flannel interior is so cozy.
And the patchwork is great because you can use up scraps! Hallelujah!
Also in the book is a pattern for stacking/nesting blocks.
Not for the beginner sewist, for sure. The most difficult part was getting the pellon in correctly so the thing didn’t turn out all catawampus. <yes it’s a word…I spell checked it>
But, after all the toil…it has become worth it seeing them here
I created them so that the nesting block exterior matches the corresponding interior to *hopefully* help baby learn how they nest
I love ‘em and wanna keep ‘em…
Oops, punk sister would like them to stay too…
Well, we got over it and packaged them up all nice and sent them on their way to the shower.
Does anyone else have Handmade Beginnings?
Post some pics of your finished products from the book to the Living with Punks Facebook page and we can all see :)Oh, and if you are intimidated about making a patchwork garment, you can use my TUTORIAL to ease all your fears :)
