wee sewing :: itty bitty layette

these little tee shirts had been cut out and ready to sew for months- i finally buckled down and stitched them all a few afternoons ago. and just look at how sweet!!

it occurred to me when i got outside with my camera that i had intended to iron them before taking pictures. and notice how i am not fickle at all about which direction the fronts cross over. i made duplicates of most of the prints to add to my baby gift stash.

and here are the cute little hats to match. again, i made a few extra to pass along to our expecting friends!
the tees and hats are all sewn from the new conceptions baby essentials pattern. i love this pattern somuch- if you have a little one to sew for go check it out!

now... moving on to receiving blankets and changing pad covers...
three weeks to go, three weeks to sew!

These are adorable! I want to make some, but I'm terrified of sewing with Knits.

Adorable! Where did you buy the knits-- are they all mad sky?

you're so talented! i'm inspired! i love how the shirts don't all cross over the same way, it's great! :)

They turned out so cute! I love that pattern....it sews up pretty fast and makes a great new baby gift.

Oh sweet, sweet!! As though I needed something else to add to the list of things to 'make for baby'!!!

I have only one week left, at most, but I am putting it on the list anyway:)

Thanks for sharing!

thank you for all the kind comments!!

freda :: knits were a bit daunting to me at first too- i suggest just diving in and giving it a try! there are a couple books out about sewing with knits. perhaps your library has them available!

ally's threads :: i don't think any of them are mad sky, but i could be wrong :) i bought most of them through a diaper sewing friend's co op and the cream colored knit with the little birds and snails and butterflies came from jo anns, if you can believe it!

be :: thanks mama!! :)

miss sews-it-all (erika!) :: thanks a bunch! i am glad you stopped in to visit :)

frugalmom :: thanks monique! i agree, wonderful pattern. i think i may do the ribbing on the cuffs differently next time as we discussed at the park :)

earth mama :: 1 week, how exciting!! i have about 3 weeks left! we will have tiny babes very close in age :)

xoxo,
