When I made my #2018makenine plans earlier on in the year, they contained baby clothes. Yep, that’s right…baby clothes for my baby. Quite often I still think that it’s crazy that I’ve got the opportunity to make clothes for MY baby. Well, Rosie is now 8 months old and apart from a couple of accessories, I’ve actually only made 2 clothing items for her. We were given the Simplicity 8304 Baby Gear pattern as a gift and I loved the little dresses so much. I decided that this would be my first venture into sewing for Rosie!
A little update for you all: I’m 36 weeks pregnant now! Almost ready to pop and have been put on modified bedrest to help stop our little baby girl arriving any earlier than she needs to. This means I’ve now got some extra time on my hands, and as much as being in bed & watching TV sounds great, I’m already looking for other things to keep me busy. I’m trying to compile a list of meals to prep and freeze before her arrival and of course, I’ve been thinking about some sewing plans. At the moment they are just plans as I need to try and set myself up on the sewing table so that it’s comfortable for my hips and pelvis…maybe pillows strapped to the bench?? We’ll see!
Pinterest has been a great source for ideas and I’ve been quite surprised at how many free baby sewing patterns I’ve found. I’ve started putting them onto a little Pinterest board but just picked a few out that I’m going to start with. As I know that I’ll be slower with projects than usual, I’ve chosen narrowed it down to ones I think will be useful to me straight away. It seems that there are a lot of baby sewing patterns out there that are extremely cute but somewhat lack usefulness…I’ll be making the cutesy things further down the line!
