Lady Bug Jammies

I have definitely caught the sewing baby clothes bug!  They are so cute and don't take much time and I get excited with the completion of project thinking about how cute it will look on my daughter in a few months!  Last night  I finished up a cute set of baby jammies.  You might recognize the material from the PAJAMA PANTS I made for myself earlier this year when I taught Rick how to sew.   I made these tiny jammies from material I had left over.  The material is a cozy soft flannel that I purchased at Hobby Lobby.

Tiny Jammies!

I used the pattern called  Lucy's Kimono from HEATHER ROSS'S WEEKEND SEWING.  It was so easy to make.  I think I will have to make more!  When I showed it to my mom, she said this style of top was her favorite for a little baby because you don't have to pull it over their head.  In fact, she made some for us girls when we were little babies.  If I can find a picture, I may share.

Here it is with the top flap open.  I may use Velcro for the inside flap instead of a bow so that there is less bulk and I can be extra lazy :-) 

All bundled up!  All that is missing is a cute baby!

The pants were made using the BIG BUTT BABY PANTS from MADE BY RAE again.  This time I added the optional fold-up cuffs.  I used the 0-3 month size to go with the sizing of the kimono.  I love the little lady bugs!

Big Butt Baby Pants!  One cuff is folded up and the other down so you can see the options available:

And here's the back view:

I can't wait to try these on my daughter in February.  Ooh!  she just kicked me in excitement!  Now I have to decide what to sew next.  There are so many great patterns and tutorials out there.  What shall I make next?

As always, thanks for looking!!


Big Butt Baby Pants

I went to Wal-Mart and, of course, I was drawn to the corner of the store that has cute little socks and onesies and dresses.  And on this day there was a cute little sweater that called my name.  I had to buy it.  My daughter will be born in February and she is going to need things that will keep her warm.  So, I bought it!

Isn't it cute?  I was looking at it and thinking that baby girl is going to need some pants to go with her new sweater.  Rae of MADE BY RAE had finished up a great pattern for her BIG BUTT BABY PANTS not too long ago.  So I went over to her awesome blog and purchased it  and was oh so excited to download it and get started!

The sweater is a 3-6 month size, so I went with the 3-6 month size for the pants.  I didn't want to go out and but more fabric, so I checked out my stash.  I found some purple material that matched the purple on the sweater.  If you have been following my blog, you might recognize it from a previous project for another cute girl.  Remember THIS?  That's the fabric I used!  And I have to say that my niece approves of the fabric choice!

The pattern was easy to follow and was very quick to put together.  I can't wait to put them on my little girl.  Are you ready to see them?  Here they are!

and Back View:
Aren't they cute!  I love the back panel because I'm sure that will make them fit so much better over a diaper.  Comfy and cozy for a little baby.  I think I need to make a ruffled butt pair.  Ever little girl needs a pair of ruffle butt pants.  Oh,I have one more picture for you.  Here is the complete outfit:
Now that I have started sewing for baby girl, I'm not sure I'll be able to stop.  I have been checking out all kinds of great blogs for patterns and tutorials and I just need to pick something to make next!
Thanks for looking!!


New Fall Purse

Happy Fall!  I made myself a new purse to celebrate the changing leaves and cooler weather.  Rae of Made by Rae posted a really cute owl bag that she made using her Lickety Split pattern with some modifications.  I loved what she came up with and had to make one of my very own.  I started this last week and officially finished it today.  (I should add that the pattern is simple; the only reason it took me so long is that I couldn't decide on what to use for the closure and I was being lazy about finishing the top-stitching.)  I love all the pockets!  It has 4!

  Here's my Happy New Fall Purse!
Instead of a button and loop for the closure, I used a fabric flower and loop!  I used the Rolled Rose tutorial over at Portabellopixie to make the fabric flower.

I love my new purse!  I  love this time of year.  :-)
Thanks for looking!
