Pink baby clouds


A while ago a little girl was born into our family, and of course I couldn't resist sewing her a little welcome gift. I simply love sewing for babies. Making them something special feels like a way of acknowledging what a miracle the arrival of a new person really is. 


Another great thing about baby sewing is the little amounts of fabric you need. This ensemble was entirely made out of little scraps of delicous double gauze left over from this dress.


The little dress is the Grace dress, a free pattern. It has a few different views and closes with buttons in the back. The double gauze would have combined well with some lace or embroidery embellishments, but I think I love the simple look even more.


The shoes in size 1 are so tiny that I wasn't sure if I could put them together nicely. It turned out to be no problem, especially with these thin fabrics. The shoes are fully reversible, so should the nani iro not match her outfit of the day, they can be turned into a plain pink pair. The Wayfarer shoes pattern comes in a wide range of sizes up to 9 years old, so my kids are already picking fabrics...

    1. Hier precies hetzelfde. Maar ja, ik wil het liefst alle cadeautjes zelf maken en dat kost tijd...
