Sweet little baby grow made from a Danish pattern that I found online. I’m getting to a stage in my sewing career where people have now come to expect hand crafted gifts from me! When close friends were expecting their first child I thought I better pull all the stops out and enter the world of children’s wear and perhaps learn a thing or two along the way. Truthfully though, I had found the cute fox fabric on a website and had to find a use for it! Organic cotton, super soft and snug, perfect for baby.
I really enjoyed making this and have bought a few more kids patterns to work on. It can be useful making mini versions of things with only a small wastage of fabric if it all goes wrong!
The pattern itself was straightforward but the English instructions were minimal and I had a few moments of confusion. I abandoned following the pattern eventually and winged it myself. Along with help from the odd you tube tutorial I figured out what I should have been doing. If you’re having a go at this, make up the largest size ( 9 months) I was originally making it to a smaller size when numerous mothers told me newborns don’t always arrive in newborn size! I think nine months should more than cover it! Also gals, don’t forget to add your seam allowance!
