Description

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!

    This turned out great. I originally started sewing with the intention of making my own clothes but have only made stuff for my kids and for baby shower gifts. It suits my short attention span and limited amount of time to be able to work on projects. I love sewing baby clothes!
