Quick and Easy Sew: Baby Gift with Free patterns

In my last post, I told you we know three different couples that are expecting (and one has just delivered) babies. I love making little baby gifts to welcome all the new life.

I know that getting stuff can be overwhelming for new parents. People love to give baby gifts. So I like to keep it small and simple. The project needs to be quick and easy for me too.

For the baby booties, I used the FREE pattern by Stardust Shoes.  This patterns fits all of my requirements, and has a high “squeeeee” factor. AND it is FREE. Perfect.

The pants were made using Made by Rae’s FREE Basic Newborn Pant pattern. I have used this pattern many times in the past. The Bee has even made some for her teacher a few years ago. Simple and easy. I always add a few inches, though to the top and bottom, so I can turn under more generously. I just like a wider casing and hem.

Another baby gift down, and it may be my favorite so far. I love that fabric. A friend gave it to me for my birthday, and I was saving it for something special. I can’t think of a more perfect use for it.

What do YOU make for babies?

All of a sudden, we know three different people that are either expecting or just gave birth. What is in the water, people?! I have to say, I absolutely adore making baby things, though. I haven’t done it in a while, so I really had to look through my patterns and came up with a great baby gift idea that is quick and fun to make:

The insides aren’t finished, just used pinking shears to clip the edges, but you really don’t see them.

I have had that fabric in my stash forever, and have no idea where it originally came from, but I adore it! I actually used it  on the first pair I made in 2010. This pair are lined with super soft gray flannel.
