I had fun sewing baby items for a friends shower last week. I used super soft flannel fabrics for bibs and burp cloths. Joanns had their Snuggle flannels on sale so, I pick up a few.
I also had a couple of solids in my stash and a pretty vintage pink rose flannel that I found at an estate sale last summer.
For the shower gift I used the mint green cherry blossom paired with a pink minky dot for one set...
And the vintage pink rose and solid pink for the other set.
I used the same pattern for the bib as the last one I made. Its from Heather Bailey's blog.
For the pink rose burp cloth I just free-handed a pattern.
Then, along with several items from her registry, I packed them all into a handmade fabric bin.
I constructed this one slightly different than the others I've made here and here.
It is a bit smaller and the handles are attached to the sides rather than the top edge.
I think bins are always useful...for toys, diapers, blankets, dvds, books, etc. So, hopefully she can find a place for it. :)
Babies are so fun to sew for! And I'm always looking for new ideas. What type of projects do you like to make for baby?
