While I was waiting for baby Toby to arrive, I was making good use of the time to sew up some more tiny outfits from all my jersey scraps. A couple of friends have also been expecting little ones, so it seemed like a nice idea to make a little outfit for each of the new arrivals.
Because it is near impossible to guess how big or how fast the babies will grow, I went for the 3-6 month sizes this time, and decided to pair the Brindle and Twig cuff leggings with my hack of the Ringer Tee to have a popper neckline.
The resulting outfits look very smart, and have been happily received their new owners.
I even remembered to sew a tag into the leggings to help tell the front from the back!
Because babies cannot be relied upon to keep clean for long, I thought that a couple of dribble bibs in co-ordinating colours would make a good addition to the outfits. These are just triangles of bright quilting cotton, backed with some soft sweat-shirting. I used Prym colour snaps as closures because they come in so many fun colours and designs.
The other bib is just a simple outline, again with snaps to close it. I did a bit of scrap quilting in pretty coordinating fabrics.
I love putting together baby clothes. Its just such a good use of scraps and special fabrics!
