Baby Boy Gift Set: Cars and Trucks
So it kind of seems like all the sewing I've been doing lately has been for baby gifts. If you are sick of it, I'm sorry but you'll have to bear with me a little longer because there are a few more in the works. If you are like me and have lots of friends having babies, then I hope you are able to get some good ideas.
Sewing for babies is also a little less intimidating then sewing for an adult because you don't have to worry as much about fit... no curves and such. Also I think babies and kids just look so darn cute in handmade clothes.
Recently we had a mini shower for two friends of mine who were both having boys, so I had to come up with something that was cute but not too difficult since I was going to have to do it times two. I had bought extra of the cars and trucks fabric that I had used for the boy romper. I was very excited to use it again, and thought it would be so cute to use one of the cars as a center piece on a onesie.
I also made some matching pants to go with it. I used a pair of pants from my baby girl as a guide for size. I wanted to do something a little more creative so I made them into drawstring pants. I liked the fact that this made the pants size a little more adjustable.
I used the leftover vintage bias tape from my Orange Sherbet Tee as the drawstring, and I think it coordinates just perfectly.
I sewed up a coordinating bib to go with it, and I had a cute little outfit.
Stay tuned for the second boy gift set, and a tutorial to follow. :)
