Today I’m taking part in a mini tour to celebrate the arrival of Sara’s (from Made by Sara) new baby. Congratulations Sara!
I tend to try and make gifts that I think will be fairly practical so first up a little bandana bib. I used the free pattern that is available on my site but printed it a 90% it’s original size to make it a little smaller for a new baby. The fabric used is a soft cotton jersey and some cotton batting for the backing as I couldn’t find any fleece.
For the t-shirt pattern I used the Ziggy top pattern by Made-it patterns. It’s a firm favourite for new baby gifts (I used it to make these gifts too) as it’s such a quick and easy sew – and I always seem to leave these things to the last minute. The good news is I’ve got two copies of the pattern to give away so if you’d like a chance to receive please leave a comment below and/or over on my instagram account where I’ll give the other copy away.
( I’ll pick a winner by random so any comment will do!)
I made almost the same set of clothes for my college friends new baby last month adding a pair of soft jersey pants using a free pattern by Nosh.
There are lots of other posts with ideas for new baby gifts (for Sara). The links are below:
