sew baby {quick change trousers}

sewing
Some of my favorite sewing is for babies. Cute fabrics, sweet little patterns and almost instant gratification - little projects just come together so quickly. In March I sewed up a storm for this little girl. I checked out Handmade Beginnings from the library and made the little hoodie. The pattern and directions were easy to follow and I loved how it turned out. So... I checked the book out again to sew for another little girl.

This time I landed on the Quick Change Trousers. A cute little pair of reversible pants, perfectly made for pairing a couple cute fabrics. And aside for being designed for a quick change on baby, these are quick to sew up. I used a Heather Ross print in pink from my favorite line - Mendocino. And a tan, small whale corduroy was the perfect match.

The 'B' side might be a bit on the busy side, but I still think it's cute. But even cuter still... these little booties. {tend to be a go-to baby project for me} For these I went a little more modern with the fabric choices - a little less "baby". And I got to use fabric from my tiny little stash.

I wrapped these two items up in fabric with sock monkeys on pogo sticks and brought them over to the little girl - almost 7 weeks old already! I soaked up some time with the sweet family while I could. They move in a week.

The next book I got out of the library...{Wee Wonderfuls}. Good thing I know a few little girls.

Happy sewing!
