Let’s all be honest with ourselves. Everyone’s favorite section of the store is the one with the baby clothes and shoes. We all love piecing together adorable little outfits for the little ones, including those of us (like me) who don’t have little ones we are responsible for clothing. For those of you who actually are preparing to bring a baby into the world, we here at AllFreeSewing want to bring the cuteness to you. We are pleased to announce our giveaway of Sew Baby, a wonderful book filled to the brim with easy sewing projects for you to surround your newborn with the softness and cuddliness you’ve always imagined.
Choly Knight’s Sew Baby is the perfect book for any family-member-to-be. Maybe you’re a new parent who is looking to provide your child with the necessities. Or perhaps you’re going to be an aunt, uncle, or even a sibling and you’re in the market for the most perfect baby shower gift known to man. No matter the role you will play in the life of the new bundle of joy, your DIY baby gift is sure to be a hit. Sew Baby is chock full of brilliant tutorials to show you how to make a bib, DIY baby toys, and more.
Before you even make it to the first chapter, the author will walk you through the basics of sewing so everyone can get the most out of her patterns. What’s more, she even labels her projects in accordance with the difficulty level so you can judge best which projects to start with.
My personal favorite part of Sew Baby, which I’m guessing will be yours too, is the final section. At the end of her book, Knight provides her readers with a pattern for every single project. Photo copy the patterns to scale and use them to measure your fabrics with absolute precision. Stick to Sew Baby and there will be nothing standing between you and do-it-yourself baby clothes that grab everyone’s attention.
Whether you’re looking for easy sewing projects to make your child a pair of slippers or you need an easy baby blanket pattern, you will find what you need within the pages of Sew Baby. Leaf through the patterns to decide where you want to start. Perhaps you want to make a bib and will start with the Cottony Clean Bib tutorial. Maybe instead you’re interested in sewing DIY baby toys and will first make some Forest Friends Hand Puppets. For those who want to make DIY baby clothes, you’re also in good hands. You could make your first project Fuzzy Menagerie Character Hats or Sweet Bottoms Baby Bloomers.
No matter what you sew, there’s no doubt that your adorable gift for that adorable baby will please.
