I don't have a baby anymore. My husband says we won't have any more. I'm resigned to that (ahem... kinda), but that doesn't stop me from having baby envy. Often. For soooo many reasons. Just now I have baby envy for the sewing. Yes, the sewing! Expecting a baby, having a baby, is an endless licence for adorable projects in eeny, teeny, doable sizes. Since I only "discovered" sewing last summer, I missed my opportunity to sew for my own little one. Pout.
Today two of my favorite blogs are posting enticing sewing tutorials for baby. Anna Maria Horner is showcasing some "little luxuries" created from her delectable new lines: Folksy Flannel and Little Folks voile. Her simple baby blankets steal my heart with those fabrics. I can't post her pictures here, but you must go see! Sadly, I cannot think of something I ought to make for myself in these gorgeous prints. Grrr.
Meg at Sew Liberated posted a much-anticipated pilot cap pattern for baby. Her chubby little Finn just makes the look, doesn't he? There's also a tutorial on Dana-Made-It for a basic baby envelope shirt called the 90 minute shirt. Meg made a matching pilot cap/envelope shirt combo, which looks so sweet on Finn.
So, all of you expecting mamas, don't miss your chance! Sew for your baby and create some heirlooms especially worth treasuring for years to come.
