This weekend I will be attending my good friend Laura’s baby shower. 🙂 She has been a friend since high school and was in my wedding. I want her to have something extra special, so I decided to sew something for her and her-baby-to-be-born. The Watered with Love Layette was what I settled on! It is a layette set pattern with a baby gown with sleeves you can turn to cover little hands, hat and t-shirt. I just made the gown. The first gown is made from an upcycled tee- it was so soft it screamed to be used for a baby! I didn’t end up with enough fabric for the little hat, so I just sewed up the gown in a size 0-3months. I loved it so much I sewed up another one in a different print with little puppies on it! It really didn’t take too long to sew up and it turned out pretty cute- but I may be biased!
When my children were tiny I loved little gowns and how easy they made diaper changes. I am going to make up some booties, too. I just need to decided what kind I am going to make…you might get to see those, too!
