Maybe you've seen my other baby clothes creations, well this pair is grandmother-approved. My mom practically flipped when I showed them to her. I made them using this tutorial, only I don't know how big he'll be (I was just over 5 lb and DH was over 11) so I skipped the elastic and used leftover trim for a drawstring. And I plan to make a zillion more, though not so cutesy. He's gotta have a healthy mix.

Great job!  I wrote the RookieMoms tutorial-- and you've blown me out of the water. I've got a sweater set aside for some boyish pants, but 10 more days to find out if my unborn is a boy or girl.  The sweater is brown with blue trim - totally cute, but not cutesy, for a baby boy.

You wrote that?! You're my hero. I spent like 10 minutes searching for the link to post because I didn't want to just say "a tutorial on here somewhere." It's SUCH a great tut and so much easier than the way I did it for the skull pants in the first link.
Congrats on the baby too!

Those are really sweet!  How did you do the sheep?  Is it an applique?

Also, I don't want to come across as paranoid, but I think there's some federal standard that says children's clothing (under some age?) shouldn't have strings longer than some length because it presents a choking/strangulation hazard.  Ah, after much searching, here's a link:  http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/pubs/208.pdf

Of course, I have no room to talk, since I'm using an antique crib for my daughter, and it doesn't meet some of the modern guidelines (has corner posts, etc.).  So, we all make our own compromises.   Smiley  I just wanted to mention it, in case you weren't aware of it.  (The parenting learning curve is a steep one!)

Yes, the sheep is an applique. I buy them when I see ones I like and keep them in a drawer. I dug through that til I found something that went with light blue. I plan to re-do the strings, that's just what I had leftover in my scrap bin from trim on a tank top. It's too thick to tie any shorter than that.

That is so cute!! It's so hard to figure out what size clothes you'll need. I know some newborn clothes you totally skip if they turn out to be bigger. Shoes can especially be hard to guess. I had some really cute tiny things I never got to use!! It's so fun to sew for your baby though! You'd be amazed what type of things will work for boys or girls. Especially pants. Good work and have a super pregnancy and new child.

Those are so adorable!

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.
