From the "little stitches for little ones" book, I found some quick outfits I can whip up in a couple of nap times.  This really came in handy as we had a triple baby shower at my work (3 women due within a month).  One girl, one boy, and one as yet unknown!  So I whipped up these three little outfits complete with coordinating taggie blankets.

A kimono top and pants (for the unknown).  This pattern is annoying in that she has you making your own bias tape.  No.  I do not do such things for baby clothing. I do not have time for such fussiness.  Wrights does a perfectly good job with commercially made bias tape, and who am I to question that?


With the taggie.

For the boy, a pair of corduroys (modified the pants from Amy Butler to be longer, added patches on the sides) and an appliqued onesie.

With the taggie.

For the girl, a little jumper dress.  This pattern is funky.  You really have to follow the words, because a) the book is missing the first diagram, and b) the dress is never shown from the front in photos, so you don't even know it has the notch (which is not indicated on the pattern piece, either).  But it's easy once you've done it once (and I've done it three times now!)  It does run small, especially in the neck (or my daughter just has a sizable double chin).

With the taggie.


I'm super impressed with myself for being able to churn out these outfits with not-yet-6-month-old twins.  Nap time is amazing.

These are all adorable. I especially love the kimono outfit. I think it's perfect for an unknown Smiley.

they are all great.  I totally agree with you about the bias tape (I only make my own for very special projects).

I am in awe of your time management skills making these with little twins.
