2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / I made a sling! on: February 16, 2009 02:17:18 PM
I mostly lurk but I made this sling yesterday and wanted to share. I was so proud of myself hehe.

Please don't mind my awful lounge around the house attire lol.

And here's a shot with my chunky 1 month old. He's nice and snug in there. I had to make a new one as the old one I had used with my other three kiddos was kinda too small for his biggness. LOL

I have a suggestion, though I think the items you have made are ADORABLE! And I would have loved to have someone make my preemie some customized outfits.....When my son was in the NICU he had all sorts of wires, IVs, etc attached to him at all times. So any clothing he wore really needed to have snaps. Zippers were no useful, but snaps or buttons allowed me or the nurses to dress him more easily, and to allow his wires to be placed away from his face. He was actually not "wireless" until he was 6 months old so there were soo many things he was unable to wear during that time. I think the gowns are just soo stinking cute on newborns, but if there was a way for you to make them snap-able, or even have a small tie closure, I think they would be even more practical. Another great item to make, aside from clothing, is lil Incubator covers. If you can put a black and white print (like geometric shapes etc etc) on the inside that will be facing baby, and whatever print you want ont he outside, I know the nurses always appreciate these as the babies get a lil "darktime" since the NICU is always going......And the black and white pics are stimulating.

As for your question on baby legs....my preemie son was  a hefty 4 lbs and he had the scrawniest legs ever. I cannot imagine that baby legs would have worked for him unless they were the size of finger puppets. I would think this lil man is even teenier.

Penlowe- I accept very humbly your apology, which was obviously not even needed as your intent was not at all as I took it. I'm so sorry. I should have just not said anything, I am overly sensitive, we only just found out yesterday that my son will need hearing aids and I guess my sense of humor was not working. Again I am so sorry I bt your head off. I have not really worked with patterns thus far, but I have a few to try. I've only been sewing in my spare time for the last 5 months, and Craftster has been agreat source of information for me! Your are right that there is no drama here, and I am so sorry to have started a bit with you as I should no better. Sorry again!!

Well I guess I should have stated I am no expert in sewing. I thought posting a question here I might be lead in the right direction, not made to feel like an donkey. I never said  I had looked online, I just asked if anyone had anything or knew of a pattern. Apparently, that's not allowed?

SEWLITLETIME- Thanks for your kind response. I have done 0 sewing with patterns so I am still very new to them, I did a general search for patterns for pilot caps and came up with nothing, but had not thought of looking at costumes, thank you. I will give that a try. Also the link you provided is a very good example of exactly what I was trying to find. I had no idea they might also be called coifs. THanks!

My son (20 months) will be getting hearing aids in the next few weeks. I've done some research and found that the Hanna Anderson Pilot caps (http://www.hannaandersson.com/style.asp?from=SC%7C2%7C1%7C156%7C47%7C9%7C%7C&simg=22733_E10) are very popular in keep little ones from yanking their hearing aids out and tossing them. The only problem is that they only come in a very limited number of colors, which are all quite babyish. My son is all "boy" so I'd like to make him a few cute caps to wear out and about that will be more fun. I have tons of fun fabrics ready to go, his head circ is 18 inches, not sure if that helps in any way hehe. Anyone have a good sewing pattern or tute to help me make a few caps? Thanks!!
