baby sewing

I stocked up a few months ago on flannels when they were on sale at Joanns, buying a few yards of boyish flannels but not knowing what I was going to do with them. Today I made a few things out of one of the yards for Bubba. The set includes a kimono jacket from the Bettsy Kingston Kimono Wrap Pattern

The amazing free pattern takes only about an hour to do, has french seems, and comes in 3 lengths. I did the jacket length, so I can layer it over a onsie and pair with plain pants.

Of course, if I have a jacket, I have to make stardust shoes cloth shoes that match! This has to be one of my all time favorite patterns for babies. I found the tutorial when Rena was a baby, and made her a ton. For this pair, instead of bonded fleece, I quilted the flannel with fleece and the lining to make a thicker, soft bottom.

Of course, I had a few scraps left after doing these two projects, and decided to try my hand at peepee teepees!

These totally make me giggle. I saw them in Motherhood Maternity a while ago and thought, hey, those would  be super easy to do... I might post the tutorial later, but basically I cut out big circles of the flannel, then the same size in felt that I had laying around, cut the circles in half to make cones and, well, here they are!
