New Stuff for Baby
September 6th, 2010 by georgia leigh

So have I mentioned that I’m on the board for Handmade Holidays 2010 over at Sew, Mama, Sew? It has been great fun scouring the interwebs for new tutorials. I can’t take credit for this one because someone else found this, but it is the most adorable thing ever.

The Sweet Pea Pilot Cap Pattern by Sew Liberated.


It is a tad bit big on him, but room to grow is never a bad thing.

For unrelated reasons, I had to measure both his head and Juliet’s head today (she’s 3). It turns out his head is bigger than hers. Yeah. So just for giggles, I put his hat on her.

Look, mom it fits! I think I’ll make her one, too. But in pink.

The reason I fell in love with it in the first place is because it looks SO much like one that Hanna Andersson (seen here) has that I’ve been wanting for years. It turns out it is only $10 (on sale for $6 right now . . .what the cuss? We must have been super-poor to not buy that). Anyhoo, now I can make them for free with scraps of knit that I have piles of. You can too! Just a hint, though. I did not use the stabilizer stuff she recommends. I don’t like going to the fabric store . .

Also I made these shoes for him for the winter (b/c I’m tired of tracking down socks for five kids. These can go without socks.)


The pattern is from I Think Sew. It is in PDF format (sound familiar?) and is only $4. The pattern is great; the instructions – not so much. But she has a lot of cute shoe patterns. If you’ve made shoes before, I say go for it.

Eli thinks they’re more fun to play with. I might have to staple them instead of the velcro.
