Baby boy clothes

I have two girls and am done having babies. So, having a friend who is pregnant with a boy, due next month, is a joy.  I relished the opportunity to make some tiny boy clothes!

I made this wee baby jacket from the Ottobre Winter 2006 issue.  It is pattern number 2, the Wraparound jacket.  It is made from the softest fleece I have ever seen.  It is double sided!!  I also made pattern number 4, the Baby Bonnet, to match but gave it to my friend already.  I will get a picture of it the next time I see her.  Her baby is due next month so I hope he gets to wear them this winter!

The father of this boy loves fishing and hockey, so I appliqued some Carter's onesies myself.   My sewing machine went a little wonky on me, and the stitching on the hockey puck and stick show that, but I think they came out well enough to still give to her.

Peas in a pod!

I got to try out this pattern before it was released.  It is really easy to make and super cute!  I made it a few weeks ago but have not blogged about it because I was waiting to give it to a friend at her shower.  So, here it is, the Peas in a pod from Tiedyediva's pattern.  Super cute, huh?  I lucked out and found this fleecy-type fabric on the remnant rack at Joann's.  I was not sure what to put inside because the mama I gave it to is super crunchy and I did not want to put anything unhealthy inside.  So, I ended up with some cellophate wrap that came with Fabric Fairy fabric and a wee kitty collar bell.  I figured the kitty collar bell is small enough, and packed inside the batting so well, that a teething baby could possibly get to the metal.  And the other two peas have cellophane packed inside.  So, two peas go crinkle and one goes ding!  Heehee!
