Matching Baby Bib and Onesie

A good friend is having a baby in several weeks. I attended her shower and had fun making this set for her new arrival. 

I made these in size 9 months so they would fit the baby during "short sleeve season". I used the same pattern I used previously here

Baby Onesie and Baby Leggings Gift

A good friend of mine is having her first baby in a few weeks. Her shower was recent and I made these two items for her back in May. I was so excited to finally give them to her!

I made this set using two free patterns. 

I used the Go To Patterns Baby Leggings for the pants (I made the 9-12 month size). I used the Shwin and Shwin bodysuit pattern, size 9 months. 

I stuck with 9 month sizes because I figured she would get a lot of tiny sized clothing for her shower and I also thought my kids wore size 9 months longer than 3 or 6 month sizes. The bodysuit pattern's largest size is 9 months. I've made this pattern before.

Welcome Home and Baby Hats

My husband came back from his 3 week trip to China, so I made him a little sign:

Short Sleeved Lane Raglan and Double Needle Discussion

I am still finishing up a few Lane Raglan shirts. I have mentioned before that I really love this pattern. 

I purchased both the striped and the gold dot fabric at Hobby Lobby. I had a small amount of the gold dot fabric left after making this Lane Raglan.

Travel Phase

A lot of Instagram posts have been about #memademay this month. The goal is to wear handmade clothing every day of May. The past years, I've not had enough handmade clothing to begin to wear one piece every day. I've also not really liked what I've made.

This year is different. I've worn a handmade item every day! I can't believe it. They've all been the recent Lane Raglan shirts I've shared, plus two that haven't been photographed yet. I'm still fooling with the neckline on one of them.

In the meantime, here is a striped long sleeve version I made at the beginning of the month. I didn't think I'd get a chance to wear it much till fall, but it's been cold and I've worn it frequently. I've been attending baseball or t-ball games and practices many evenings.
