A few more projects from Lotta Jansdotter’s Simple Sewing for Baby -
I used the bib shape from Lotta’s book, but used flannel for the backing and did some simple quilting on each. I love the patchwork look! These were made for my cousins who both had baby boys a month after Max was born.
And of course I couldn’t resist the cute little giraffe rattles from her book – I used some great Ink & Spindle fabrics and a couple lovely hand printed fabrics from Kalla.
I thought Max would look cute in some bloomers this summer, but didn’t take into account how big he’d get, or how much larger I should have made them to accommodate his cloth diapers! So while cute, he never got to wear them (which is unfortunately also the case for a lot of his other clothing!).
And the last project from Lotta’s book – a tag blanket. Max loved sucking on the ribbon ears of his giraffes, so I thought he might really like one of these blankets.
And indeed he does!
So if you count the swaddler I made earlier, which was also a pattern in this book, I think I made a total of 5 things from this book, which must surely be a record for me!
