This pattern has been on my list for some time now, even before we found out we were having a baby. I adore teeny tiny baby clothes, and when you can make some of those items yourself? Even better!
These are the Quick Change Trousers from Anna Maria Horner’s Handmade Beginnings book. And can I just say — what a fabulous pattern! They come together so quickly and look so professional when finished (which is not usually the case when I sew clothing!)
I started out with this cute pair as a test – selecting fabrics that happened to be still be sitting out on the coffee table from an order from Sew Fresh Fabrics (I won’t tell you how long they’d been there!) I love that Lizzy House print, and it happened to match quite well with the Kona Paprika I had ordered at the same time. For the inside, I used up a bit of leftover white flannel. I know, perhaps not too practical!
For the second pair, I decided the baby needed a little Flea Market Fancy in his life, so I went with a couple of the green prints from the line. The green seeds are paired with a fun brown print from Tula Pink’s Nest line, and for the reverse, I paired the FMF green daisy dots with a lime green Essex linen.
I figured I’d stop at two pairs, knowing that he’s sure to grow out of them way too fast, but after ordering these cute Tip Top elephants from Hawthorne Threads this week, I just couldn’t resist. I went with just two fabrics for this pair – the elephants paired with Kona Eggplant, with the reverse for the inside.
Now I just can’t wait to see them on the baby!
