pale pink patchwork


Thanks for all the lovely comments and congratulations on our baby news! We’re excited to be having another, and hope that Max will be happy to have a sister (the jury’s still out at the moment!).


I’ve been having fun pulling out some of my pink fabrics to sew up a few things for the new baby. First up? A quilt out of those pretty peachy prints I used for a pillow cover recently. I loved the combination so much that I cut up the few remaining pieces I had.


There wasn’t enough for an entire patchwork baby quilt, so I surrounded the patchwork section with some flax colored linen and a few remaining printed pieces.


Of course I also had to make up a few pairs of quick change trousers (from Anna Maria Horner’s book)… pink pigs, and some fun Nani Iro, complete with metallic silver dots. Max has gone through quite a few pairs of QCTs, so I’m quite certain we’ll get lots of use out of these.


And another item that’s been getting lots of use around here – bibs! I like the pattern from Lotta Jansdotter’s Simple Sewing for Baby, though I enlarge it just a bit overall. These are backed with organic terrycloth and quilted with some straight lines.

Even though many of the things I made for Max are still useable, it’s fun to add a few new pieces to the mix! I’m looking forward to making up a few dresses – any favorite baby patterns? I have a few Oliver + S patterns (I can’t currently find them, but I know I have them somewhere!) and I think I’m going to need Rae’s Pierrot Tunic and Geranium Dress for sure. Would love to hear your favorites if you have any!
