The gifts I'm sharing today were made for little cutie Lewis who is about 3 weeks old. One of the things I love about sewing for bubs is choosing fabric with the parents in mind. What would they like? Are they traditionalists (blue/pink), do they love a more unisex style (grey/red), should I go for cute prints or simple patterns like chevrons or polka dots? Everyone is different and every baby gets a unique Sew Delicious gift.
The first part of the gift is my go-to present for most new bubs - a nappy pouch. When I started making these and giving them as gifts I had such good feedback from friends that they were so practical and great for popping out without dragging a huge bag with you, that they have become my standard gift. They are also my best selling item in my etsy shop - you can see the ones I have for sale here.
Next I made a couple of bibs - I find bibs get ruined so when people have a second baby new bibs are always welcome. Anna's bibs were in such a terrible state that I threw most of them out and when Lucy came along she got brand new ones!
I wanted to have different but coordinating fabrics so I chose the Dress Up Days Chevrons from the same Riley Blake range.
To finish the gift set I also made a simple appliqued onesie. I often keep a few plain onesies on hand so a quick gift can be made in minutes if I need to. You can see my tutorial for making appliqued onesies here.
So there you have it! I'm in the process of making a few more fun gifts for some new babies and I will share them soon! Hint - it will involve ruffles!
