A little something for a little someone

I have a dear young mom in my life. She is newly married with a 11 week old baby boy. He is my "grandbaby" and I love him to pieces. I made the little baby coverall out of a double sided faux suede/sherpa piece of fabric I bought years ago to make a dress coat for a daughter. The pattern called for two pieces of fabric sewn right sides together then turned right side out. Since this was a double sided coat fabric, I just too a matching boyish stirped knit and cut some binding on the bias (so the stripes would be slanted) and bound the edges. Easy peasy sewing project for Ottobre Autum 2003

I will see him this weekend. Can't wait to give him his new "coat"!

I also made this little shirt for him. It is a Ottobre too but I don't remember which issue. It is to be a knit but I used a fleece remnant I found for about a dollar at Joann's.

I have a few pieces laid out to make a couple tops for me and a skirt to hem so better get busy. Snow is falling here in Mid-Ohio, everyone is safely at home, supper is over, dishes are done and I am ready to sew!

Monday evening blessings-

  1. I just read this because I saw a post of yours on facebook.
    Jackson loves his coat! It's perfect because it is really easy to put on and it is big enough for him to wear shoes and a hat underneath!
    You are so creative and beautiful!
    I love you :D
