Over the years I've enjoyed sewing things for LP. I love that he thinks I'm some master sewist who can whip up anything he wants. Amongst other things, I've sewn him a toy crocodile (ooo I should share those photos sometime!), a "Backson" (from the Winnie the Pooh movie), a fleecy robe, pants that actually fit his tall and skinny body, and a Thomas the Train pillow that he can't sleep without. But there's something about sewing for a little girl that really has my wheels turning.
Of course, I did a lot of sewing for Eliza's nursery but now that I'm dressing a baby girl every day I have so many things I want to make for her!
So far I've started small (and not too time-consuming as let's face it, I do not have lots of sewing time anymore!) and made her some little boots from a pattern I purchased on Etsy:
First I made these which ended up being too big. When they fit her in a month or two I can picture her wearing them with cute leggings and a tunic top (please excuse the cruddy phone pictures of the first pair of boots!):
Next up I made some black, white and grey boots in the right size:
And here she is modeling them. They're so cozy and cute and stay on her feet!
I'm obsessed with all the little pairs of baby mocassins that you see celebrity babies wearing but I'm not about to shell out that kind of cash for them so I tried making my own out of some soft grey suede I had in my fabric stash:
There are a few little things I'd change about them when I make another pair but I think they're pretty cute too! (These are in the slightly larger size as well so it will be another month or so before Eliza can wear them...)
Gah! So many cute things to sew!! And don't even get me started on baby dolls and doll clothes!
