I already had a couple of knit items made, so I added bloomers to go with the dress. I had never made these before but they were easy enough as long as I remembered to pull the elastic as I sewed. (Pattern here and bloomer instructions here.)
I made a dress to go with the knit diaper cover. It’s reversible which makes it all the more fun. I love the criss cross it makes in the back. I did have to make it slightly bigger to fit a Cabbage Patch Kid sized doll. I believe I printed it at 120% and then I made the straps longer.
Then I found the easiest tutorial on making little diapers using felt and velcro. You could easily make these without a sewing machine using stick-on velcro or hand stitching it on. But wait…you can’t have diapers without some wipes, right? I saw this idea on Pinterest, and put my pinking shears to work. Again easy, and oh, so cute!
I had originally planned on putting the gifts into some kind of diaper bag, but I just couldn’t find the “right” one, and I didn’t think I would have time to make one. I found a small flannel remnant that was perfect for a little blanket. A little bias tape and some pink fabric I already had, and not only did I have a blanket (and cute name tag), but something to wrap everything in!
I seriously think this is my most favorite birthday gift I’ve ever given. It all came together so easily, and I had so much fun making everything. You should see my Pinterest Sewing board. I have so many plans for making little doll clothes and accessories for Emma G’s babies!
Linking up with Jennifer @ Studio JRU for Sneak Peek Friday. Lots of creativity to see over there on Fridays!
