We welcomed a new nephew into the family earlier this month -- yay!! I'm so excited, but very bummed that they're too far away to visit in the near future. I'd love to get in on some newborn snuggles, but since I can't, I sewed and knitted up an outfit in which he could be snuggled.
I love, love, love baby gowns (and soaker sacks) and was looking forward to trying out the Rockin' Baby Gown tutorial. I used yardage instead of upcycling a tee, but the only difference that made was that I had to hem the little foldover mitt flap.
I also used the ribbed neckline variation, but didn't think the exposed serging was really my sister-in-law's style, so did it the regular way and top-stitched with a zigzag.
This may very well be my new go-to baby gift.
I also knitted a wee hat. Both things seemed impossibly tiny!
And then I got geekily excited when we found this perfectly matching card. *sigh* I do adore all things matchy-matchy.
