I had some baby knits in my stash from a couple years ago when I made some things for my girlfriend's baby so I decided to sew them into something useful this past weekend. I just love this animal print! I used a McCall's pattern and I made it in a larger size so Baby can wear it later. I had a little fabric leftover after making the onesie and I couldn't resist making the adorable hat to match.
My sewing machine is rather old, purely mechanical, and very limited in stitch selection, but I've been playing around with some of the different stitches that I've never used before. I loved the look of this decorative topstitching in red thread! Adds more interest that just a basic straight topstitch I think.
Oh, and in case you are wondering, Hubs and I have decided to wait to find out the gender of our sweet little one until after the birth, so for now we are just calling him/her Baby. I can hardly wait for the surprise!
