My lovely new friend just became a grandmother again. Her new granddaughter was born on the last day of our sewing class at Sassy Southern Sewing School (read about the sewing school HERE and HERE). I wanted to thank her for teaching a wonderful class at the sewing school, and to congratulate her for her new grandbaby. My go-to baby gift is Baby Mitts & Caps. The tutorial is available HERE. The mitts and caps sew up really quick.
There is also a new big sister in my friend’s family. When gifting for a new baby, I like to include the big sister or brother too – no reason to leave them out, especially when the perfect little girl gift is a Summer Surprise Dress. The dress sews up super quick and can be made to coordinate with the Baby Mitts & Caps.
Both patterns use knit fabrics. The blue floral jersey knit fabric was bought from Mabel Madison. This fabric is amazing to work with and it washes up softer every time while still keeping the bright colors. It is Pink Rosette in Blue made by Verhees.
The Baby Mitts Tutorial is featured HERE. And the Baby Caps Tutorial is featured HERE.
I think the little dress and the little mitts & caps are perfect for the girls.
And don’t you think handmade gifts are most special? I do.
