Thank you so much!
Thank you so much for these patterns – and thank you to the OPs too. Delightful and lovely ideas, I’d never have thought of them myself! Really looking forward to digging out the sewing machine
Deborah W. says
I wanted to make the mermaid gown pattern but it’s not free. It cost $9 to get the pattern. Unless I can find a similar gown pattern and copy the tail ends to put on it.
Oh shoot! I didn’t realize you had to buy that one!
Beth Bishop says
Thank you so much for this post as well as all of the others that you do! We already have a number of these – the paperbag princess is one of my all time favorites. I am holding off on getting more right now, but I’m sure Amazon will be getting some of my money soon.
I’ve made that easy baby blanket… the one with the minky dots… a few times, it’s super easy and cute! Very easy and quick gift for a last-minute baby shower.
I love this post! i have been browsing your blog and I have been enjoying it. I am brand new to sewing, so finding simple little projects like this has been wonderful!
Feel free to take a look at my blog if you have time!
Looks great!!! 🙂
Great list.. I’ll gonna try some of the tutorial listed.
t have bin trying to download the car seat canopy but it will not open.
Thanks for the heads up. Fixing that right now.
patricia cramer says
Boy could we use some fabric to keep up with clothing my one yearbold toddler shes alreDy in eighteen months to two year clothing
I love the canopy for the baby carrier, I will be having my first in August and will def have to make one of these. Love your site btw!
Just a head’s up:
I would take the car seat cover off this list. They are not recommended because they compromise the safety of the seat, the fabric isn’t guaranteed to be flame retardant, and it voids the warranty on the car seat.
You should never compromise safety for “cuteness”.
I’ve got a disclaimer on that post so that people realize it voids the warranty. 🙂
Pam Spaur says
I love to make a lot of things for the little ones. Receiving blankets, burp cloths, pacified clips, appliqued onesies, a pack pouch for extra packs. I will try to coordinate into ‘sets’. I have also made bandanna dresses and skirts. So much fun!
Pam Spaur says

I have been trying to sew for a little girl, I do mean little girl who will be 3 this Christmas, Z is my model, and with out your sight I would have no idea how to do something she could wear. Z runs between a 18mo to a 24mo as I said she is about as big around as the circle of your fingers. This sight has helped me to learn some basic sewing for the children in my church, now I am looking at those Burp Clothes for some of our new arrivals. I am a newbie to sewing so I am not that adventures yet.
Thank you for all your crazy ideas and the help you give with them.
