Using sections of the fabric without the border, cut the chest band piece and the strap pieces:
Sew the bias tape all the way around edges so that each piece of fabric becomes a dress strap.
Step 8: Pin 2 straps to the inside front and pin 2 straps to the inside back of the dress chest band so that they hang about 1/2″ down into the dress. The spacing from the middle will depend on your child’s size, but I pinned Sienna’s 2.75″ from the middle for the front and 2.25″ from the middle for the back.
I used a gerber onesie and added the elephant applique. (see my applique tutorial)
I LOVE booties! These are the first ones I have made and they were really simple. I used the 3-Seam Footies pattern from New Conceptions. My friend Emily likes the kimono baby shoes from Homespun Threads. She uses felt for the soles which is a cute idea.
I made these little crinkle tag toys last night using the tutorial at Joy’s Hope. Such a cute and easy idea for a baby present! I’m going to a baby shower tomorrow for my two friends Monique and Seena and I’m so excited to give these to them!
I made these cute little shorts but they seemed so plain that I added the little lace border at the bottom. I love the lace so much I’m going to have to find more! Don’t you think the shorts look dainty now?
