I love giving handmade gifts and I love little matching layette sets! I made this little set (onesie, pants, booties) for my friend Kenesha’s baby shower. She is expecting a boy! I just LOVE this cute elephant flannel fabric that I found at Joann’s Fabric.
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 my own pattern for the pants. I wanted a wide leg roomy pant. I’ll try to create a PDF of it soon.
If I have time today before the shower (it is tonight) I want to try to sew a matching crinkle taggie toy or burp cloth to go with the set.
Elle's Mom says
this is very sweet ashley! did you have time to make the crinkle toy???
No…I got sidetracked on swimming with Sienna and another project. She LOVED the outfit though 😉 I hope the baby doesn't grow out of it the first day though!
