Sewing for the Little Guy


I have been doing a little sewing for my grandson, I was just waiting on my serger to get back.  The first one is Kwik Sew 3811 again for a cute onsie

I little label for the sleeve - squirt!


Here is the entire onsie.



Next up a a request from him mom (yes, my daughter!), a sleeper with a zipper.  I had purchased Kwik Sew 1037 on eBay a few years ago and this is just what she wanted

He is wearing 6 months to 9 months sizes depending on the RTW brand.  My choice on this sleeper is 3-6 mos or 6-12 months, I selected the larger size.



I added a tab, so the zipper pull doesn't rub his cute little chin.



It is a cute sleeper but unfortunately, he won't be able to wear it until he is much older.  It is huge!  I am off to make one more with a few inches of length removed.

    1. I ordered it from Australia years ago. From a company named Lamington Labels but I believe they are out of business.

  2. Absolutely adorable! Baby clothes are so much fun to make, just because they're so tiny (and cute).

  4. Oh those are so so cute! I tried making a sleeper, but the cotton knit got all stretched out, it had no recovery at all. Can you share what kind of fabric this is? Does it have much stretch or recovery? I'd be most appreciative :)

  6. Cute sleeper but I'm sure you've noticed that pattern sizing for kids is generally larger than RTW. I remember sewing for my daughters and sewing size 2 child for a couple years - just adding length in bodice and leg areas.
