A little sewing
I made this baby dress a few nights ago as a gift. It was a kit from little fish big pond on etsy. The fabric sold me on it immediately, but I'll likely make more in the same style with different fabric from my quilting stash. Only thing I'd do differently next time would be using smaller ribbon or fabric bias binding for the ties. For such a little baby dress, this ribbon width seems gigantic. Girls are so much easier to gift with clothes. I knitted a green baby hat a few weeks ago, but forgot to take a photo... may post photo eventually after my friend's baby comes. It will look much better with a model... I'm feeling more and more like sewing, so perhaps some more dresses, quilts, or stuffed animal dolls are on the way. There's certainly enough babies around here to which this all can be gifted!
