You know I love sewing for babies, right? I know it’s been a bit since I’ve made anything — but there’s a new baby in town! That always spurs me to make something. It’s really how I got back into sewing. I was pregnant with my daughter (who just turned 16!) and got the itch to make a few things – a crib set and such. It wasn’t long after that that I started my blog and business. So anytime I have the opportunity to sew for babies I get to work!! This green denim Divided Basket and Diaper Pouch gift was my most recent baby gift I made!
I loved picking out fabrics for this one! The Divided Basket was chosen after seeing some of the nursery pictures, so hopefully it’ll feel right at home with some diapers and lotions tucked in. I upped the personalization factor with adding an initial stamped leather tab like in the last one I made. I did skip the front pocket – so that’s always an option for an extra speedy sew!
And you have to know this diaper pouch is also a must-give gift. I can’t tell you how many I’ve made over the years, but it’s such a quick sew and a fun opportunity to use beautiful fabrics. It’s perfect to slip into any bag for when you need to get out of the house quick. Also makes it really easy to pass off to a diaper changing helper at any time!
I’m so happy for my friend and her beautiful baby! It’s always such happy news!
