A few weeks ago, I made McCall’s 5963 from a sweet flannel print.
I tried the pattern again, (view A this time, with the hood) and found it very simple. It was certainly easier the second time around, even with the hood. I even found the yellow fleece in the remnant section of Hancock Fabrics on the day that all remnants were on sale. Can you believe this lovely, snuggly baby bunting only cost $1 to make? My niece will be so pretty in it.
From the same pattern, I made view G for a friend who is having a boy in eight days. (Why am I surrounded by babies?)
McCall’s 6537 is quick and easy. I cut and sewed a diaper cover in under half an hour.
I haven’t made any of the animal faces yet – I suppose that should wait until these babies are walking around, anyway.
It sure is cute in a cupcake print, though:
My advice to anyone attempting this pattern is to attach the bias tape and insert the elastic BEFORE closing the leg holes.
I may not want a baby, but I’m surprised at how much fun I’m having sewing baby clothes. I think it’s a combination of the silly prints I can get away with using and the fact that baby projects can be completed in under an hour – instant gratification is rare when sewing is your hobby.
