Baby Clothes!

Thanks to everyone who congratulated my family on the birth of Thadeus! I'm still on cloud nine and I can't wait until the weekend to see him. :o)

I've been sewing up a storm only it hasn't been quilting at all. I've been making baby clothes! I used to make baby clothes when I was a teenager with the thought of selling them. Like most of my get rich schemes, that plan failed. But I still have all of my baby clothes patterns.

So far I've made: a 6mths jacket, 6mths sleeper, 12 mths pants, swaddling blanket, and two hats.

I also have cut out a 0-3mths sleeper, 0-3mths pants, 6mths pants, and two bibs.

If I manage to get all that put together I have plans to make at least one more bib and then applique some onesies and maybe some booties.

I'd also like to make myself a totebag to take to the city. I'm not sure what design or colors I'll use yet though.

I haven't taken any pictures of the clothes I've finished yet so I'll get that done in the next couple days. And just so this isn't a picture"less" post here's my new favorite picture of Thadeus. :o)
Monkey toes!

I need to be sewing baby clothes for my new grandson that is due in Dec. - Did you have the patterns? I can't wait to see what you have made. I just love to visit you. I am enjoying my towel and potholder also. Thank you again.
