My entry into Shwin&Shwin’s Link Party sponsored by Appliances Online.


A few weeks ago, I finished this adorable kimono shirt for my friend’s son. The pattern came from Heather Ross’ Weekend Sewing –a book I really like. I have made a few projects from it, and they have all been easy and beautiful.


I got my supplies at Hobby Lobby. Instead of making my own bias tape, I just bought some already made. It was very hard to find cute fabric for a baby boy there, but these polka dots were absolutely adorable.


I am finding sewing for little kids such rewarding projects since they are always so cute and fast. The pattern was very nice, too, and quite easy to sew. The whole thing came together very fast!


This is how I put it together for gift-giving. Cute, isn’t it?

What color combos do you like for boys?

This was a present for a friend’s 1st birthday. It was really easy to make, using three towels for both pieces. The bear bath mitt was sewn from a pattern from Oliver + S’s Little Things to Sew, a book I am absolutely in love with. It was a very easy pattern to follow, and turned out darling.

Ducky Hooded Towel

I made this to give to a baby boy as a shower present, but it works great for older kids. I used this tutorial from Make Baby Stuff.com for the construction, but made mine a duck rather than a frog. It’s a great tutorial. Think of the possibilities!

Baby Girl Gift

I made this cute gift for a friend. It was very simple, using transfer paper and sewing in the skirt (ribbon) and bows for the ballet slippers. The socks are embellished using ribbon that I first ruffled using a gathering stitch, then straight-stitched to the sock. Easy! Cute!
