Oh Baby!!

So many of our sewing students love to sew baby projects. Who wouldn't?!? Those cute little faces just looking at you saying, "Please, make me something!" So here you go, perfect projects for any cute chubby baby. 

 This blanket teaches you how to miter corners. Making a sharp clean mitered corner isn't as hard as you would think. This is a great project to give to a baby boy or girl.
Choose to add ric rac as a trim or add a decorative stitch.

What baby doesn't try to tear off their bib while they are eating?  This bib is a great solution to that age old problem.  This bib goes over their shoulder and under their arms, making them keep the bib on. Genius, right?!? Learn how to make your own bias tape too!

 Knit baby hats are always a quick project to knit up for a gift. So many patterns are out there just waiting for you to cast on!
We can also teach you how to knit the perfect baby sweater, great for any cold morning. Isn't she the cutest baby?  Perfect little wiggly model!

This Chevron knit blanket is a great way to learn your increases and decreases.  When working a repetitive stitch, it is ingrained in your head.   A great way to learn any new skill.

 Car seat covers are a dime a dozen out there. This one is above the rest!  With a front zipper, top ruffle detail, bands on the edge and toy straps on the inside, I guarantee people will ask you where you bought it.  This is a great project to learn how to install a sports zipper. Try your hand at ruffles and impress anyone! We also have a car seat blanket to coordinate with the cover. This blanket allows the buckles to come through the blanket, making it so you never lose your babies blanket again! You will learn how to add binding to a quilt edge too.

Happy Sewing!
