They look like little shirts, but they are a wonderful size for a newborn, and up to a 3 or 4 month old baby. They swim on them at first of course, but they are cuddly, warm, and cozy. I personally love a nightgown on little babies as you spend soo much of your time changing them, and this makes it quick and easy. A little undershirt, some booties, and you are all set.
I think this one is my favorite. There was no pattern peice for the neck so I just used bias tape, but I didn't think of adding the piping uptil I was almost finished making them all so only the last two got it. Too bad because I think it finished them off nicely, plus it boys them up a little as well I think.
This guy is a little plain, but I think it looks soft and sweet.
I LOVED this John Deere fabric
. Sooo cute. Had to have one with cows now didn't I?
Love the polka dots, but hope this isn't a tad "girly"??
I LOVE this....there is a fabric that says I love Grandma and it is taking everything in me not to go get it!
More John Deere....there is A LOT of really cute John Deere fabric
I LOVE this one too....it might be my very favorite I can't make up my mind, haha
There is a really pretty blue fabric with tiny little trains all over it that I want REALLY badly too, but I am going to resist for now. I need to make Capri & Donatella their sundresses today so that I will be ready to start all the babies bedding next week. There were NO instructions to make this nighgown, and no markings for the button holes etc., which was a little tricky for this by the instructions kind of gal, but I am pleased how they turned out. I did want to thank God, and all of you for your prayers for this new little life. Melody has reached the half way mark as she is 20 weeks already. She saw her doc yesterday and had the big ultra sound where they measure and check everything. I am happy to report that all is good. He is doing just great, and the doc is still saying he really doesn't anticipate any problems. Once she reaches 24 weeks (which is around the corner now) he will begin watching her much closer as this is when some issues could develop. Your continued prayers are sooo appreciated. Melody & Mike watched yesterday as their little baby yawned, and swam around soo sweetly. How wonderful is it that they have this way of checking and seeing things now. She got some 3-D pictures of the little guy which this grandma is hoping she figures out some way of posting as she does not have a scanner. I soo want to see them!
This week-end will be busy. We have a graduation party on Sat., and a couple of other small things to do as well, so I imagine this time off will fly by. My husband has had a long, busy week himself, and I know he is looking forward to just kicking back.
I do want to take this time as well to thank all of our men and women who soo selflessly serve this wonderful country. We can NEVER thank you enough for all you have done and are doing that enable all of us to live enjoying the freedoms that we do. I pray that the Lord blessed the United States, and all of you as well!.
Hope you have a wonderful, and safe week-end!
Just couldn't resist showing you this darling little pic of these grandkids enjoying a butterfly exibit at the Wild
Animal park in San Diego with their parents. Apparently they provide the kids with butterfly costumes to wear while they are seeing the butterflys. Soo fun!
