This summer I wanted to sew gifts for some new arrivals. There's a neighbour that was having her 3rd baby in June. 3 boys! what a handful! My heart went out to her having a newborn at the beginning of summer. All that swaddling in the heat. I was online and found this tutorial from Nap Time Crafters to make a peanut which is easier, faster and cooler than swaddling. I sewed it all up and looked at it and thought. WOW that looks small. I wonder if the baby will fit.
I had a lot of trouble finding fabric that was cotton so it would breath but also with a little spandex for a comfortable stretch. Funny how I went back to my stash to find the perfect fabric except it's in an uninspired colour. Good thing the kids don't care about colour. I learned some new things like how to put in a collar and work with two pull zipper.
They sent me this lovely picture and he even has room to grow. How easily one forgets how small they are.
