Finally, I’m nearing the end of my baby sewing list, and not a bit too soon with my due date being in nine days! Here’s the latest sewing project for the June boy; five organic knit rompers.
I used this romper pattern from Etsy and I really liked it; it’s easy to follow and made an incredibly cute romper! I made all five in size 0-3 months. These will be just perfect for our crazy hot summer days.

The fabrics are the same from my other previous baby layette post; a mix of organic knit prints and solids from birch plus a couple solid organic knits from my stash. I just love these fabrics and am so glad to have gotten so many layette pieces out of the small amount of yardage I had bought!
I seriously can’t pick a favorite color combo. Mineral with elk?
Taupe with feathers?
Teal with darling gold bugs?
Or how about cream with mint bugs?
Ok, ok, I can pick a favorite. I love the midblue with coral feathers. Swoon!
I think that’s it for baby clothes, well, in the newborn – 3 month size at least. Any bets on whether or not I can get a baby blanket done for this kid before he appears? 😉
Can you believe it’s May already? I sure can’t! Time is really just flying by and I still have so much left I want to get sewn for my June boy. Thankfully I managed to knock out a bunch of clothing for him these past couple weeks.
First up is a set of seven wrap shirts in size 0-3 months sewn from several different knits using a self drafted pattern. The fabrics are Birch solids in mineral, midblue and teal, Birch bugs print in gold and mint, plus a dark taupe organic knit and a mint knit from my stash. I used an organic cream knit as the binding for all of the tees.
Here’s a look at how the shirt wraps on. The closures are size 15 metal snaps from Snapsource. I love tiny metal snaps! They add such a professional look to the finished garment. The tabs are .5″ cream twill tape from Jo-Ann’s .
Next up are three sleep-gowns plus three adorable knot hats.
The gowns were sewn using this free and totally awesome newborn gown pattern. For the fabrics I used Birch knits elk grove in color shroom, and feathers in colors coral and mineral. For the binding I used the same cream organic knit as the wrap tees.
Elastic bottoms for easy diaper changes!
The knot hats were sewn using this free pattern here. I love this hat pattern! It’s so insanely quick, easy, and satisfying to sew up! For the fabrics I went with the three that would provide the most matching between all the pieces I made, so I chose to use Birch bugs in gold, feathers in coral, and the organic cream knit from my stash. They really do match everything!
Each shirt matches at least two of the hats. This one matches all three! Things like this make me happy :). Does anyone else get a thrill out of creating a bunch of pieces that all match each other or is it just me?
Yay for getting this kid some clothing sewn! On to the next baby project!
