Babylegs!!!

 

I broke out my sewing machine after a LONG break - at least six years!  I followed this tutorial:  http://littlenannygoat.blogspot.com/2009/03/babylegs.html.  It was SEW easy!  (Pun intended)  Even after having not sewn in so long, the first pair of baby legs only took me about 30 minutes.  Now that I've done it once I doubt it will take more than 10 or 15 minutes the next time.  The only thing that would have made the project better would have been if I had old knee socks around the house to re-purpose.  I didn't so my mom found knee socks at the dollar store for me.

I FINALLY started my first pair of longies for this baby last night! I haven't been crocheting much because my arm/wrist issues have been bothering me. But since all of the relaxin has decided to wreak havoc on my pubic joint instead, I managed to get them started. I just need to do the gusset and legs and they'll be done. :D

I don't even have it in my to finish the soaker I started- I think Ive knitted about 4 (including the one still on needles).  There is some serious slacking going on here!

UGH! I read the sizing wrong and these longies are WAAAAAY too big (size starts at 11lbs. My biggest has been 7lbs...God help me if this kid is 11lbs, lol). So I need to scrap them, find a pattern for NEWBORN longies to crochet, and start over.

Does anyone have a link to a free onesie pattern? I bought a pattern packet from JoAnns, but the instructions are so freakin' complicated and require interfacing and whatnot... I've never seen a onesie with interfacing before! Silly.

I don't have a onesie pattern, but I did find this newborn gown pattern that I am going to try my hand at soon.  It looks pretty easy.

i've never used interfacing in my life, even when it calls for it. and any kind of simplicity patterns or whatever, i always find the instructions to be *worthless*. I cut out the pattern pieces, look at the picture of how its supposed to turn out.. and then just kinda wing it. Put it together like a puzzle. Is it a lap tee style onesie? Because I've made a couple of those and I find making lap tees disorienting as heck! If it is, I bet you could google "lap tee tutorial" and find better instructions somewhere. I don't think I would have been able to do the lap tee without following close instructions.

Thanks for the help, girls. I have seen that tutorial, so cute! I might try it. 

 

The pattern I have is not only lap tee, but it also is 'kimono style' with snaps up the sides... I just want a pattern to make a simple onesie so I can use up my fabric stash instead of buying them. shrug.gif
