Baby Bloomers

I made these little baby bloomers this week in anticipation of the birth of my new niece or nephew arriving within a month! Wooo hoooooo!!! I can't wait (either can my sister, I'm sure)!! I already have one adorable (and hilarious) little niece and am so thrilled to add one more to the list.

My sister and bro-in-law are keeping the gender of the baby a surprise. With that in mind, I chose neutral baby-ish colors. Although, I have to say, I'm pretty stoked about sewing some ultra-girly or ultra-boyish items once he/she is born!

These were super quick to whip up, and by the third pair it felt like I could do them with a cup of coffee in my hand. The pattern is from Lotta's Simple Sewing for Baby book. Great ideas in the book, I highly recommend it. I think my favorite pair is the yellow elephants. I just think the fabric is precious!

I've linked this post to Metamorphasis Mondays at Between Naps on the Porch , Just Something I whipped up at the Girl Creative , Sunday Showcase and Its So Very Creative. Check them out!


  1. Oh my, these are so so cute. I'm sure the baby and parents would love them.

    I know that they're baby size, though the picture makes them seem adult size. Which would be so cool as well :D

  2. Haha, yeah they do look pretty big in the pic! I wish I had a baby around to model them! :)

  3. Very cute - love the fabric (and am just picturing chubby little baby legs - pregnant woman getting clucky again!).

  4. i never know how to 'reply' to blog comments.
    first, just wait until i see you. it will be way long. second, i know right, the gum is disgusting and amazing! third, woo cubs. lastly, you would make these ADORABLE baby bloomers. maybe i should hire you to make all my clothes.

  5. Is there anything cuter than baby bloomers you may ask?? Why, yes, yes there is... baby bloomers with elephants of course!!
