And don't feel you have to stick with pretty pastel colors for your fabric choices.
Feel free to have fun with bright, bold, funky prints or subtle neutrals. And because
baby items are often small and/or made with small fabric pieces,
they can be great for using up those small pieces of fabric you may have leftover
from other projects. And making
baby clothes can also be a great way to "repurpose" adult clothing.
And just a word of caution. For safety reasons, when sewing items that a baby is
going to use or handle, don't add any embellishments that could come off and
become a choking hazard (such as buttons).
Sewing Quick Tip:
Did you know that fabrics like flannel, sweatshirt fleece, and satin also have a “nap”
to them (a pile that runs in one direction)? And that you need to use the “with
nap” layout (laying your pattern pieces all in the same direction) for these fabrics
too? Because the naps on these fabrics are so subtle, this may not seem a big
deal. But once the light hits your finished garment, the difference can become
quite obvious with parts of your garment appearing to be different shades. To
determine if your fabric has a nap, run your hand up and down the fabric. If it
feels smoother in one direction, it likely has a nap to it. Also, fold your fabric right
sides together and turn back one corner. If one side looks different than the other,
your fabric probably has a nap to it. If you’re still not sure, lay out all your pattern
pieces in the same direction just to be on the safe side.
