This green and blue polka dot fabric has been one of my favorites to use for boy things. I bought around 3 yards of it and have used it to make diaper bags, burp cloths, bibs, t-shirts and much more. Finally I have used it down to the last piece. It makes me sad to see it gone. Who knew you could become so attached to a certain print of fabric! :)

Any sports fans out there? This had become one of my most popular sports fan baby sets! I also have a Bama baby set and a Saints fan set, so let me know if you have a favorite team and I will design a set for you. The pawprint applique and the Varsity font are free from http://www.sewforum.com/.

I love this flower applique from http://www.lynniepinnie.com/. It is very cute for little girls. The short sleeve shirt was for a big sister (I did an onesie for the baby to match, but forgot to take a picture) and the sleeveless shirt was for my niece. The polkadot fabric is from Hobby Lobby and looks fantastic with this applique.

I LOVE this blue seersucker and had been trying to figure out what I could make with it for the boys. For Cooper I finally decided on a pair of shorts with a applique sailboat t-shirt. For Carter I went with a simple jon-jon with red initials. Both the shorts and the jon-jon patterns are very simple sewing and are great for the beginner sewer. For the jon-jon I did something different this time. I altered the pattern and added snaps to the bottom. It was a first for me, and I was excited that it actually worked!! The pattern calls for a closed bottom, but snaps make is ALOT easier for diaper changes!
If anyone wants an easy first time jon-jon pattern it is the Martha Pullen pattern in her yellow applique book. (it comes with a girls a-line dress pattern and an apron pattern also.)
