After cutting out in October, I finally got to the last thing on my to do list for fall's KCWC. What can I say, I'm always a bit ambitious.
I love Growing up Sew Liberated and wanted to make something for the new babe from it. So I thought I'd try my hand at some more knits (now that I have my new machine with all it's fancy knit stitches! yay!) And made up a baby sleep sack (or a sleep gown as I like to call it) hehe.
It was super quick and easy (thank you new machine!) And it was actually my first time making a shirt with those cross over shoulders. They always intimidated me for some reason, I think a fear I'd sew it backwards, but nope, super easy!
The smallest size is a 0-6 months, which on my 5 week old, is just about perfect in length (I'm not sure how tall he is but I'm guessing taller than I think!) The neck is a bit wide, so I think it I make another, I'll lengthen this size and I figure he'll grow into the neck!
As I suspected, the sack (while a bit of a pain to put on) is super handy for quick diaper changes at night (boy do I look forward to the day when I don't have to change him multiple times at night!)
