sewing for baby
What’s cuter than a baby wearing handmade leggings? A baby wearing handmade leggings with a coordinating handmade onesie! We’ve grown to love making clothes for the littles ones in our lives because they’re perfect stash busters and most projects can be easily made in under an hour. Using just one yard of your favorite knit fabric and our free pattern, you’ll be able to sew two onesies in no time! Bonus: these make great baby shower gifts!
They’re cute, they’re easy, they’re inexpensive: what’s not to love about handmade baby hats?

After many (we may have lost count!) customer requests for the perfect swaddle fabric, we are excited to introduce Spoonflower’s Organic Sweet Pea Gauze! From cuddly receiving blankets to beach cover-ups, our newest natural addition to the Spoonflower lineup is a 100% organic cotton double gauze fabric. You may have heard it referred to as muslin or cheesecloth. This gauze crinkles when washed, resulting in a breathable, textured fabric perfect for swaddling. For the best look and softest feel, we recommend keeping designs light and scattered. See how to make the most of your gauze in this helpful care video.
