Babies on the way

There are at least 4 babies that I know of that will be born in the near future. So I've been busy this week making at least two little dresses for a baby girl that will be born in early May.

I got the idea to make this newborn Bishop dress from an issue of Embroidery & Cross Stitch and the article was called 'Welcome Home' featuring a pink bishop designed by Judith Adams.

I tried to make it exactly the same using the fabric I had available in my stash and followed her design plate.
It turned out well despite not having all the lace required as per the pattern.

Then I made an Itty Bitty Baby Dress. The pattern can be downloaded from here.

This pattern is easy and quick to make. It's so cute too that I found myself giggling while I was sewing it.

I have now used up all the yellow butterfly fabric from my stash and some lace.
