It’s a story I’ve heard many times. You find out you’re pregnant or expecting a grandchild or niece or nephew, and suddenly the sewing bug bites. Cute, squishy humans bring out our best instincts to make things, and I love that. There are so many people who want to learn to sew because of babies, and I want to help them give these little humans handmade love.
So I’ve launched a course called Sew Baby Basics. This course consists of materials you can find on the blog, patterns from the pattern shop, and videos from my YouTube channel all in one place.
For $24.95 you get video instructions that can take you from absolute beginner to sewing clothing for baby, downloads and notes for each project, and several PDF patterns. Here’s the lesson list:
- Parts of Your Machine
- Thread and Sew a Straight Line
- Straight Edge Baby Blanket
- Fleece Backed Baby Blanket
- Drool Bib (sizes NB-6m)
- How to Print PDF Patterns
- How to Measure a Child
- Criss Cross Dress (Sizes NB-3T)
- Raleigh Romper (Sizes NB-3T)
- Raleigh Dress (Sizes NB-3T)
- Buttercup Bloomers (Sizes NB-3T)
- Eating Bib (Sizes 6m-18m)
And while some of the materials in the course are available either here, or on my YouTube channel, in this course you’re also getting patterns that I sell in the shop and no ads to overlook. While the ads on this site and on YouTube help support these endeavors, I know not everyone likes them, so this is another option for those of you who have asked for ad free posts and projects.
