Baby Kimono Set

I made this cute little outfit for a recent baby shower. The kimono is from the Martha Stewart website pattern, which I do not recommend. The pattern is a pain to print and tape together and is missing some crucial markings! I couldn't find a 3-6 mo (or 6-12 mo for that matter) pair of pants to use as a patterns for these so I just made them up on the spot. I think they are more 12 mo pants but... oh well. I repurposed an Old Navy T-shirt of mine for the pants fabric and added some applique to tie the outfit together. As for the baby shoes, they came out great! I need to make them in batches because they just take so damn long and would be amenable to assembly line construction. I used the Kaffe Fassett fabric from the "Dahlia Quilt" and the shoe pattern is from Michael Miller online.

This outfit is way too cute. Absolutely love it. I'm not surprised the Martha Stewart pattern was a pain. Love the KF fabric.

Nikki, just wanted to let you know I referenced you in my blog at I was inspired by your flowers which you submitted for the bloggers' quilt festival. I made an attempt to make my own version, so I linked back to yours to make sure everyone knew what a beautiful piece I was influenced by. Thank you for making such a beautiful quilt!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I did have a great time making it. My mom was staying over that night, and she and I stayed up and talked while I sewed until 0330 that morning. She's going to quilt it by hand for me, so it will really be special for me.
I wanted to tell you I am 35, mother of 3 and retired CCU nurse!
Thanks again for visiting me. I will be watching your blog for new posts!
