USEFUL TIPS FOR SEWING BABY CLOTHES

Before you dive into the rest of the list of sewing patterns, here are some tips for getting started making your own baby clothes, details of a free beginner level online sewing course, the best fabrics for making baby clothes with and a list of the benefits of making baby clothes.

1. FREE online learn to sew beginner tutorial

Jump into sewing by Sara Alma on Bluprint

Online learn to sew course, Bluprint sewing course for beginners, online sewing course, beginner online sewing course, video sewing course, the best online sewing course, online sewing tutorial for kids, kids online sewing class, Sara Alma, Jump into Sewing

If you are either a complete beginner or coming back to sewing for the first time in years, Jump Into Sewing by Sara Alm on BluPrint is a great online sewing course to take

WHY I LIKE IT: This is a super simple sewing course that will help you get started quickly and easily. The course uses a placement mat project and a pillowcase project to teach you how to sew, which keeps things super simple. Plus the tutorials are so clear and easy to follow.

COURSE DURATION: The whole course is just under one hour in total.

DO NOTE: The course is for parents and kids to take together, which is what makes it so easy to follow. However, you will need to bear with the super-cutesy style and even fast forward some of the intros if you are over 12 and watching it on your own. 

REGISTER FOR FREE: You will need to register to access the free course. Registration just involves giving your name and email address. You do not need to give credit card details to register. See registration guide below.

In the course, Sara takes you through the basics of learning to sew. Alongside her introduction video, there are five tutorial videos:

  1. Exploring the sewing machine
  2. Threading the sewing machine
  3. Your first trial project
  4. Pillow project part 1
  5. Pillow project part 2

2. TIPS FOR MAKING BABY CLOTHES

  1. Time – babies grow and they grow fast! Make sure you allow enough time to make the outfit so that the baby has plenty of time to wear it. 
  2. Comfort – think about the comfort of the baby whilst wearing the outfit. Go for fabrics that are lightweight and soft on the skin. Avoid nylon, rayon and polyester as they are quite scratchy fabrics. See my list of the best fabrics to make baby clothes with below. 
  3. Safety – think about the safety of the fabric. Synthetic fabrics may not catch fire easily, but they can burn badly once they are alight. Cotton and cotton mixes can burn very easily, so make sure to follow fabric guidelines especially if you are making nightwear for a baby. 
  4. Laundering – Ideally, baby clothes should be super easy to wash in a washing machine. Also, make sure the fabric can be washed at a suitable temperature and won’t shrink. Think about the nature of the outfit you are making. If the outfit you are making is for a special occasion it is less important that it can be easily laundered. 
  5. Colour and pattern – think about the skin tone / likely skin tone of the baby you are making for. Think also about going with a plain fabric if you are just starting out sewing baby clothes, it will be easier than trying to work with a pattern. 

3. BEST FABRICS FOR MAKING BABY CLOTHES

Here is a list of the best fabrics to sew baby clothes with. These fabrics are great for making baby rompers, baby grows and all sorts of other baby clothes. 

Do bear in mind that if you are a complete beginner at sewing it is best to use a fabric that doesn’t have any stretch, as it is much easier to control. And always check a baby clothes pattern for which fabrics are best to use.

4. BENEFITS OF MAKING BABY CLOTHES

  1. You can make special outfits more cheaply than buying them (the reality is that you won’t really save money by making baby basics)
  2. You are creating something unique the baby who wears it
  3. It’s more environmentally friendly if you upcycle old clothes as fabric for baby clothes
  4. If you’re good at making baby clothes you could sell them to make extra money on Etsy
  5. Handmade baby clothes make really meaningful gifts
  6. You could discover a new hobby and craft skill
  7. Creating something for your baby is a great way to relax and unwind
  8. It’s a great way to while away the final weeks before your baby is due
