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, the kit you need and the best fabrics for making baby clothes with and a list of the benefits of making baby clothes.

1. 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. 

2. WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE BABY CLOTHES

1. SEWING MACHINE

Ideally, you should use a sewing machine to make baby clothes because the stitching will be stronger. This is particularly important for when making clothes for babies who are mobile, crawling and toddling, because there will be a lot of wear on their clothes. 

2. SEWING KIT

Here’s a list of the basic things it’s good to have to hand in a sewing kit when you’re making baby clothes.

3. THREAD

Mercerized-cotton thread is a great all-rounder for cotton, rayon and linen. Go for size 50, which is medium thickness. 

4. FABRIC

Of course, you will need fabric! I’ve put a list of the best fabrics for making baby clothes below. 

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

5. WHAT CAN I SEW FOR A BABY?

Here’s a list of ideas of things you can sew for a baby aside from baby clothes:

  • Baby changing mat
  • Baby blanket
  • Burp cloths
  • Baby bibs
  • Crinkle Sheets
  • Baby quilt
