Here's one of the baby gifts in my current parade of baby gifts - Made by Rae's (free!) basic baby pants. I made these today, and I can share them because Augie's mom and dad don't read my blog. Neither does Augie, but he's only 2 weeks old, so that's to be expected.
Squee! I was giggling the whole time I was making these - they're so tiny and cute! I made these two pairs in about an hour, and that includes cutting out and going up and down the stairs to iron all the seams. This pattern is so easy, even if you've never sewn anything before you could make these, thanks to the lovely tutorial Rae posted. ONE pattern piece - two pages to print out! If you need a baby gift in a hurry, I highly recommend these.
I did my center and leg seams on my serger to make things even quicker - sewn and finished in one go. Honestly, the part that took the longest (aside from going through my stash and deciding which fabrics said "Augie") was turning back and pressing the hems and waistband.
Tomorrow I'll be sewing a dress for a new little girl . . . babies are the funnest!
