Three Great Sewing Books that Feature Projects for Babies

A look at three sewing project books that offer perfect projects for babies.

Handmade Beginnings: 24 Sewing Projects to Welcome Baby

Written by Anna Marie Horner, one of my favorite fabric designers who leans towards a more whimsical style, Handmade Beginnings: 24 Sewing Projects to Welcome Baby is an awesome project book that was written while Anna Marie was pregnant and preparing for her own baby. The book is full of projects that are stunningly beautiful and are sure to become family heirlooms.

Handmade Beginnings features projects not only for baby, but also for the nursery and mom. Among the twenty-four projects featured in the book are nesting cubes for baby, Cute as a Button Booties, a dress for mom, a maternity top that can be used later on as a nursing top, and a Family Portrait Tree.

Also included with the book are seven loose-leaf patterns for projects within the book, and a brief primer on sewing for babies, which includes advice on selecting fabrics, as well as safety considerations.

Sweet Booties! And Blankets, Bonnets, Bibs amp; More

Written by Valerie Van Arsdale Shrader, Sweet Booties! And Blankets, Bonnets, Bibs amp; More features more than thirty different projects that are perfect for a new baby.

Most all of the projects in the Sweet Booties! are quite simple. In the book you can find patterns for bibs, baby shoes, baby hats, toys, a burp cloth, a bath hoodie, and more.

Amy Butler's Little Stitches for Little Ones

Amy Butler is another of my favorite fabric designers, and her book Amy Butler's Little Stitches for Little Ones does not disappoint her fans. The book features twenty sewing projects that are perfect for a contemporary nursery.

Among the projects you will find in Little Stitches you will find a snuggly wrap blanket, plush toys, diaper bags, and travel bibs. The book also features seven patterns that are stored away in a folder inside the book. Amy also offers tips on choosing fabrics that are baby friendly.
