The last baby born into my family was my niece nearly 3 years ago. Now her new little brother or sister (we won’t know till they enter the world) is due in 6-9 weeks. Everyone is very excited and I really wanted to make some nice things that will be useful for baby.
But anyway on with the tutorial!!
To begin find a sleepsuit or long sleeve onesie that fits your baby and fold it in half to draft your pattern like this:
Sew main to main and lining to lining as shown below. I pinned the batting to the back of the main fabric when I sewed this and it worked. Leave a gap at the bottom to attach the zipper for easy changing.
To sew the straps, arms and neck fold the main and lining in to face each other like this:
To finish sew in zipper, buttons and buttonholes (snaps are fine too).
