Gift for Soon-to-be Baby: Fleece Lined Snuggie

Another project from:

 

Dear friends H+M are adopting a baby after three long years of trying and waiting, and more waiting.  The little darling hasn’t been born yet, but things are looking very good.  Not one to wait myself, I was simply too excited to hold off on all the sewing projects I have planned for their soon-to-be baby girl “A”.  Since I didn’t want to overwhelm them either, or jinx the happy news, I started off with an easy one to get them in the spirit.

This snuggie is another project from my go-to project book: Little Stitches for Little Ones snuggie-7-of-8 It took me about 3 hours to sew after I had all the pattern pieces cut out.  I chose a simple pink and brown small pattern cotton fabric (such a pattern hides mistakes much better), and lined the snuggie with cozy fleece so baby feels something soft next to her skin.  You could easily sub out the fleece for some terry cloth and make a hooded towel for after bath.  But I have a feeling that H+M will appreciate the warm fleece lining when they finally bring their newborn home and want to snuggle up to their long-awaited angel.

snuggie-6-of-8 The project itself was simple: attach the border to the fleece, make the hood and attach to one corner, attach the backing to the fleece, and then make and attach the ties.  Nothing to it.  In fact, I liked it so nice, I made it twice!  The second one is for our friend M, whose baby girl S arrived just a couple of months after Fin.  I  think all newborns should have a snuggie like this.  The snuggie may become my signature baby shower gift from Sweet Peas by Tamara.  I like it.
