This little set was a welcoming gift for a new little baby girl. Well, she's not quite so little now. She's already a couple of months old.
The size 1 skirt is made using the Faith, Hope & Love Skirts Pattern by Create HOPE Designs, an organisation giving support to orphan children. This one is the Faith skirt, one of 3 versions in the PDF pattern. Last year, I wrote a complete review of the pattern, together with more information on Create HOPE Designs.
I couldn't resist adding lace to the border. It just seemed to go so well with the polka dots. The fruit fabric is Willow Berries by Alexander Henry.
The Little Shopper Tote can be used as a first, small book bag, a little shopping tote or just a bag to carry goodies around in, when the new little one is no longer a baby. I altered the dimensions in the tutorial to combine the fabrics.
The appliquéd singlet was made by daughter, over at Little Ladybird. Both the skirt and the singlet fitted perfectly inside the tote bag. Sometimes I jazz up the bag, but this time I didn't, so as not to crush the skirt.
How do you like to welcome newborns into the world?
