Quick and easy baby projects have been on my mind lately and Lotta Jansdotter’s new book, Simple Sewing for Baby: 24 Easy Projects for Newborns to Toddlers (published by Chronicle Books) is the perfect craft book for today’s stylish babies and kids. In true Lotta “Simple Sewing” fashion, you’ll be able to whip up some cute baby or toddler goods in no time. I see this fast becoming my “go-to” baby crafts book for inspiration, baby gifts, as well as things to make for my own daughter, Chloe. One project I know I’ll make a lot of is the Simple Pants pattern. Chloe is tall for her age and she can grow out of pants so quickly! It’s nice to know I can use up my fabric stash to make her some perfect fitting pants.
This spiral bound book also contains a pocket of patterns making it handy to keep everything organized. In addition to the fantastic photography by Meiko Takechi Arquillos, the book is also filled with Lotta’s cute illustrations and fabric prints. I also love the personal touch Lotta brings to the book as a mom herself. It’s wonderful to flip through the pages and see the beautiful photos of her son August throughout the book.
Pictured above are the Soft Letters which I want to make for Chloe’s room and the cute Soft Rattle shaped like a giraffe.
