Hi, I’m Lynn Harris. I usually blog over at The Little Red Hen. Today I am excited to share some cute baby clothes with you. When I first saw Rae Ritchie’s new Foxtail Forest line of fabric I knew I needed to make some baby clothes for my soon-to-arrive first grandchild. The prints are so sweet and there’s even a party print that is perfect for pajamas. I used this sweet vintage pattern (Simplicity 4535) to make pajamas for all three of my kids and even my nieces and nephews. I love that I can keep using it for my grandkids.

These pajamas were a quick project and I love the crisp look with topstitching and the color coordinated dark blue snaps.

You could use any currently available pajama pattern to make a similar pair.

Next up was a couple pair of Big Butt Baby Pants. This fun pattern by Rae Hoekstra features a contrast butt gusset and fold up cuffs for growth.

A bit of quick sewing and we have baby clothes in three sizes. We’ll be able to enjoy these cute prints for quite a while! Well, in baby terms that is. They do grow fast, don’t they?

My 10 year old daughter used the leftovers along with some soft Dear Stella Net Flannel to make burp cloths.

They were also very quick and easy. She cut 9” by 16” rectangles, sewed right sides together and then turned them right side out. Next she topstitched around the edge and put a couple of rows of stitching down the middle. Presto!

I love these adorable prints and kind of want to make myself a top from the party print.


Thanks Lynn! We think you *should* make yourself a shirt with Treetop Party! Find Rae Ritchie’s Foxtail Forest collection in stores and online now.
