I want to talk about some free baby sewing patterns that I love. I have used all of these and recommend each of them! These are the best baby sewing patterns! Which is your favorite free baby sewing pattern?
I don’t think there’s anyone more fun to sew for then little babies. They are perfect, tiny, sweet, and adorable. What is it about baby proportions that make them so cute?!
Why sew baby clothing?
A lot of people wonder why I would sew baby clothes. They say they change sizes so fast, it’s not cheap, and they are so messy.
I sew baby clothing because it’s a way I show love. Even if they change sizes quickly I can still pass that handmade item on to a family member. I love to see something I made on a loved one. You can save money by using free sewing patterns for babies and by using up scraps and smaller pieces of fabric.
Why I love free patterns for babies
- they are free!
- you can print them at home. (I’m not a fan of tracing existing clothing. Mine never come out right!)
- they are easy and simple to sew.
- All but one work for both boys and girls.
- Some come in multiple sizes so the work for a longer amount of time.
Also, here are some tips for sewing knit fabrics since some of these patterns use knit fabric which can get a little tricky!
