Clothes for a Baby Shower: Locally Grown Baby Bodysuit & Bass Fishing Raglan

I had a series of baby showers over this last weekend which made it a super crazy busy weekend! I love giving handmade items. Putting love and effort into something for someone to use and love.

The Bodysuit:
I love this baby bodysuit outfit that I made for a friend's baby shower! Seriously, is it not the cutest thing ever?

I used the Lullaby Bodysuit and Lap Tee pattern from Peek-A-Boo Pattern Shop (affiliate links).

I am discovering Google Drive even more and the image creator with it and used that to create the freezer paper stencil.


The cool thing with images is you can print them as pictures, make the size that you want to fit the item you are making. I printed this one on the 5x7.

I used white folk art multi-surface paint, but some people suggested to use bleach. Though I am not sure how well bleach will work with fabric and freezer paper stenciling. Doesn't matter, I love it!

How fun this! I am working on getting a few more in the works for other cities around the states. :) 

The Raglan:

I used the Rival Raglan by GYCT Designs. (affiliate link) (one of my absolute favorite pattern designers!). Such a fun patterns and so easy! I love the fish! The details my hubby did were amazing!

This is freezer paper stenciled too! The hook, line and fly are not. The hubby did those by hand. I used folk art multi-surface paint for the green and the rest are fabric markers, but applied by a toothpick.

I think it works great with the camo sleeves!

Both were made from re-purposing some old shirts excepts the onesie binding and the sleeves on the ralglan. I'm pretty excited about how they turned out and I hope that the parents-to-be enjoy them! 

Happy Sewing!
