Patterns for newborns: wrap the baby in comfortable clothes


Surely everyone has things in the closet that have been idle for a long time, but it's a pity to throw them out. For example, in the wardrobe of a woman who recently became a mother, there are a lot of such things. Most of them became small, the other became unclaimed in connection with the appearance of the main man in her life. After lying in the closet for at least a year, the young mother realizes that she will hardly ever put on her beloved little thing. But now there was an opportunity to find a new application for her, in particular, to alter adult clothes for children.

T-shirt before and after alteration

This method has several advantages: the thing will again become useful and the child will replenish the wardrobe. In addition, for beginners, this method is very suitable, because in case of failure it will not be so offensive as if a new fabric was spoiled. If the alteration fails, you lose almost nothing.

Easy vest

The following materials will be necessary for sewing the undershirt:

  • A piece of rectangular fabric measuring 40 * 86 cm,
  • Pattern.

In this case, you do not need to leave an additional distance, since all seams will be exclusively on the front side.

The photo shows that the pattern itself is not difficult to understand. With it, you can sew any type of vest - with or without scratches.

We bend the fabric in half and lay out ready-made patterns on it, as shown in the photo. The back should be solid., Do not forget about this fact. Outline the details.

We cut them out, as you see, we got only three details.

Using an overlock or a zig-zag stitch, we process the edges of the sleeves.

We turn the left fabric under the scratches to the front side, iron.

Fold the parts and sew the seams of the shoulders and sides. You can also make a zigzag seam.

Next, you need to process the neck, the edges of the shelves and the bottom of the vest - with a single machine seam.

We turn out the scratches, as they should be.

Life-size vest is ready. This product can be decorated with applique or embroidery (as you wish).

Cute bonnet

Consider how to sew a bonnet on a small child. For sewing you will need:

  • A piece of fabric 40 cm * 30 cm,
  • Slanting inlay 125 cm.

Cut out the pattern, which is presented below.

We apply details to a piece of fabric and circle them. We cut out, it is necessary to note the front and rear edges.

We process the leading edge. We twist it by half a centimeter on the front side, then once again we twist it by half a centimeter and iron it. Stitching machine line. Or you can sheathe with an oblique trim.

Then you need to sew on the back of the head. At first it is recommended to flash with temporary stitches from the inside. Then, with the same stitches, we sew the oblique trim too. Then we lay the machine line.

Please note that the ends of the tape must be sealed.

We process the bottom of the bonnet. The slanting inlay needs to be sewn so that you get the bonnet ties. How long they will be - you decide. The ties should be the same.

Master class number 3

The third master class offers to sew sliders on a newborn.

When sewing, you will need the following materials and tools:

  • Children's knitwear as the basis of fabric,
  • Elastic fabric,
  • Sewing pins,
  • Scissors for cutting,
  • Paper pattern,
  • Sewing machines.

Getting to work.

The pattern is presented below. It can be printed or transferred to paper with the measurements you need. Cut out the details.

Fold the purchased fabric in half with the front side inward. The threads of the lobes should be located along the entire cut of fabric. Using chalk, it is necessary to transfer the details of the pattern to the fabric.

Do not forget about the extra distance, which should be one centimeter.

Cut out the circled parts. From a fabric for elastic we cut a strip, the dimensions of which will be as follows: width - 25 cm, and length - 42 cm.

On the pattern there is a line where it says “fold”, and so on the fabric you need to fix with a pin.

Fold the front and back of the sliders with their face to each other. We make the slices even and stitch them with machine line, side and step media in a single line. The seams themselves must be walked in a zigzag seam.

The strip from which we will make the elastic must be turned into a ring so that the front part remains inside. Sew and twist. The seam is obtained on the wrong side.

The stitched parts of the sliders must be inserted into the wrong side of the elastic. Let's combine an elastic seam with one of the side seams. The cut must be made even.

We sew the elastic to the sliders with the sewing machine, do not forget to stretch it a little.

The resulting seam must be overcast.

Iron all seams at the finished product. The sliders for the newborn are ready!

V-neck T-shirt

We draw a pattern and transfer it to the fabric. We cut out two details (at the front and back only the cutouts for the neck differ).

Pattern for children's t-shirts

Sew in front and back from the wrong side. We make cuffs from the material of the cashmere, for this we cut off strips 5 cm wide (the length of the strips is less than the length of the edge of the T-shirt, since the cashmere stretches well).

Envelope for the baby

Consider how to make an envelope for a baby, in another way this type of product can also be called a "sleeping bag". It will be very convenient for the baby not only to be on the street, but also to sleep at home in the cool season.

This product will have three layers: the inner one, which consists of fleece fabric, the second layer is a thin synthetic winterizer (you can not use it if you do not need a warmed model), and the outer layer will be a raincoat fabric (there can also be any fabric according to your desire )

First, determine how large the envelope will be. We will do the following size - 80 cm * 70 cm.

Sewing process:

  • On all three types of fabric, we cut out rectangles of 82 cm * 72 cm in size. Two centimeters for seams processing.
  • Next we make a pocket. The pocket must be cut out of fleece fabric, the size of which will be 40 cm * 25cm. But we make the pocket double, its size will be 4 ° cm * 50 cm. The pocket will be further processed with a slanting inlay, therefore, an additional distance for processing the slices is not necessary.
  • The pocket blank must be folded in half, then we get a rectangle.
  • We are stitching it in a machine line two centimeters from the fold, there we will insert the elastic. Next, insert the elastic band, but in no case do not tighten it tightly so that the baby is comfortable. We fix on both sides of the gum.

  • So, now the finished pocket needs to be sewn only to the main part, as shown in the figure.

  • The location of the finished pocket should be strictly in the middle.
  • From the front and the wrong side, it is best to process the lines with an oblique trim, stitching.

  • Next, we take a synthetic winterizer and fleece fabric. We fasten the two layers together, as shown in the picture. It will be enough to flash along the planned lines with a machine line. Details are ready.

  • Then we take a detachable zipper 55 cm long and for a top 20 cm. For the top, you can use any, but a detachable one will be easiest to sew. On both sides we insert a zipper. Button it and check if everything is smooth. If so, then continue on.

  • We fold the main fabric and fleece with the front sides to each other. There should be a seamy side on both sides. We sew two parts, just do not forget to leave a place in order to turn the envelope on the front side.
  • We turn out the finished envelope, and sew the remaining non-sewn part with a secret seam so that it is not visible from the outside.

The envelope is completely ready!

We also bring to your attention several patterns by which you can sew a cotton jumpsuit:

Semi-overalls (panties on straps)

Baby clothes. Webbing sliders

We draw a pattern and transfer it to the fabric (sandpiper fabric, interlock). This pattern is suitable for growth of 74-80 cm. If you need a pattern for growth of 80 cm and a little more, you can simply lengthen the legs and lower the place of the stepping cut (under the diaper), that is, not 34 cm, but 37-38 cm.

Webbing sliders. Pattern

Webbing sliders. Pattern

We sew both parts together. In a step cut, you can sew such a detail, similar to a leaf, for better comfort to the baby.

On the edge of the entire upper part, including the straps, we sew a knitted inlay. You can make it yourself by cutting a strip 3-4 cm wide and bending the edges twice. I bought a finished knitwear in a store. We fasten or sew buttons on the straps (can be done with buttons).

Sew on the tie and fasten the buttons

Now we make cuffs (fabric kashkors, riban). I cut 2 rectangles 10x14 cm. Sew the rectangle on the side, bend so that the seams are inside. Sew them to the bottom of the legs.

I got this kind of home semi-overalls (panties on the straps) for my youngest daughter.
