I love to design and sew for my grandkids. I would like to connect with others with similar interest. I have looked all over the forum and have not found such discussions going on. If I have overlooked it, please disregard this thread and direct me to it.
Surely there are others out there who love to sew for the lil' ones. At the present time, I'm having the best time sewing for my 2yo toddler dgd. I have older grandkids that I sew for occasionally, but at the present time. I'm on a roll sewing for the 2yo.
So if you have an interest in bouncing ideas, patterns, etc. Lets unite and sew for the lil' ones.
See ya,
Peachy

peachy- this is the focus of most of my sewing- although now my youngest DGD is about to have her eighth birthday- I am still sewing for her but not as much as when she was 2- my 2 year old grand is a boy- who does love to have me make things for him- but somehow it just isn't the same-I would love to share opinions and thoughts tho-anytime!!! Bye the way- I live in GA too! -

I know exactly what you mean, as they get older I don't sew as much for them either. A 2yo is just so fun to sew for. I like that you don't have a lot of issues with fitting.
So what area of Ga do you live? I live in S Ga.

I have a 8-month-old daughter. I do sew for her, but people give us clothes and I always see really cute clothes for her as well. But, I have tons of fabric stashed to make her things. I would love to participate in a sew along.

I have 5 grandsons ranging in age from 2 months to 10 years. The older ones all love it when I make them things -- whether clothing or otherwise. For Valentine's Day I gave them each a polar fleece hat that I made suitable for their age.

I'm now working on spring jackets for each of them which will go in their Easter baskets.

I sew out of necessity for my 8 year old grandson -- he is very tall and super slim so Granny gets called on a lot to either alter purchased pants or to make pants from scratch.

I would love a little girl to sew for .....

Shebear, what jacket are you making for the 2 month old? Right now I am into diapers, and burp clothes for my one month old granddaughter, but have a lot on the list for her!

I'll play! I sew most of Gracie's wardrobe. She'll be 3 in April and she's a total doll to dress!

I think this is a great idea! I have been mostly sewing items for my almost-10-month-old and feel a bit on the fringes on PR sometimes, as most reviews posted seem to be for ladies' garments.

I have been trying to sew for myself lately and am finishing up a dress, but I will be cutting out B-6030 tonight! I'm making a little button-up shirt for a friend's baby for his 1st birthday in two weeks and the fabric's in the wash! I also plan to sew another pair of jeans for my DD soon, using S-3582. Oh, and I have a pair of flannel overalls cut from S-2523 that I need to make up soon while they still have a chance of fitting!

*ETA: I'm very excited to try sewing clothes for a little man. I think my wiring's a bit mixed up, as I have pretty simple tastes and am not into accessorizing and I ended up with a little girl :)

Connie

I'm using an old OOP Butterick

Butterick 6608

I'm making the jacket in the upper left but I'm actually lining it -- the outer layer is an old stash knit with bears flying kites and having a picnic (the predominant colours are white, navy and red) and the lining is a red knit also from stash. I'm also replacing the buttons with a zipper. I'm actually doing the medium size since he was a big baby at birth -- 9 lbs 12 ozs and when I saw him again at 6 weeks he was already 14 lbs.

I wanna play too! I no longer have little ones to sew for now that Layla is a teenager and prefers Hot Topic type clothing, but I will sew with you all as I'm able and donate my duds to the local homeless shelter or our county's Children's Services dept.. They always need clothing for children who are removed from the home in emergency cicumstances.

I have a counter full of UFO's that I drug out the other day, Layla is now 13 and some of the UFO's were a kid's size 7!! ( Now a misses size 8!)

Off topic, but do any of you know what happend to the One Dress Foundation? It was a charity that provided dresses to disadvantaged girls on a Native American reservation out west. Their theory was that every little girl should have at least "one dress" to call her own. There used to be several people here on PR who sewed dresses for them. I can't locate the web site anymore, and I really enjoyed making things for them.
