DIY Babies: Elegants & Elephants

Hello!  I’m Heidi from Elegance & Elephants where I blog all about sewing for my children and designing kid’s clothing pdf patterns.  Here are some of the projects that have been keeping me busy lately.

I’m excited to be here for this wonderful series, and although my littles ones are not so little anymore (they are 3 & 5), who doesn’t love precious, sweet babies in handmade clothing?  Today, I’d like to share some of my favourite patterns for babies and hopefully you’ll find something that catches your eye.  Baby can never have too many cute outfits, right?!

Ottobre Magazine

I subscribe to this European pattern magazine and every season when I get a new issue, I (almost) drool over the adorable baby designs.  SO cute!




Also from Europe, An is an indie designer who has an eye for classic design and a talent for creating wonderful, unique patterns.

Heidi & Finn

I adore these patterns, and having tested and reviewed a few myself, I know you won’t be disappointed with the quality and the awesome results.

E & E Patterns

Ok, so I’m a little biased, but here are a few of my patterns.  I just love seeing the flickr group fill up with gorgeous garments made by my readers and the adorable babies and beautiful children wearing them.  Half of the patterns are free, too, so you may want to check them out!

Thank you so much for having me here today!  I hope you have been inspired to make some handmade clothing for the precious little one in your life.
